Our crew are a fluid bunch. Some have worked for Limbwalker for years, others for a few months. Many of our crew are certified arborists, some are landscapers and others, just hard working tree climbers!

Arborist Certification is a voluntary program administered by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) to provide recognition of one’s professional knowledge by one’s peers. Certification is earned by passing 3 1/2-hour examination in ten parts covering topics such as Tree, Soil & Water Relations; Tree Nutrition and Fertilization; Identification and Selection, etc.
Candidates for the examination must have three or more years of experience in tree-related work, although academic study in forestry, horticulture, or other collateral field may substitute for one year. And, after becoming certified, the arborist must maintain a certain number of continuing education credits through approved seminars, course work, or workshops. To attain and continually maintain Arborist Certification affirms an individual’s technical competency and indicates an ongoing commitment to professional development.
