Committed To Excellence Through Knowledge

Our team of professionals achieve licenses and certifications that are rare in the industry. We are extremely proud of our employees’ commitment to providing the best possible care for your trees, lawn, and plants.

Our professionally-trained arborists are also fully bonded and insured, and we have TCIA Accredited and ISA Certified Arborists on your local tree care team.

Below are some of the licenses and certifications of our staff members.

International Society of Arboriculture Qualifications

ISA Certified Arborists®

ISA Certified Arborists must have experience in arboriculture and also pass an examination that assesses thorough competency in and knowledge of the six domains of tree care practices: tree biology; identification and selection; installation and establishment; soil management; pruning, diagnosis, tree protection; and tree risk management. An ISA Certified Arborist must take continuing education credits in order to maintain certification and keep abreast of new technologies.

ISA TRAQ Qualified

The ISA TRAQ program educates and trains arborists in the fundamentals and standards of tree risk assessment. The qualifications promote the safety of people and property and gives the arborists the knowledge to provide tree owners with information which allows them to make informed decisions about the trees on their property.

Davey completed a rigorous application and audit process to not only earn TCIA accreditation, but also to better serve our clients. Accredited companies, like Davey, represent the most credible sources for professional service. By choosing Davey, you have selected a tree service provider that is focused on your needs.


Certified Treecare Safety Professional

The Certified Treecare Safety Professional (CTSP) program is the only safety credentialing program in the industry. Additional education affords an arborist the opportunity to become a safety expert in the tree care industry, preventing accidents, providing hazard and incident control and potentially saving lives. Once qualified, applicants must complete a core competencies study guide and attend and complete the CTSP Advanced Safety/Behavioral Training Workshop. Re-certification credits in continuing education are required to maintain the CTSP designation. 

Commercial Pesticide Technicians & Applicators

As leaders in our industry, we have Certified Technicians (CT) and/or Certified Commercial Pesticide Applicators (CCPA) licensed to apply plant health care materials in both New York and New Jersey. To become a CT, a candidate must complete a minimum of 8 hours training before going into the field as an apprentice. After either completing a minimum of two years experience as an apprentice or obtaining a related college degree, candidates must complete a thirty-hour training course and pass core and category competency exams. Only after years more experience, training and testing can CTs achieve the designation of CCPA. We help our CTs and CCPAs achieve and maintain their accreditations by offering training courses and continuing education credits.

New Jersey Certified Fertilizer Applicator: The state of New Jersey requires certification of fertilizer applicators so that certain standards are met when fertilizer is applied to turf. Arborists become certified by learning the proper use and calibration of fertilizer and educating themselves in the best management practices and understanding of appropriate, environmentally safe use of applications.

New York and New Jersey Certified Pesticide Applicator: New York and New Jersey require that a Certified Pesticide Applicator License be obtained if you apply pesticides to a property. The certification requires a definitive level of competency with regards to the safe use of pesticides, knowledge of potential hazards involved, an understanding of pest management control, and comprehension of applicable State and Federal pesticide laws and safety regulations.

Certified Nursery & Landscape Professionals

Because we care for trees, shrubs and turf, we also employ Certified Nursery and Landscape Professionals (CNLP). In order to qualify for this certification, candidates must have graduated from a recognized 2 or 4 year college with a degree in a horticultural-related field, or must have completed three years experience in the horticultural industry. Candidates must pass a written exam (on soils and fertilizers, plant function and nomenclature, plant identification, plant pest problems, landscape establishment and maintenance, grading and drainage, and hard-scapes) as well as successfully identify both the scientific and common genus and species of live plant specimens.

Registered Consulting Arborists

An arborist must prove both longevity and extensive knowledge of trees before even being considered for membership in the American Society of Consulting Arborists (ASCA). Applicants must prove their qualifications in the form of continued education and experience before attending the required week-long training academy, passing a rigorous exam, and successfully submitting and passing three reports that meet strict professional review standards. Those with Registered Consulting Arborist® (RCA) status have chosen to take their career even higher by earning that designation.

A Consulting Arborist must face the most challenging situations that require experience in arboriculture and display expertise in the practical, ethical and objective role of consultant. Consulting Arborists are the preeminent authorities on matters related to trees—ensuring the safety, health, and preservation of trees in our natural surroundings.
