Our Staff
Nate Faris

Nate is the Director of Community Forestry.  Since joining the KIB staff in 2005, he has worked with communities in Indianapolis to plant thousands of trees. TRIVIA: Nate is the first arborist in Indiana to achieve both of arboriculture’s highest distinctions: Registered Consulting Arborist and Board Certified Master Arborist!

You are likely to find Nate giving a neighborhood tree planting demonstration, in the tree yard loading trees on a trailer, or in the office cooking up creative plans with other KIB staff.

A beautiful place in Indy would be…

Summer on a neighborhood street with the shade of trees and neighbors outside biking, running, and walking.
