Santigie "Tigie" Kabia

Sales Consultant / ISA Certified Arborist

Hello Charlotte Tree Lovers! My name is Santigie Kabia, but I'm most commonly known as "Tig" or "Tigie". I was born and raised in Silver Spring, MD and began my career in arboriculture in 2004 after earning an Associate's Degree in Forestry. I worked for 10 years servicing trees in the Annapolis, MD area, focusing most of my attention on insect and disease management. I moved my family of four to Charlotte in 2014 to manage Heartwood's Plant Health Care Division and began consulting for Heartwood in 2015. I am an ISA Certified Arborist & Municipal Specialist, ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualified (TRAQ), a NC Licensed Landscape Contractor, a NC/SC Pesticide Applicator, and an International CTH "Certified Tree-Hugger". I've discretely named many trees I've encountered over the years (including many here in Charlotte) and strongly encourage anyone to name the trees they love and to plant more!  

Tig's favorite tree is the American Beech.
