Certified Arborist-Behunin Tree

What is a Certified Arborist?

An arborist by definition is an individual who is trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees. ISA Arborist Certification is a non-governmental, voluntary process by which individuals can document their base of knowldege. It operates without mandate of law and is an internal, self-regulating device adminstered by the International Society of Arboriculture. Certification provides a measurable assessment of an individual’s knowledge and competence required to provide proper tree care..

Certification is not a measure of standards

Certification is not a measure of standards of practice. Certification can asttest to the tree knowledge of an individual but cannot guarantee or ensure quality performances.

Certified arborists are individuals who have achieved a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care through experience passing a comprehensive examination developed by some of the nation’s leading experts on tree care.

Certified arborists must also continue their education to m aintain their certification. Therefore, they should be up-to-date on the latest techniques in arboriculture.
