Arborilogical Services, Inc. has supported the following organizations since shortly after our inception in 1981 with several consulting arborists serving as president, board member, and chair for the Texas Tree Climbing Competition, among many other leadership roles. We do our part to support our industry by providing leadership, guidance, volunteer, and financial support.
International Society of Arboriculture, Texas Chapter
Most all professional arborists are members of the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and all of our consulting arborists are members of the organization. Mr. Kevin Bassett, Mr. Steve Houser, and Mr. Russell Peters are all lifetime members. ISA has regional chapters around the world with the statewide organization being the International Society of Arboriculture, Texas Chapter.
Tree Care Industry Association
The other primary organization supported by most all professional tree care firms is the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA). The original name of TCIA was the National Arborist Association until the group expanded to an international role.
ISA Oak Wilt Certification
A number of years ago, the International Society of Arboriculture, Texas Chapter established a certification for those properly trained in managing Oak Wilt, a very deadly pathogen found in many parts of Texas. Since one of our Plant Pathologists, Mr. Russell Peters, completed his thesis on Oak Wilt for his Master's Degree and because we have been managing the disease for over 25 years, our arborists are well trained on the subject.
