Certified Arborists Ensure Quality Work
An arborist report is the formal opinion of an arborist on the health and condition of a tree, or a report on the effects a site's conditions have on trees or the tree canopy.
Compiling arborist reports for the region centered around Portland, Oregon, is a full-time task. Our urban tree canopy is one of the nation’s most admired. That’s why the city of Portland justifiably touts its recognition as both a “Tree City” and as one of the “Best Cities for Urban Forests.”
Furthermore, the region's population continues to grow. In fact, Portland’s population is expected to increase by more than 40 percent by 2035, meaning that there will be a continuing if not heightened focus on preserving the city’s tree canopy while still providing enough living space for all those new residents.
Certified Arborists at Urban Forest Pro
Formal arborist reports can only be written by arborists who have been certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). The certification process consists of not only rigorous testing but yearly continuing education requirements.
All the arborists at Urban Forest Pro are certified by the ISA. Certification matters because it provides property owners and homeowners with the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your own personal tree canopy will be cherished and protected by the best and most experienced and knowledgeable professionals in the business.
Urban Forest Pro sends an ISA-certified arborist to every job site. In fact, we’re one of the only Portland tree service companies to make that guarantee. We offer a full suite of tree services, including tree pruning, tree planting, tree removal, and stump grinding.
Contact Urban Forest Pro today with any questions. We look forward to partnering with you to keep the Portland area’s urban tree canopy strong and healthy for many generations to come!
Arborist reports are used for a variety of purposes. The most common reason for an arborist report is to obtain a permit for the pruning or removal of a tree.
Other uses for an arborist report include (but are certainly not limited to:)
- Personal injury lawsuits
- Property development plans
- Property purchase negotiations
- Neighbor dispute resolution.
- Insurance claims
- Municipal condemnation of hazardous trees.
A certified arborist report must contain the name, signature, and certification number of the arborist issuing the report. Urban Forest Pro provides arborists reports for a fee, but the price is often waived if reports are commissioned alongside other tree services.
We have many certified arborists on staff, so turnaround for arborist reports is fast — often the same day! Call Urban Forest Pro now for some free advice on whether an arborist report is necessary for your particular situation.
Consulting arborists are registered through the American Society of Consulting Arborists (ASCA). This oversight means your arborist report will have been drafted by someone who is an authoritative tree expert. As the ASCA documents, a consulting arborist can provide the following services:
- Contract preparation
- Diagnosis of tree problems
- Diagnosis of landscape problems
- Expert witness and litigation
- Forensic investigations
- Tree risk assessments
- Municipal ordinance development
- Training and education
- And more!
