We have been inspecting the Treasure Valley’s trees for 2+ decades now, so there isn’t much we haven’t seen. At Timmy’s Tree Service, part of our job is to relay what the tree tells us to our customers. By having level 2 TRAQ Certification, we can easily do just that.

A considerable benefit of Risk Management is the ability to save our customers money via prior knowledge of locations, species, and past seasons of trouble with specific cultivars.

There are many cases when a customer wants to perform a particular service to a tree where I lead them away, knowing the consequences of what they wanted to be done. In the long run, we save our customers a lot of time, money, and TREES.

A: The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) offers TRAQ as an instructor-led credential that demonstrates professional knowledge in tree risk assessment through participation in a training course and passing its accompanying exam. The TRAQ program offers tree care professionals the opportunity to expand their understanding of the fundamentals of tree risk assessment. This program teaches a standardized, systematic process for assessing tree risk and providing information to tree owners and risk managers for making informed decisions that will promote people’s and property’s safety and enhance tree benefits, health, and longevity.
