With a wide range of companies offering tree care services, it can be difficult to know which one will provide you with the quality service and care that your trees need to thrive. One way to help ensure that your trees receive the best care is to hire a certified arborist.
Although there are tree services that are not related to the International Society of Arboriculture and its certifications, hiring a certified arborist can help raise your chances of receiving high-quality tree care.
To qualify for testing to become a certified arborist, an individual must have three verifiable years in the tree care industry and have a Certified Arborist that is willing to sign off as their sponsor. After passing the extensive testing and earning their certification, they are required to continue their education to maintain their status as a Certified Arborist.
You can check that a company is a certified arborist by checking the International Society of Arboriculture website as well as www.angieslist.com and the Better Business Bureau website. These three websites should provide you with all the information necessary to help you confirm whether a company is a Certified Arborist or not.
A Certified Arborist is required to continue their education to maintain their certification. This not only keep them certified, but it will also provide them with the latest techniques and knowledge of tree care, ensuring you receive quality, up-to-date tree care, and services.
Trimming, pruning, and removing trees can be a dangerous and challenging task. A Certified Arborist is likely to be more prepared with the proper knowledge, procedures, and equipment to complete your tree service safely, without harm to people or property.

When you choose a Certified Arborist, your tree will be evaluated and then serviced with only the necessary trimming, pruning, and other tree care techniques it needs to keep it healthy and thriving.
