John C. "Jack" Good

John C. "Jack" Good graduated with a B.S. In Forestry in 1941 and immediately served in the US Army. He was part of the 87th Mountain Infantry Regiment, our country's first ski regiment. He trained dozens of new ski troops and participated in several of the big battles of World War II in France, Belgium, and Germany. After a battle injury, the army retired him from service in July 1945 as a full lieutenant and a company commander.

Good began his forestry career in the summer of 1945 as a farm forester working for the Virginia Forest Service out of Roanoke. In January 1946 he began his career at Bartlett Tree Experts as a trainee on a line crew and now serves as senior vice president of the company. No employee of Bartlett's Mid-East Division exceeds Jack's longevity.

Good is active in establishing scholarships for students and recruiting students to the profession and to his company. He has served many years on the advisory board at Penn State Mont Alto. His community service is extensive and includes involvement with Boy Scouts, his church, the Chambersburg Hospital, and many other groups. He is also an active member of the International Society of Arboriculture and other arborist organizations. People in all walks of professional and personal life consider him a man of highest integrity, professionalism, and community spirit.
