What is an ISA Certified Arborist and Why is it so Important?

In a previous post, The Top 8 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Tree Care Service, we specified that an ISA certified arborist was an important credential to look for in Tree Care Service.  But what exactly is an ISA Certified Arborist?  The ISA, or International Society of Arboriculture, is a non-profit organization “which through research, technology, and education, promotes the professional practice of arboriculture and fosters a greater worldwide awareness of the benefits of trees.”  Essentially the ISA recognizes the importance of one of our greatest and most necessary natural resources: our trees.  “The ISA exists so that professionals, allied professionals, public officials, and consumers worldwide recognize the economic, environmental, and societal benefits and values of trees and their care at a cost that demonstrates the wise stewardship of resources.”  To acquire an ISA Certified Arborist credential, an arborist must be trained and knowledgeable in all aspects of arboriculture as well as adhere to a Code of Ethics that strengthens the credibility and reliability of the workforce.  An Arborist may qualify to earn the certification through an extensive examination process only with multiple years of hands of field experience in addition to a degree in the field of arboriculture, horticulture, landscape architecture, or forestry from a regionally accredited educational institute.  It is a highly sought after certification and one that we at Titan Tree Care take great pride in.  We feel strongly about the crucial roll our trees play in our ecosystem and this certification also allows for continuing education on better ways to protect and preserve this natural resource.  Our three ISA Certified Arborists, Ben Simcox, Adam Das, and Tom Miles are proud to share their expertise to better serve your needs and the needs of our environment.
