Why Hire a Certified Arborist


Beautiful trees can add a lot to the value and look of your property. On the same token, trees that aren’t well cared for can detract from the value of your property and actually create a risk for property damage and personal injury.

When you choose an arborist you’re making an investment in the entire value and safety of you and your property.

There are many tree trimming services out there, with many different prices and business models. What’s the difference between all of them and what makes one better than the other?

This article will outline what it means to be a Certified Arborist and why you should always hire a Certified Arborist for all of your tree care needs.

What is a Certified Arborist:

A Certified Arborist is a Tree Care Professional who is certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (The ISA).

Defined by the ISA, 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.”

What Does It Take To Become a Certified Arborist?

The ISA is an organization formed to ensure that arborists are adhering to the most recent and strict tree care and safety methods. This not only ensures the safety of you and your property, but for the worker as well.The Exam

Becoming a Certified Arborist doesn’t just mean that the professional has passed a test when beginning their career. To be a Certified Arborist one must constantly participate in continuing education. Always learning the most recent tree care methods. Renewing their certification every three years.

Being a Certified Arborist means that the professional is always keeping up on the latest safety standards and equipment maintenance protocols. Knowing how to properly use and repair their equipment. Ensuring that your trees are cared for properly and that the worker is properly insured and practices safety at all times.

Does Experience Replace ISA Certification?

Just because a professional has years of experience trimming trees, it doesn’t mean that they are actually practicing correct tree care methods.

Many common historical practices like wound dressing and tree topping are actually quite ineffective and even harmful to trees.tree surgeon tools

Staying up-to-date on tree infections, pests, equipment safety, roping and climbing practices, aerial rescue methods, tree care science, etc. are all crucial aspects of tree care that are constantly changing and being updated.

Hiring an ISA Certified Arborist means that you will receive the most current tree care methods available from a professional who knows.

High Quality Services:

When you hire a Certified Arborist you know you are employing someone who cares about their business. A professional who takes the time to stay certified and always learn more about their craft.

If you are looking for cut-rate bids on tree care services, chances are, you will get cut rate services. Possibly leading to damaged trees and more costs down the road in repairs and maintenance.

But when you find a Certified Arborists who takes the time to stay trained and up-to-date. Always maintaining their equipment and certifications. You can rest easy knowing that you are making an investment in the long-term health of your trees. In turn investing in the value and safety of your property.

It pays to hire a Certified Arborist.
