Zachary Harteau, Director of Safety and Training


Zachary joined Bret Achtenhagen’s Seasonal Services in July of 2017 in the role of Director of Safety and Training. He grew up on a farm in South Eastern Wisconsin where he developed a love of nature and plants. Zachary decided to study landscape design at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities while working for a landscape firm in Lake Bluff, Illinois during the summer. During this time, he gained a great deal of industry knowledge and has been working in landscape environment for the last 8 years. Zachary’s primary focus is to provide our crews with the technical training they need to create the highest quality landscapes. This effort provides our clients with the most knowledgeable and professional crews the industry has to offer.

In his free time, you can find Zachary spending time outdoors and canoeing. He also like to spend time on the family farm whenever possible. This is so he can reconnect with his family “roots” (pun intended)
