Don't forget ASCA if you are interested in consultancy.
If providing a professional opinion about a tree where any element of or type 
of risk is involved (not just safety) then PI insurance is obligatory.

Wayne, I have no idea what you are continually asking about.  If you wish to 
understand the state of the industry you need to understand what the industry 
standards are.  In North America the standard for training and knowledge is 
set by the ISA Certified Arborist designation.  Get the study guide and find 
out what the ISA expects a person to know and what the passing of the exam 
represents.

From ISA " ISA Certification is a voluntary program that tests and certifies 
your achievement of a professional level of knowledge and skill in the field 
of arboriculture. When you become an ISA Certified Arborist®, you are 
recognized by your peers and the public as a tree care professional who has 
attained a generally-accepted level of knowledge in areas such as tree 
biology, diagnosis, maintenance practices, safety, and other subject and 
practice areas within the tree care profession as identified through 
periodic job task analyses. Hiring a Certified Arborist provides tree owners 
and government decision makers the opportunity to become better informed 
about proper tree care and their selection of services based on the 
expertise represented by your credential."

How about this one:

All the rain from this previous week could be wreaking havoc on your trees.

Arborists say too much rain can essentially bring down trees.

_______ with ______ ____ Tree Service in ______ says the saturated 
ground prevents the necessary oxygen from getting into the soil.

He suggests after a big rain to rake the debris below a tree, have it 
professionally fertilized, and trim any unhealthy limbs.

____ expects he'll get calls for those services after Tuesday’s sunny day.

“We normally get those calls regardless especially when you have the 
pretty days,” ____ said. “People get outside and actually get the 
chance to look up and see the broken limbs. That's usually the calls 
we get, then we go out and find the other problems.”

All this rain can set the groundwork for your tree to fall over once 
strong spring storms come.


Thanks for your comments,

Wayne

Doesn't seem too controversial Wayne. Keep your eyes open and seek 
further advice. In this country I'd anticipate some advice about 
from whom Joe and Joanna Public should be taking advice but 
otherwise no
grievances.
