Why you need a Certified Arborist

Most times I tell customers that we have 4 certified arborists on staff I get a barrage of questions about arboriculture.  Arborists are an integral part of tree care and maintenance.  Many people don't realize the value arborists bring to your tree maintenance regimen.  

An arborist, by definition, is an individual trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees. Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly.

Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well-cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.

When choosing to hire an arborist, it is best to only consider those arborists that are certified in arboriculture.  Certified arborists are individuals who have achieved a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care through experience and by passing a comprehensive examination developed by some of the nation’s leading experts on tree care. Certified arborists must also continue their education to maintain their certification and adhere to a Code of Ethics. Therefore, they are more likely to be up to date on the latest techniques in arboriculture.

Becoming certified arborist is a voluntary process through which individuals can measure their knowledge and competence required to provide proper tree care. Certification is not government-sponsored or government-endorsed; it is administered by the International Society of Arboriculture as a way for tree care professionals to demonstrate their commitment to the profession and the industry.
