Is my “Tree Specialist” Certified?

By Hillary HeathTipsComments are off

An arborist is an individual trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees.

Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care.

But does your arborist have the credentials you want?

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.

Certified Arborists must also continue their education to maintain their certification and adhere to a Code of Ethics. Therefore, they are more likely to be up to date on the latest techniques in arboriculture.

ISA Certification requires extensive training and an examination in the areas of:

  • Soil Management
  • Tree Identification and Selection
  • Installation and Establishment
  • Safe Work Practices
  • Tree Biology
  • Pruning
  • Diagnosis and Treatment
  • Urban Forestry
  • Tree Protection
  • Tree Risk Management


Anyone can claim to be an expert or a specialist, but at Heath Tree Service we can prove it.
