Why Hire A Certified Arborist?

Miller's Tree Service + ISA Certified Arborists


The right tool is needed for every job, and the right people should be the ones handling those tools. Miller’s Tree Service is proud to have 5 ISA Certified Arborists on the team, and the number of certifications is always growing.

An ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) Certification means the arborist you hired knows what they’re doing. The requirements call for at least three years of full-time tree care experience and have a formal education in horticulture, forestry, and landscape architecture. After passing the ISA exam, arborists are either required to continue their education or retake the exam every three years to maintain their certification.

It’s important we promote arboriculture in our community and educate tree workers to one day become ISA certified. Trees are an extremely important part of our ecosystem, which means knowledge about them is key. Beyond being able to remove a dead or dying tree, arborists assess every part of a tree to know how it should be cared for. Just because a tree isn’t falling over dead doesn’t mean it’s healthy; diseased trees can be invisible to the layman, but an educated arborist can tell if things are looking dire.

ISA Certified Arborists aren’t just know-it-alls though! That three year experience requirement means they are capable of any service needed to help or remove a tree. What equipment and tools to use, how many men and women a job would take, how the job should be approached; all of these observations are made by knowledgeable arborists, but Miller’s Tree Service arborists get their hands dirty too. Pruning, trimming, felling, a certified arborist can do it all.

The best tree service in Tallahassee also has some of the most hardworking and qualified arborists in the area. When your house is at risk, or you just want to beautify your property with excellent detail, Miller’s Tree Service should be your first choice. The knowledge, the work ethic, the ISA certified expertise, it’s all here.
