What follows below is an list of our services, some of which
includes definitions found on the ISA consumer website. Please visit
the glossary page for additional information about our approach.

  • Planting - All I.S.A. Certified Arborists are trained how to
    properly plant a tree, but not all companies offer this service.
    Look for companies that list tree planting as a service or ask if
    they do tree planting.

  • Pruning - Pruning is the most common arboricultural practice.
    ISA Certified Arborists have the education and training to prune
    trees according to national pruning standards and I.S.A. Best
    Management Practices.

  • Removals - Tree removal can be an extremely hazardous
    undertaking that requires specialized training and equipment.
    Professional arborists are equipped to remove trees safely,
    while minimizing damage to surrounding property.

  • Stump Grinding - Usually, once a tree has been removed, the
    property owner will also want the stump ground out. Most full-
    operation tree services will offer this service.

  • Diagnosis of a sick tree - I.S.A. Certified Arborists have the
    education and experience to diagnose tree health problems
    and recommend treatments.

  • Fertilization - Although trees grow quite well in the forest
    without supplemental fertilization, urban and suburban soils
    may lack the vital nutrients that trees need. Many tree service
    companies offer fertilization as one of many plant health care

  • Cabling/Bracing - Sometimes it is possible to mitigate the risk
    of tree/branch failure by installing cables and/or braces to
    provide supplemental support.

  • Consulting - Consulting arborists provide written reports for
    many aspects of tree management including: appraisal values,
    property loss, risk assessment, diagnosis, preservation of
    trees during construction, and many more. Not all I.S.A.
    Certified Arborists are Registered Consultants, and not all
    Registered Consultants are Certified Arborists.

  • Public Education - Some arborists enjoy the opportunity to
    educate the public about proper tree care practices. This might
    include presentations to garden clubs, tree planting projects, or
    even Arbor Day demonstrations of what arborists do.

  • Tree Value Estimates - In cases of catastrophic loss, legal
    disputes, or simple assessments, an appraisal of a tree's
    value is sometimes required. Some I.S.A. Certified Arborists
    offer tree appraisals as a consulting service.

  • Tree Risk Assessment - Except for the youngest and smallest
    trees, most all trees pose a potential risk from failure. A
    professional arborist can assess this risk and recommend
    measures to minimize it.

  • Landscape Services - Some arborists offer landscape
    services beyond arboricultural work. This might include
    landscape design or installation, landscape maintenance,
    lawn care, irrigation installation, or any of various other related
    services.  SEE LANDSCAPING LINK (above left)

  • Pest Management - The key to avoiding pest problems on
    landscape trees and shrubs is to maintain a plant health care
    system. This involves proper selection and maintenance of
    plants, and monitoring of health and pest issues. Pest
    management also includes provision of the appropriate
    treatments for controlling pests.

  • Tree Preservation Planning - There is very little that can be
    done to treat trees that have been damaged due to construction-
    related activities. This is why it is essential to involve an arborist
    early in development projects to ensure that measures are
    taken to protect the trees.

  • Tree Relocation - Although it can be expensive, trees can often
    be transplanted to new locations. The size and species of trees
    that can be moved varies with climate, soil types, and
    equipment available.
