In the Landscape

If a Tree Falls…

July 31, 2019

Today we discuss how Arborists care for trees, and what it means to become an ISA Certified Arborist, including how the certification may benefit you as a landscape professional, and how landscape consumers can benefit from seeking out a certified arborist. We cover how one becomes certified, and what the continuing education looks like. Tree Risk Assessment is an important function of a certified arborist and often results in saving trees. We also touch on a few outdated practices to be aware of, and we'll cover more tree health topics in future episodes.

International Society of Arboriculture: provides the public with educational information about the benefits of trees and how to properly care for trees in the urban environment. The site contains resources from the International Society of Arboriculture.
