Trees are significant to our everyday lives, and they need proper care to ensure they stay healthy and vibrant. They enhance your property’s aesthetic value. They beautify our surroundings, purify our air, act as sound barriers, manufacture precious oxygen, and help us save energy through their cooling shade in summer and their wind reduction in winter.
That is why hiring an ISA Certified Arborist for your property is a great decision.
An arborist is also known as a tree surgeon or arboriculturist. An arborist is a professional in the practice of arboriculture, which is the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees, shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants in dendrology and horticulture.
They use power and hand tools to prune, hedge, and remove trees. They may specialize in keeping trees healthy, planting trees or landscaping.
To qualify for the ISA’s Certified Arborist credentialing exam, candidates need at least three years of experience. However, candidates who hold an associate’s degree need two years of experience.
Certified Arborists are accredited through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Each individual who passes the specific test for certification will hold the title of ‘Certified Arborist’ for three years, during which time they must accumulate 30 continuing education units to maintain their certification.
The difference between a Certified Arborist and a Consulting Arborist resides with the organization that issues the title.
International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) was founded in 1945 and is a leading, global, nonprofit organization with more than 40,000 members worldwide. ISA develops standards, certifies industry professionals, provides education and training, publishes books and technical articles, and hosts conferences and exhibitions for automation professionals. ISA’s 160 geographical sections, connect members with technology, expert advice, and world-class technical programming.
In some cases, employers prefer arborists that are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).
