Choosing a Tree Company

Trees are the most relevant part of your home landscape. Trees provide several benefits including cooling our homes, providing beauty and privacy. It's important to make the right choice when hiring a tree company to care for your trees. Most of us have listened to stories of improper care damaging trees in our neighbourhoods.

One way to provide your trees with the best care is to hire a Certified Arborist. Arborists are accredited by the International Society of Arboriculture. Certified Arborists must meet several requirements in order to obtain certification. These include fair experience, passing a rigorous test of arboricultural knowledge, agreeing to a code of ethics and maintaining certification through continuing education. You can also appoint the Bellevue tree service for getting the best tree services.

 To find a Certified Arborist in your area check the websites for the International Society of Arboriculture or the Tree Care Industry Association. Both provide information for finding Certified Arborists in your area.

If a tree company advertises that a certified arborist manages or is employed by the company the arborist certification number must be included in the advertisement. Beware of companies that do not display these numbers which can be checked on line for credibility. It is also important to find a company that will have a Certified Arborist on your property while the work is performed.
