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. 

A good arborist rarely recommends topping, and should try to talk you out of it if you ask to have it done. Avoid tree topping at all costs. 

When pruning trees, climbers should not use spurs in order to prevent damage to the bark.
