Actually that is a personal business decision that only the OP can make. Stating that spending $20k on a degree would be fool hearty is really inaccurate considering the fact that most Certified Arborist are in fact college educated with degrees. The shear amount of information necessary to become a Certified Arborist requires far more than taking an ISA test.
