Is Tree Care Really a Profession?
Many people view tree workers as unskilled laborers. This couldn’t be further from the truth for many arborists in the field! Arborists have opportunities to earn certifications, credentials and licenses in areas such as safety, electrical hazards awareness, pesticides, chainsaw use, chipper use, crane operation and more. Similar to many other professions, continuing professional education is an important aspect of this industry… arborists never stop learning!
