Phil Lobojko, Our Newest Certified Arborist

We are proud to announce that our long-time, dedicated employee, Phillip Lobojko has recently completed all requirements by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and has passed his exam to be a Certified Arborist. Phillip is now Trees "R" Us, Inc.'s 5th Certified Arborist. Please join us in congratulating our newest Certified Arborist! Congratulations to Phillip Lobojko for completing his arborist test.

What is a Certified Arborist?

A Certified Arborist is an important part of any tree service. Certified Arborists have an important role and perform certain jobs that other tree crew members can not. Certified Arborists are individuals who have decided to go through extensive training to achieve a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care. Before finishing the program, individuals must complete hands-on hours  and also pass a comprehensive examination developed by some of the nation’s leading experts on tree care. Once you have successfully completed these requirements, you're not done! The International Society of Arboriculture demands that to keep your certification, you must also continue your education and adhere to a Code of Ethics. Therefore, Certified Arborists are more likely to be up-to-date on the latest techniques in arboriculture.

Who is The International Society of Arboriculture?

The International Society of Arboriculture certification is not a government-sponsored or government-endorsed program. Rather 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. As a result, The International Society of Arboriculture certification is not a measure of standards of practice; it is much more than that since they are able to create their own standards. You can rest assured that when a tree service sends a Certified Arborist to work with you and your trees 
that it is a testament to their knowledge of trees and tree care.

Hiring a Tree Service?

When hiring a tree service, one of the best questions you can ask them is if you will be working with a Certified Arborist. Their knowledge about the needs of trees and equipped to provide proper care far exceeds that uncertified tree crew members. His job is to lead his tree crew team into providing you with the best tree care available. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly.

Trees are an Investment

We know first-hand how important proper tree care is. It is an investment that can lead to substantial returns and we see that day in and day out in our business. Well-cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. A Certified Arborist will know how to give your trees a long, healthy life while keeping the structure of the tree safe. 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.

Congratulations, Phil!

We congratulate Phil Lobojko on a job well done! Welcome to the Trees "R" Us, Inc. team of Certified Arborists! We are proud to have you on board!
