TRAQ

Tree Risk Assessment Qualification

"TRAQ is an ISA qualification program that trains arborists how to use the methodologies outlined in the ISA Best Management Practices for Tree Risk Assessment. This qualification promotes the safety of people and property by providing a standardized and systematic process for assessing tree risk. The results of a tree risk assessment can provide tree owners and risk managers with the information to make informed decisions to enhance tree benefits, health, and longevity." - ISA

CERTIFIED TREECARE SAFETY PROFESSIONAL

Russell Tree Experts also has multiple CTSP Arborists on staff! Here's a quote from the Treecare Industry Association describes this credential:

"More than a straightforward “safety trainer” credentialing program, CTSP teaches safety professionals strategies and tactics for changing the very culture of their organization. A CTSP acts as a safety “coach,” working to develop and nurture a culture of safety. The program provides the CTSP with a well-rounded education in safety concepts, plus the tools to effectively communicate these concepts." -TCIA

EHAP

Electrical Hazards Awareness Program

Russell Tree Experts arborists are certified in the Electrical Hazards Awareness Program (EHAP), a program established by the TCIA to train people of the hazards when working near power and lines and electrical equipment.
