FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is an ISA Certified Arborist?
ISA, short for the International Society of Arboriculture, is an association in which Arboriculture professionals can pursue a formal education to expand their knowledge, and skills. In turn, these individuals can achieve a certification that gives them a competitive advantage over those who are unqualified in the field.
Certified Arborists are individuals who demonstrate the knowledge and skills to properly care for trees. Like David the Tree Guy, we are able to demonstrate our commitment to the profession by continuing the ISA Continued Education Units (CEUs) every three years to maintain the certification.
