What is a Certified Arborists:
Certified arborists are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture. This is a non-profit organization that certifies professionals who have demonstrated their knowledge and skills in tree care, tree surgery, and other related fields. The International Society of Arboriculture, is internationally renowned for its high standards in tree care, so meeting their standards to obtain certification is no easy task. This certification process is rigorous, requiring a high level of skill in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining trees.
When a professional becomes an ISA Certified Arborist®, they are then seen by their peers and the general public as a tree care professional who has attained a very high level of knowledge in areas required to receive this certification. Those areas include: tree biology, diagnosis, maintenance practices, safety, and other subject and practice areas within the tree care profession. To maintain this certification, arborists must complete continuing education each year. This added requirement to continue their learning, ensures they are always gaining valuable insight on new techniques to pay forward to their clients.
What can a certified arborist help with?
Certified arborists help with any service you are familiar with getting from a tree company, such as: tree removal, stump grinding, tree trimming, tree pruning, and tree planting. However there are a few additional services they provide which can be very important when it comes to the safety and health of a tree. Soil aeration to improve root growth, cabling and bracing for added support to branches with weak attachments, and deciding which species of tree would flourish in certain locations are all valuable services offered by a certified arborist.
Why is it important to look for a certified arborist?
Certification is useful for many reasons. It ensures expertise and knowledge on how to handle any issue that your trees may face. It shows the arborist’s dedication to the field as this is a voluntary not required certification. Lastly, this certification helps to build trust with our clients, because they know we have everything needed to keep their property safe from tree-related issues.
The certified arborist is a rare breed. Most Tree Companies you come across will not have access to a certified arborist which is unfortunate as these certified experts hold many of the answers to tree-related questions.
In short, certifications are put in place in any field to deliver a quality of service. The certification of arborists is no exception to that rule, so making sure you require certification to handle your project will ensure you have the right level of service working with you on your trees.
