What is a consulting arborist?

A consulting arborist is a professional who provides a comprehensive, objective viewpoint to the diagnosis, appraisal, and evaluation of arboricultural issues.

Consulting arborists have been trained in tree-related legal, commercial, and regulatory issues in order to render a "big picture" view of issues at hand.

When consulting services are applied to legal or insurance matters, the consulting arborist serves as an independent observer with no ulterior motives or conflicts of interest in providing his or her professional opinion.

A consulting arborist uses a planned (scientific) method to problem-solving, and when appropriate, submits a technical report of his findings.
