“We appreciate the time and attention that your Arbor Patrol team takes to maintain the overall health and appearance of the trees, bushes and general grounds. As they say, you can only have one first impression and the impression the grounds make on both residents and visitors alike is always positive thanks to your caring maintenance. Just as the trees continue to grow and blossom under your care, we hope our relationship with SavATree does the same.”William Toedter
“After four different unsatisfactory visits with so-called arborists, I found SavaTree... I was most impressed with the professionalism of David [my arborists] and his colleagues. They were most knowledgeable, fair with their assessment about what needed to be done, yet very attuned with what my concerns. I highly recommend them without any hesitation. In a field where there is an abundance of folks looking to take advantage of consumers, SavaTree, David and crew strike me as incredibly honest and proud arborists who do a fantastic job.”Debbie Durkin

“I am a new and highly satisfied customer of SavATree. For 50 years I have lived in the same house in the Greenhaven area, and in that time I have never had a tree company that gave me such fine service.”Joan Kleinbard
“It is always a pleasure working with SavATree as your company provides the best plant, tree and lawn health care that we have experienced at the Ives. Always professional, courteous and responsive to our needs, SavATree’s services have provided our employees and patrons with pleasant outdoor experiences in an insect free environment for several years.”Kathleen G.

“For over 14 years, I have entrusted the care of my trees, plants and orchard to SavATree. Their highly qualified arborists have exacting standards and understand how to maintain the health and form of the various species of trees on my property. I admire the artistic skill that goes into the pruning and love the colorful blossoms, fruits and foliage that flourish as a result of their impeccable care.”Martha Stewart
"Efficient, high quality, professional competence — all at a competitive sum. At first [Alison] Pottage won me over by her solid knowledge as an arborist, then the crew did their job to her specifications on our 60 to 70 foot oaks within a remarkable period of time -- and left the grounds quite clean.”

ISA Certified Arborists
All certified arborists, tree care professionals and tree service companies are not equal. The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) created a certified arborists program to ensure a high standard of professionalism in the tree care industry. Certified arborists complete a rigorous study and examination process that fruitions in a comprehensive exam. This voluntary educational program improves technical competency of participating personnel in the tree care industry. It also creates incentives for arborists to continue their professional development in the tree care industry no matter which tree service company they work for.
Tree Care Industry Customers Benefit From ISA Certification
Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) accreditation and ISA certification provide the public with a means to identify professionals in the tree care industry who have demonstrated a thorough knowledge of tree care practices, and affords the public the opportunity to make an informed selection of tree service companies based on the knowledge that is represented by the certification designation.
In order to qualify for certification, the arborist must have a minimum of three years experience in arboriculture. Acceptable experience includes practical use of knowledge involved in pruning, fertilization, installation and establishment, diagnosis and treatment of tree care problems, cabling and bracing, climbing and other services directly related to arboriculture. The requirement can also be satisfied with a 2-4 year degree in a related field and two years of practical experience in arboriculture or working for a tree service company. The exam is developed by the nations leading experts on tree care, and is divided up into 10 domains spanning from tree biology to practical applications. Upon completion of the exam, an arborist is initially certified for three years. In order to recertify, they must accumulate 30 continuing education units (CEU’s). This ensures that the arborist is keeping up to date with the latest research and techniques in the tree care industry.
Tree Service Companies With ISA Certified Arborists Are Your Best Choice
ISA certification is a challenging program that is designed to upgrade proficiency levels in arboriculture. The ISA made arborist certification on an international level a reality in 1992. To date, over 10,000 arborists worldwide have been certified. Because there are many tree care industry specialists who have little to no training at all, this certification conveys the arborist’s competence and commitment to professionalism in the tree care industry. From a tree service company’s perspective, certification credentials held by a job applicant provide a degree of assurance that the candidate is qualified.
Hiring an ISA certified arborist is not a guarantee, but it does indicate a core base of knowledge and experience in the tree care industry. SavATree has ISA certified arborists on staff and encourages all new arborists to pursue certification.
