Tips for Selecting an Arborist
Hire someone who is bonded, licensed and insured.
Ask for references and consider more than one bid.
Ask for a certified arborist, someone who has passed the International Society of Arboriculture's extensive certification exam covering all aspects of tree care.
Membership in professional organizations such as the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), the National Arborist Association (NAA) or the American Society of Consulting Arborists (ASCA) demonstrates a willingness on the part of the arborist to stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and information.
A good arborist won't recommend topping and should try to talk you out of it if you request to have a tree topped.
Never allow a climber to use spikes or spurs to climb your tree unless the tree is to be removed.
Friends of Trees is pleased to partner with many arborists in the Portland-Vancouver metro area. Our Arborist Members make significant contributions to the health of our urban forest. All are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).
If you would like to become an Arborist Member, please contact Development Director Eric Allen.
Though we appreciate the contributions made by all of our Arborist Members, Friends of Trees does not endorse individual arborists.
