A Certified Arborist is a Specialist in the Care of Trees:

 A Certified Arborist is a specialist in the art and science of tree care. A Certified Arborist must have at least five years of experience working in the field before they qualify to be rigorously tested. Once certification has been achieved Arborists are required to maintain current CEUs (current education units) from the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture ) which ensures the constant and progressive education of your tree care professional.

(To check ISA credentials:  Our Certified Arborist # WE-8897A ) We are also licensed timber operators or "LTOs". We have been licensed under the Forest Practice Act Law and are authorized to conduct forest tree cutting and removal operations. LTOs must understand and comply with all laws relating to such tree cutting or removal. click here for LTO info

Proper Tree Care by a Skilled Professional:

Proper tree care is an important investment that can lead to substantial returns. Properly cared for trees are attractive and can elevate the value of your property and even make your home more enjoyable to live in. Inversely, poorly cared for trees are unsightly and prove to be a significant liability, especially when it comes to the large trees of our region weathering our coastal winds. Our community has some of the largest trees in the world and they can be dangerous to remove as well as being important to preserve. 

How We are Set Apart: 

 Erik Tjossem of Cutting Edge Tree Service is one of the few Certified Abrorists in the Humboldt County! Not to be confused with "qualified arborist" (a trick under-qualified companies use to trick you).
This ensures superior standards in tree care, supporting our promise to deliver outstanding results that you deserve! We specialize in Hazardous tree removal, proper tree pruning, tree lifting, tree thinning, tree falling, storm damaged trees, building site readiness, nicely trimmed hedges, fire hazard reduction and anything else your trees may need!  We are fully licensed, bonded and insured. We also strive for the most competitive rates
around. We ABSOLUTELY will not sell you a service you don't need. We will take the time to discuss with you the most reasonable course of action for preserving and enhancing the health of your trees, or if removal is necessary, we will complete the task safely and efficiently. 

"We can complain that the rose bush has thorns, or rejoice that the thorn bush has roses!"

At Your Service.
