The ISA is the International Society of Arboriculture. Credentials are what set any professional apart from his or her competition. A list of credentials can help assure a customer that you are qualified, and attaining credentials keeps you on top of your game. For these reasons McKinley & Associates’ arborists are certified members of the ISA.
In order to become a certified arborist a person must be knowledgeable in all the fields of arboriculture. Before earning your ISA certification an arborist must have over three years of full time work experience and/or a degree in arboriculture, forestry, landscape architecture, or horticulture from an accredited education institution (college with accreditation). William McKinley has a degree in forestry and almost 30 years of full-time work experience in the field of arboriculture.
The ISA Code of Ethics also helps establish credibility amount customers, providing peace of mine that the arborist they are hiring abides by industry standards of best practices.
Aside from providing certification, the ISA also provides opportunities for furthering your education, networking, and expanding your knowledge of arboriculture. William McKinley makes it a point to attend ISA conferences, so that he is on top of new developments within the industry.
