Theoretically, anyone working in the tree care industry could be called an Arborist. But an ISA-Certified Arborist is a special credential which signifies a professional who has made a career commitment to the art and science of tree care. Here are some things to know.

Unbiased Advice for your Trees or Shrubs

A Certified Arborist is committed to providing you with the best unbiased advice available for the care of your trees and shrubs. A reputable Certified Arborist doesn’t ‘sell tree work’, he or she advises the options available to you and helps you to make an informed decision about the proper care of your trees.

Health & Hazard Assessment

A Certified Arborist is able to provide you with an assessment of the health of your trees. An Arborist’s training allows them to identify potential problems before they become real hazards. While even perfectly healthy trees can uproot or fall in a storm, identifying trees on your property which are in declining health or stability can help to prevent future problems.

ISA Certification

The ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) is a credentialing-organization which ensures that its members are adhering to industry best practices, maintaining high ethical standards, and providing customers with unparalleled service, through continued training.

Adherence to “Best Practices” for Tree Care

A Certified Arborist will ensure that tree pruning (or trimming) is completed in a specific manner in accordance with industry standards; that the pruning will be done at the proper time of year, and that the correct tools will be used for the project.
