Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) September 21, 2011
Colin Camu, one of the owners of Leaf & Limb Tree Service, a tree care company serving residential and commercial clients in Raleigh, Cary, Durham, and surrounding areas of North Carolina, has recently demonstrated professional competency by successfully passing the Certified Arborist exam administered through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). This credential signifies that Colin Camu has a thorough working knowledge of tree care practices and standards within the arboriculture industry.
“Becoming a Certified Arborist has been a challenging process,” said Colin Camu, “but well worth the effort. I have learned many invaluable tree care skills. Too often companies without a Certified Arborist view all projects through the lens of either tree removal or tree trimming, when in fact the situation may require alternate tree care solutions through diagnosis and treatment.”
The ISA is a scientific and educational organization devoted to the dissemination of information in the care and preservation of trees. The purpose of the ISA Certification Program is to improve the level of knowledge and standards of practice within the tree care profession. It is designed to assist the public in identifying those professionals in arboriculture who have demonstrated, through a professionally developed exam and education program, a thorough knowledge of tree care practices.
Individuals who choose to earn the ISA Certified Arborist credential must complete an extensive education program and pass the ISA exam, which cover all aspects of arboriculture such as soil management, tree biology, tree identification & selection, safe working practices, pruning, diagnosis & treatment, tree installation, tree risk assessment, and much more. All Certified Arborists must have a minimum of three years of full-time experience working in the tree care industry. After passing the exam, individuals must adhere to ISA’s Code of Ethics. In addition, Certified Arborists must undergo regular re-certification and complete ongoing educational requirements. This ensures that Certified Arborists stay abreast of new industry developments and techniques, which maintains high standards for the Certified Arborist program.
