We’ve worked hard to achieve this certification, and are proud to be recognized at that level.

Seacoast Tree Care’s Dan Mello recently earned the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Board Certified Master Arborist certification. This new certification places Mello in a group of less than two-percent of all internationally recognized arborists, according to the ISA.

“Achieving BCMA took a lot of hard work and effort,” Mello stated. “But it means we’re at the top of the industry, and that’s what our clients' expect.”

The Board Certified Master Arborist is the most distinguished certification in the industry. Before becoming BCMA certified, candidates must pass a BCMA exam, obtain points through work experience, and complete 60 educational units in land management, biology, environmental preservation, and risk assessment. The BCMA is considered the gold standard for advanced-level certification.

The ISA is the only internationally recognized certification program for arboriculture. Members are expected to adhere to the ISA's Code of Ethics, which outlines the safety, environmental, and professional responsibilities in planting and caring for trees. The ISA is committed to giving consumers the confidence to hire a professional and safe tree-care company. “We’ve worked hard to achieve this certification, and are proud to be recognized at that level,” stated Mello. “But honestly, this is about giving our customers the best level of service, and the certification helps them understand which companies are committed to always providing the highest level of work.”
