Becoming an ISA Certified Arborist requires a wide knowledge base encompassing the many aspects of a tree's health, vitality, and longevity. The knowledge required to become an ISA Certified Arborist includes, but isn't limited to:
- Tree Biology
- Tree Identification
- Tree and Soil relations
- Water Management
- Tree Nutrition and Fertilization
- Tree Selection, Installation and Establishment (planting)
- Tree Support Systems (Cabling and Bracing)
- Diagnosis and Tree Disorders
- Tree Assessment and Risk Management
- Preserving Trees in Construction Zones
Along with an ISA Certification, a Tree Risk Assessment Certification also separates Sound Arbor from a lot of the other companies out there. This certification allows the holder to more accurately identify hazardous trees, and if necessary, fill out the paperwork cities require to remove those hazardous trees. More and more cities are requiring a Certified Tree Risk Assessor to assess hazardous trees and make recommendations for removal before such a removal can go forward.
Whether you are looking for a consultation on pruning techniques, health and vigor of your trees, options for putting a failing tree on "life support", or any number of questions you have about your trees, call Sound Arbor and have a professional give you the facts.
