In Colorado, arborists do not have to be licensed. That means it’s really up to you to find out if an arborist is qualified and what sort of certifications that they possess.
While the state doesn’t require a license, Denver and many other towns in Colorado do require a license to work with trees within their city limits. If you live in the City of Denver or surrounding suburbs, you can check the Denver Forestry website for a list of licensed tree contractors.
Also the ISA website is another source of background information for arborists that you’re considering.
Qualified Colorado Arborists
An arborist is an advocate for your trees. We strive for excellence and to help ensure that the arborist is current we require at least 30 hours of continuing education units (CEU) every 3 years.
Two tree organizations, the American Society of Consulting Arborists (ASCA) and the International Society of Arboriculture – Rocky Mountain Chapter (ISA) are leaders in certifying arborists. Both associations work toward the professional development of their members, and the overall advancement of the tree industry. Below is a brief description of these organizations.
The American Society of Consulting Arborists (ASCA) was developed to preserve the highest standards of performance in the field of arboricultural consulting. ASCA members are experienced in legal, environmental and regulatory arenas in addition to arboricultural areas. ASCA Consulting arborists serve as independent resources, rendering professional and credible opinions when they are enlisted as experts by the many industries they serve.
The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) has been working hard with their members to raise the standard of professional tree care. Charged with the mission of Research and Education, ISA members are equipped with the latest in science-based tree care information.
Typically a consulting arborist is called into provide an appraisal for an insurance claim, provided a tree planting and species recommendation for planned communities or to analyze a sick tree.
We offer a free evaluation of trees which amounts to free consulting. This takes 30 min. and does not include any written report.
However if the arborist identifies any work that needs to be done, such as a tree that needs to be trimmed or a cultural treatment such as fertilization, they will provide a hand written estimate for you.
Identifying the species and ideally the varietal or in other words the sub species is the first job of a certified arborist.
