Tips on How To Select An Arborist To Care for Your Trees

  • When the job is too big for you to handle safely, it is time to call in a professional. Here are some tips for selecting an arborist to care for your trees: 
  • Hire someone who is bonded, licensed and insured. In Oregon, tree service companies must register with the state, but that is no guarantee of quality. 
  • Ask for references and get more than one bid. Take your time and select a company you know is reputable. 
  • Look for a Certified Arborist, someone who has passed the International Society of Arboriculture Certification Exam. 

Beware of “doorknockers.” Most companies have business cards, uniforms, truck signs, etc.
