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.
