John Huddleston

ISA Board Certified Master Arborist®


ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualified

ASCA Registered Consulting Arborist #625

John Huddleston has been dedicated to the care and study of trees since 2002, when his home town of Idyllwild, CA,  experienced the beginning of a devastating pine bark beetle epidemic that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of  pine trees. After becoming skilled in the removal of these giant trees, (sometimes growing through the middles of people’s homes!) John became a Certified Arborist in 2006, in hopes of learning how to preserve some of them for the future. John has been to several hurricane relief efforts, starting in 2003, and has attained the ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualification. In 2015, John joined less than 600 professionals, worldwide, as a Board Certified Master Arborist through the International Society of Arboriculture. More recently, in 2017, John became a Registered Consulting Arborist, through the American Society of Consulting Arborists, joining the less than 80 individuals, worldwide, to hold both BCMA and RCA credentials simultaneously. Although his diverse expertise has taken him all over the country, outbreaks of disease and invasive insects called him back home to Idyllwild, CA, where he has based his company, Precision Tree Experts
