With the Urban Forest Pro blog, the certified arborists on our staff – and every arborist on our staff is certified by the International Society of Arboriculture – will help create content on just about every conceivable topic related to information on tree care and tree service. This includes, of course, design – a topic about which the arborists at UFP will have much to say. Many people in Portland and Vancouver are looking for help with landscape design, tree pruning, and other aspects of what might be labeled “green design.” They’re looking for help and information on tree permits, tree relocation, view enhancements and other aspects of design. At Urban Forest Pro, our ISA-certified arborists can help, and the UFP blog will be the medium through which they’ll provide that assistance. There’s so much to consider when it comes to preparing for landscape designs or redesigns. For example, there are numerous safety considerations and government regulations on tree care. Plus, UFP arborists are trained to use specialized tools and equipment to climb and cut trees. This process usually involves rigging harnesses and setting up the lift equipment. This can be an arduous and difficult task, which is why we always recommend consulting with an arborist before starting on tree design work of this magnitude.
