The tree care industry is one of the most dangerous industries in the world, yet the most vital industry in sustaining our life here on Earth. We feel it is important that those who care for our trees have the proper credentials to do so.

Trees are living, breathing entities. You wouldn't hire an unqualified, unlicensed person to diagnose your health issues, prescribe you medication, and/or perform surgery. The tree care industry should be held to the same standard.

Tree care is comprised of so many different factors that just owning a chainsaw and some basic tools is not nearly enough to provide the care that our trees need. Allowing untrained, uneducated individuals, and businesses to perform work on our trees is putting their lives and our trees lives in danger. 

So we are asking our government to please require that only trained professionals with credentials under the International Society of Arboriculture(ISA) maintain our trees. Certfied arborists within the ISA pride themselves on not just being acrobats swinging through trees but also on being highly educated in modern tree care.

Requiring our trees to be maintained by true professionals or under supervision of ISA certified arborists will minimize death and injuries to both humans and trees. If you are serious about sustaining our planet and pushing the industry in the right direction, sign this petition.
