Westchester Tree Life are proudly certified arborists of the International Society of Arboriculture ! The International Society of Arbiculture promotes the professional practice of arboriculture through research, technology, and education.


The ISA also fosters a greater worldwide awareness of the benefits of trees! Additionally, most cities in Minnesota require arborists to be licensed by the respective city if the company wishes to perform tree work within the city limits.

Licensing only means that the various tree care companies have paid an annual licensing fee and have shown proof of insurance.

Licensing in Minnesota does not imply proficiency.

To that end, many communities are requiring that tree care companies working on publicly-owned trees employ ISA Certified Arborists in addition to registering with the community as a licensed tree care company.


An arborist is an individual who is trained in the science of plants, especially trees, as well as how to care for, plant and maintain them.


ISA arborist certification is a voluntary process to document knowledge of trees and their care.


This certification is not mandated by law and is self-regulated by the administration of the International Society of Arboriculture.

Ten years ago I started working for the City of San Jose I was struck by the lack of Urban & Community Forest (U&CF) programs in the Bay Area and all of California.

     Attending the Municipal Forestry Institute opened my eyes to the few, but well-developed U&CF programs in the US and Canada.

    Thirty years ago, at the urging of a dedicated group of citizens, Fairfax County enacted a Tree Preservation and Planting Ordinance, one of the first local ordinances in the nation to require the protection and preservation of existing tree cover during the land development and construction processes.

    The county also established an Office of the County Arborist to administer the new ordinance and a Tree Commission, appointed by the Board of Supervisors, to represent the interests of the public in tree-related matters.

      Comparison Of Portable And Truck Mount Carpet Cleaning Machines

      Carpet pros do a more thorough job than you can, but hiring a pro is expensive.


      So the next-best approach is to alternate between DIY and pro cleanings.

      DIY “steam”-cleaning machines can be effective if you understand how to use them and take the time to clean your carpet carefully.

      When you add everything up, it's almost always more cost effective to have your carpet professionally cleaned.

      You'll save time from driving to and from the store, the drying process will be much more efficient, and you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that your carpet will look and feel fresh for a much longer period of time.


      The cleanliness that a portable carpet cleaning machine can attain compared to trained technicians with professional equipment is quite a big difference.

      Up until a few weeks ago, the top of the tree portables were triple vac.


      In reality, despite what manufacturers may claim, their performance at the wand were all pretty damn close.

      aluminum fence in Galloway OH

      So close in fact that from performance alone, a technician would not know which was the better.

      Some people, therefore, would make their machine purchase based more on price or aesthetics rather than engineering.
