Jason Eaton, of Pomfret, senior manager and ISA certified arborist at Chippers, recently earned the International Society of Arboriculture Tree Risk Assessment Qualification credential by successfully completing the two-day course administered by the organization and passing an exam that includes both a written and field component. Eaton has been with Chippers since 1996. The credentialing program is a voluntary program designed to increase the standard of practice and safety in the tree care industry and to promote the professional development of individual arborists. To maintain their qualification, arborists must complete the course and exam every five years.
