What is a Consulting Arborist?
Here is an explanation of what a consulting arborist is, taken from the main page on the American Society of Consulting Arborists website. Please click on the link to learn more. “Consulting Arborists are the authoritative experts on trees and bring an objective, comprehensive viewpoint to their clients—ensuring the safety, health, and preservation of trees. Servicing a wide variety of clients, including property owners, municipalities, contractors, attorneys, insurance professionals, landscape architects, developers, engineers, other arborists, and more” https://www.asca-consultants.org/page/WhatisCA
As a consulting arborist, I am a shepherd of the trees, and I must protect my flock. I strive to hold myself as a standard-setter and authoritative expert for trees. Though I do not currently hold the ASCA Registered Consulting Arborist credential, I still maintain the standards and hold the ethics as a Registered Consulting Arborist from now until I obtain my registered designation.
