Atlanta  Arborist


Who do you call when you need the services of a certified arborist? Atlanta’s leading tree professionals, 72 Tree, Seed & Land Company.

Tree workers and arborists are not the same thing. Anyone with a pickup truck and a chainsaw can start a tree service company. By contrast, arborists are highly trained professionals that bring immeasurable value to the table. To become certified, arborists must demonstrate extensive tree care experience, pass a comprehensive exam and partake in continuing education programs to stay abreast of industry standards and innovations.

Do you need a permit to remove a tree?

Because many municipalities have very strict tree ordinances, it is important to avoid cut-rate tree service providers, who may not fully understand local regulations. Instead, hire a tree service company owned and operated by an International Society of Arboriculture certified arborist. Atlanta, for example, has rigid permit requirements for tree removal, and the process will move along much more smoothly with the help of a certified arborist.

  • If the tree is on city-owned property or has a diameter larger than 6 inches, you must work with a City of Atlanta Arborist to obtain a permit for tree removal.
  • Our industry experience allows us to help you navigate the permitting process.
  • 72 Tree operates in 100% compliance with the city of Atlanta arborist division’s requirements.
  • Many other cities in the metro Atlanta area have tree ordinances or “net loss of trees” policies, including Johns Creek, Dunwoody, Decatur, Roswell and others.
