All of our Arborist/Sales people are Certified Arborists through the International Society of Arborists. They are required to attend continuing education classes on a regular basis to stay abreast of the newest trends in the care of trees and treatment of disease. In addition, our Arborists consult with tree experts all over the United States and Canada to exchange ideas and knowledge.
