At Blooma Tree Experts, our team of ISA-Certified Arborists possesses extensive knowledge and adheres to industry best practices to ensure the health and well-being of your trees. To become certified, arborists must complete a period of tree work in the field, and then pass a knowledge-based exam created by the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture).

When you choose Blooma Tree Experts, our ISA-Certified Arborists will conduct a thorough inspection of your trees to assess their overall health and specific pruning needs. Please note - this initial assessment is complimentary & no pressure. Our arborists do not work on commission, they are just there to provide solid, science-based recommendations. Their evaluation enables them to develop a tailored tree pruning plan that caters to the unique requirements of your trees, promoting their optimal growth and vitality.

Tailored Tree Pruning Recommendations

Different tree species have varying growth patterns and structural characteristics. Our ISA-Certified Arborists have a deep understanding of a wide array of tree species commonly found in Seattle, including tall conifers, small fruit trees, and ornamental trees like Japanese Maples.

Different clients also have different objectives for their trees -- this is partnership between you & your arborist to develop & manage your trees the way that makes the most sense for you & your landscape. This is why we generally want you to be present to meet with our arborists to talk through your pruning & tree care objectives.
