What is an arborist?

An arborist is a certified and trained professional who specializes in improving and sustaining the health and appearance of individual trees and shrubs. An arborist understands and appreciates the value of trees and shrubs and is trained to inspect them effectively to identify causes of plant problems. An arborist is also a skilled technician who can plant trees and shrubs, treat to resolve or prevent damage, remove trees and shrubs and operate trade-specific equipment and tools.

The most competent arborists receive certification by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), an international professional organization that promotes the professional practice of arboriculture through research, technology, and education.
