Colin Owen, a professional landscape architect with SCJ Alliance, is now an ISA-certified arborist.

Colin has a Landscape Architecture degree from the University of Georgia and is also a Master Gardener. His 15 years of experience includes fieldwork assessing tree species and vegetation conditions, creating landscape architecture designs, and designing landscape mitigation plans, from stream restoration plantings to native vegetation replacement.

“Having a certified arborist as part of the SCJ team adds even more value for our clients,” shares SCJ President Jean Carr. “Easy access to Colin’s expertise in-house enhances what we can offer for their projects.”

To earn this credential from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), Colin had to demonstrate his knowledge in all aspects of arboriculture, have a related degree and years of work experience, and take a comprehensive final certification exam.
