Effective on January 1, 2018, “Tree resource evaluations and preservation plans shall be prepared by a licensed Landscape Architect, a professional Forester registered with the State of Oklahoma, an [International Society of Arboriculture] ISA Certified arborist, or other as pre-approved by the Urban Forestry Commission.” Individuals who would like to be placed on the list of approved professionals must submit the Tree Resource Evaluation/Tree Preservation Plan Professional Application and supporting materials to include two work samples (as described on the application form).
This approval process is for individuals, rather than businesses. If there are multiple designers at a business who are interested in becoming approved, they must apply individually.
• Work samples as described on the application form must be provided to Urban Forestry prior to scheduling a review by the Urban Forestry Commission. These materials may be provided through one of the submission methods listed below. If providing digital files, accepted formats include PDF and JPEG.
