Are you interested in becoming a certified Arborist? Foresters with the University
of Arkansas' Division of Agriculture work closely with the Arkansas Urban Forestry Council (AUFC) and other organizations to design and deliver workshops that will help you
meet your continuing education requirements. The AUFC also provides information about
the International Society of Arboriculture and their Certified Arborist program.
An Arborist is someone who specializes in urban or community forest management. They
often have forestry degrees or specialized training. Certification is one way to
demonstrate a certain level of professionalism.
Certification is a voluntary program providing recognition of one's professional knowledge
by one's peers. International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborist recognition
is given by the ISA to those who:
Certification builds an individual's self-image. By studying for and passing the
exam, individuals reaffirm to themselves and their peers a thorough knowledge and
dedication to arboriculture. Certification affords the public and those in government
the opportunity to make an informed selection of services based on the knowledge which
is represented by the Certification designation. The process of becoming Certified
and maintaining the designation provides incentives to the individual to continue
his/her on-going professional development. Certification is a tool to help the employer
both in training their personnel and selecting new employees.
To find a certified Arborist in your area, go to http://www.isa-arbor.com/ to search by zip code.
