Licensed and Bonded Companies

When preparing to overhaul a lawn, landscapers take in the complete topography of the space. Wright manufactures quality mowers, known for their maneuverability and durability, which are ready to take on tougher terrains. However, a mower can't quite make it over the maple or birch in your yard. Choosing a local arborist who is trained in caring for, planting, and maintaining trees is an important step in your lawn care maintenance.


Why do I need an arborist?

Think of an arborist as a tree doctor; we see physicians at the beginning and end of life, during times of illness and also as preventative measures. An arborist could be consulted during the same stages of a tree's life:

  • Tree Pruning and Planting
  • Tree Removal
  • Tree Care after severe weather
  • Lightning Protection
  • Aeration

Also, tree care maintenance can be dangerous work. Hiring a well-trained arborist will not only save you money, but also provide peace-of-mind knowing that a professional is over-seeing all aspects of the job.

What should I look for in an arborist?

When searching for a professionally licensed, bonded and insured arborist, consider the following:

  • Certification: Your arborist should hold an International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certification. This certification ranges in credentials, but all certifications require ongoing education classes and standardized comprehensive exams. ISA-certified means your arborist is up-to-date on procedures and well-versed in tree care maintenance.
  • Advertisement: When checking out advertisements for arborists, look for accreditation logos, such as The Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) and International Society of Arboriculture (ISA)
  • Insurance: Make sure that your preferred arborist has insurance to cover personal and property damage and worker’s compensation. Hiring an uninsured arborist means you are liable for any injuries that occur on the job.
  • References & Estimates: Always check references and ask for estimates. This will tell you a lot about your arborists before committing to a contract.

It's best to find a local arborist; visit the ISA website for help finding a certified and insured arborist in your area. Though our mowers don't run down trees, our line of quality standing mowers will allow you to safely and efficiently maneuver around your lawn.
