What is an ISA Certified Arborist?

An ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) Certified arborist is a trained tree specialist. Their certification is a voluntary process that any arborist can receive provided they have enough knowledge and training. A comprehensive examination provided by the nation’s top tree experts determines if an arborist can receive certification.

A professional with an ISA certification has a minimum of three years of experience working in the industry. If they don’t have work experience they are required to have a four-year degree in arboriculture, horticulture, landscape architecture, or forestry. To keep their certification, arborists must maintain their education. That means that any ISA arborists you hire will always be up-to-date on the latest tree trends and knowledge.

Why Hire a Certified Arborist?

Hiring an arborist doesn’t just occur when you need a tree removed or have a tree emergency. In fact, having an arborist check the health of your trees is beneficial every couple of years. By investing in the health of your trees, you invest in the value of your property.

Additionally, tree removal can be very dangerous. Especially if you are not trained in proper removal techniques. Without the help or expertise of an expert, tree removal can become life-threatening. Hiring a professional in most cases is the safest method to remove a tree or trim branches on more mature trees.

What Does an ISA Certified Arborist Do?

An ISA certified arborist can:

  • Help make trees more attractive and grow better
  • Increase the value of your property with healthy cared-for trees
  • Decrease potential liability by keeping the property safe
  • Trim and prune tree branches so your trees grow better

Typical service they provide are:

  • Tree trimming and pruning
  • Tree removal
  • Risk assessments and consulting services
  • Emergency tree services
  • Preventative plant health maintenance

When Should You Hire an Arborist?

The ISA recommends you hire an ISA Certified Arborist every 2-3 years to check the health of your trees. That being said, there may be circumstances where you require their services sooner than a regular checkup. You should call an ISA Certified when you notice the following:

  • Dead or decaying trees or branches
  • Potential safety hazards
  • Crowding with tree branches or tree obstructions
  • Trees that need to be removed or relocated
  • New plantings and recommendations from an arborist
  • Storm damaged trees
