About Us

Athens Arborist

Joseph Cox, owner and founder of Athens Arborist, LLC, grew up in the Athens, Georgia area.

Involved with professional tree care for nearly a decade, Joseph became an ISA Certified Arborist while living in New England. There he  began working for a large tree company where he gained tremendous experience climbing and cutting trees. He learned quickly that he not only loved being a climber but also that climbing is the essential way to carefully and properly remove, prune or maintain large trees.

ISA Certified Arborist

While gaining valuable work experience, Joseph began pursuing advanced education in arboriculture. After completing the necessary exams and tree climbing tests, he earned his International Society of Arboriculture membership and is proud to be a ISA Certified Arborist.

His keen knowledge of tree species and advanced arboriculture techniques ranges from tree removal, to tree preservation, and tree planting.

Athens Arborist adheres to the ANSI Standards of tree care practices. We believe how we perform our duties in a tree is important. Yes, one could get a ladder and just start chopping, but for Athens Arborist, it comes down to the controlled manner in which we operate; from the rigging or tying on to a limb, to lowering the limb — every tiny detail is carefully considered while following strict rules of safety.

It’s our promise to our customers, to ourselves and to our trees.
