In our story last week entitled “Now is the time to defend your hometown from live oak killers” we incorrectly identified Tom Stephan as an “arborist.”
He is a former certified arborist. As Stephan informed The Times- Advocate: “I must mention that I mentioned to the writer during the interview that I am a FORMER certified arborist. The ISA www.isa- arbor.com/ takes dim view of persons claiming to be certified when the are not, or certification is in arrears as is mine.”
We regret the error.
