Hiring Tree Firms/Contractors

Firms engaged in the business of pruning, treating, or removing trees must obtain a business license prior to performing work. To ensure quality tree care throughout the City, Ordinance 425.060 D requires at least one person within the firm be certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (otherwise known as an ISA Certified Arborist.)

To view a list of City Licensed Tree Care Companies who currently have a license or have had one within the past year,

If you are a tree care company with an ISA certified member on staff and are looking to obtain a business license, please complete the following Arborist License Application.
