What is a certified arborist? A Certified Arborist is an experienced professional who has passed an extensive examination given by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and is trained in the art and science of planting, caring for and maintaining trees.

What is the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA)? The ISA has served the tree care industry for more than 80 years as a scientific and educational non-profit organization. The ISA supports tree care worldwide and is dedicated to the care and preservation of trees. The ISA is instrumental in providing a better understanding of trees and tree care through research, educating professionals as well as the consumers.

What is the difference between an arborist and a certified arborist? Arborists are professionals that are knowledgeable and equipped to provide a variety of services to maintain trees. An ISA Certified Arborist is an individual who has achieved a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care through at least 3 years experience and has passed a comprehensive examination administered by the ISA. ISA Certified Arborists are also required to continue their education to maintain their certification. This ensures their knowledge is always the current arboriculture techniques.

Why should I hire a Certified Arborist? Tree trimming and removals can be dangerous work, especially if performed by under qualified individuals. Certified Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper tree care. Proper tree care is an investment that gives landscapes a special beauty and can add value to the property.

How do I know if my tree should be removed? It is best to get the advice of a Certified Arborist on this. Many factors come into play and only a Certified Arborist can offer this information after a thorough examination of the tree.
