Q: What is a ISA Certified Arborist?
A: An arborist is an individual trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees. Certification provides a means to access an individual’s knowledge and competence required to provide proper tree care. Although certification is not a measure of standards of practice, it can attest to the tree knowledge of an individual. There is a need for systematic pruning during the first 30 years of a tree’s life. This formative pruning will improve structure, reduce hazards and save money in the long-term. Establishing good structure and form in young trees will prevent future hazards and liability. Common problems like included crotches and multiple leaders are easy to correct in young trees, but difficult to fix in larger older trees. Furthermore, consistent pruning saves labor and money by reducing the destruction of property due to tree failure, high pruning costs to remove large limbs and liability. Meanwhile, it increases the lifespan of trees, thereby reducing removal, planting and establishment costs. Certified arborists are individuals who have achieved a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care through experience and passing a comprehensive examination developed by some of the nation’s leading experts in the tree care industry.

Q: What is the best time to prune trees?
A: Prune to remove dead, dying, diseased or broken branches at any time of year.

 

Q: What if my trees are stressed or sick?
A: Young stressed or sickly trees shall be minimally pruned or not cut at all. Stressed trees of any age or size should be minimally pruned to prevent additional stress to the tree.

 

Q: What about trees that have never been pruned properly?
A: Crown thinning, reduction and restoration can be used on mature trees that have been neglected if it is thought that pruning will contribute to improved health or structure.

 

Q: Why should I care for my trees?
A: Trees don’t take care of themselves. In forests and natural areas trees can grow naturally without our help. However, in the city and suburbs they do need help staying healthy and beautiful.
