DendroTech was conceived, designed and developed by Rob Gross, a seasoned field-biologist. He trained at UC Davis and has worked in three UC programs and at two USFS Research Stations as a Technician and Staff Research Associate. Throughout his career, Rob has continued to work in the private sector where he is able to combine his rich mixture of field experience fortified with the rigors of UCD education and research. With a long track record as a leading-edge Consulting Arborist and Wildlife Habitat Specialist, Rob's career has been marked by various research efforts and numerous professional developments, innovations and new professional methods.

In addition to oak-dependent wildlife, at DendroTech, we have conducted wildlife investigations focusing on Mountain Lions and Peninsular Desert Bighorn Sheep. Over years and throughout California, we participated in tracking studies to identify Mountain Lion trends across the state. The Desert Bighorn Sheep work was conducted on the southern border of California. Through that study, we located, captured and treated diseased Bighorn Sheep lambs.
