Katy Bigelow, Arborist LLC
ISA Certified Consulting and Climbing Arborist
I am an ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) Certified Arborist who also holds a Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ). I am also a registered consulting arborist through ASCA, the American Society of Consulting Arborists. I am one of the few consulting arborists who can safely climb a tree for inspection if necessary.
Tree risk assessment is used to determine and promote the safety of people and property by providing a standardized and systematic process for assessing tree risk. The results of a tree risk assessment can provide tree owners and risk managers with information to make informed decisions to enhance tree benefits, health, and longevity. Since I am independent of a tree service you can be sure the information you receive is not based on selling you more services.
