Eliminating branches near power lines
Get rid of branches touching structures, walkways, or other hazards
Improve tree structure for wind and storm resistance
Training young trees for better maintenance and longevity
Thinning for better light penetration
Aesthetic restructuring
Removing dead or dying trees without damaging surroundings
Relocating trees to a more appropriate environment or placement
Preventative maintenance
Bracing or cabling for support
Soil aeration for root health and development
Fertilization and feeding
Disease and insect management

Rigorous Certification Process

A certified arborist has been educated and trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual and groups of trees. The process is not regulated by the government, but is a voluntary certification for those who wish to document their knowledge and expertise. The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) provides certification in the form of rigorous testing and ongoing education. Therefore, certified arborists will tend to be more up-to-date on the latest techniques. Learn more about certified arborists at the ISA website.
