How To Receive Renewal Certification, Receive Resources and Network with Other Arborists in Indiana?
There is more to it than just tree care for us here at the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), an arborist is a professional who possesses the technical competence gained through experience and related training to provide for or supervise the management of trees and other woody plants in residential, commercial, and public landscapes.

There are no laws in Indiana that require anyone performing tree care work to be a licensed arborist, however, a tree worker who has not been properly trained as an arborist can pose risk, safety, and liability issues to homeowners. If you plan on having tree work done, check out this brochure about what you need to know before hiring a tree specialist.
