We are Fully Licensed & Insured
Our workers are protected, but more importantly, we take care of your property as if it were our own. Tree work is dangerous, but we take precautions with your property and our personal safety. It is worth it! Check us out on the Oregon CCB website here #195616. Some of our competitors claim to be licensed, bonded, and insured, but then fail to carry workmen's comp insurance on their workers. This is probably one of the most likely things to go wrong on a job site. It is a loophole in the contractor regulations that allow this, so make sure you don't get caught holding the bag for a worker's injury and request a personally addressed workmen's comp certificate for any tree service you hire.
Experience is Important
Pruning is a process that takes time to master. Masterful pruning techniques ensure every cut made directs growth. For an arborist to truly understand the impact of his work, he must have pruned the same tree multiple times. This allows him to see how the tree reacts to his work. It takes over 6 years for enough time to have passed for an arborist to have accomplished this. All of our arborists have met or exceeded this experience level. Our arborists are also trained in the latest high-climbing techniques for safe and damage-free tree removals no matter the size or predicament of the tree and are either ISA Certified or ISA Board Certified Master Arborists in Portland.
We use the Best Equipment and Materials
We do this to give you the best possible results, but it's the eye of the arborist that does more work than both of his hands. That is why every arborist at this company is an International Society of Arboriculture Certified Arborist. You can be sure at Urban Forest Pro that your trees are in the hands of an expert. A lot of our competitors will advertise certified arborists, but in reality, only the owner or one person on the tree crew is really a certified arborist.
