Why Hire a Certified Arborist?

Insight and Advice from Certified Arborists in MN

When choosing a tree trimming or tree removal service to care for or remove a tree on your property, there are many factors to consider. Do they have the skills needed to get the job done? Are they equipped to handle your needs? Are they insured? At Kraft Tree Service, we can answer a resounding yes to all of these questions! But, we offer something many MN arborists and tree care specialists do not offer – arborists that are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture.

What is a Certified Arborist?

To become a Certified Arborist, an individual must be tested and approved by the International Society of Arboriculture. To gain certification, the arborist must possess the skills and knowledge to perform services in the tree care industry, and must have knowledge of all facets of the industry. A Certified Arborist must also continually study topics within the industry to retain certification. Certified Arborist studies include:
  • Tree Biology
  • Tree Identification
  • Pest, Disease and Disorder Identification
  • Proper Pruning Techniques
  • Safety Requirements
  • Risk Assessment

Why hire a Certified Arborist?

While any individual can claim to have the knowledge to care for or safely remove a tree, a Certified Arborist has added insight that comes only with years of education. A Certified Arborist must also adhere to a strict code of ethics set forth by the International Society of Arboriculture. This means that you will always have honest, straight forward and positive experiences with our Kraft Tree Service arborists.
