Like all living things, trees need to be cared for and maintained, especially when they’re in an urban environment like Logan, Utah. Tree care can be incredibly dangerous, even for an ISA certified arborist. Nonetheless, many DIY homeowners attempt to prune or removed dead trees, often with disastrous results. The work of a certified arborist requires extensive knowledge of arboriculture and the physicality of an athlete.
Unfortunately, a common misconception of a tree care worker is that they are an unskilled laborer. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. Not only does a certified arborist possess the knowledge needed to properly care for a tree but they uphold and practice important safety requirements. A certified arborist is trained in the disciplines of physics, chainsaw safety, geometry, and proper crane operation. Simply put, being unskilled is not an option.
As tree care professionals, we work high above the ground and use sharp tools. That is why continued education is so important to our industry. Continuing education for ISA certification is our commitment to safe tree care practice and ethical service. While most people think an arborist only removes dead trees, we are often saving them and helping the environment in the process.
Tree Care Job Diversity
The tree care industry is notorious for long hours, especially after hard storms. However, the diversity of the job is what the certified arborists at Mountain West Arbor Care love the most. Close your eyes, and imagine scaling a grand 400-year-old oak tree to ensure its survival on a Monday, then testing yourself physically and mentally in the technique of hazardous tree removal on Tuesday. Additionally, the type of people we get to meet and interact with on a daily basis are incredible. As certified arborists, we enjoy providing homeowners with peace of mind when it comes to taking care of their trees.
