    What is your objective : trimming,phc,planting,removal etc. A good CA should display an attitude of either knowing your solution or how to find it and he should be asking you questions of the tree & landscape history. Please remember there are many different arborist fields of expertise some have more to do in expert witness in courts,others in the utility industry,some branch out into forestry sustaining. A select few worked in the field for years and decided to learn about the pressurized vessels they wounded daily for years as retribution to their evils. Some arborists never climbed a tree in their life but spent a good deal of time in academics and are consultants. All have purpose all can be good depending on the desired result.
