Talking Trees: How to Hire an Arborist or Tree Service Provider

In this episode of Talking Trees, Davey Expert and ISA Certified Arborist Jim Houston talks about why it's critical to ensure the arborist you've hired is well trained and follows the highest industry standards.

Some key questions to ask when hiring an arborist are: 

1. Are they TCIA Accredited? 
2. Do they have ISA Certified Arborists on staff?
3. Are they licensed and insured?
4. Do they follow applicable safety standards? 
5. Can they explain the work to you?

Contact your local ISA certified arborist for all of your tree care questions and concerns.
