Why Hire an Arborist?

Specialized care for your trees is incredibly important — and that’s exactly what an arborist provides.

Why hire an arborist? Consider what trees provide at your home or other property: shade, beauty, definition and more. Now consider just how difficult it is to replace your trees. It can take years and sometimes even decades to plant and grow a tree to match what you already have.

When your trees are facing disease, advanced maintenance needs, and other challenges, you want a specialist so nothing’s left to chance.

What are Arborists?

An arborist is an expert on trees — an individual trained in how to plant, maintain and generally care for all types of trees.

The best arborists you can find are certified arborists. They have voluntarily gone through an education and testing process that documents their knowledge. When you choose a certified professional for arborist tree services, you're choosing someone who holds an advanced level of knowledge and skill in how to care for trees.





The Benefits of Hiring an Arborist

What are the benefits of hiring an arborist? Consider first and foremost that trees are significant assets that can help increase the value of your home or property. When you hire an arborist, you are protecting your investment in real estate and enhancing its value.

But that’s not all an arborist provides. You also enjoy assistance with:

  • Planning and Planting: It matters where and how you plant trees. A certified arborist can help you navigate this planning and planting process to ensure you get the best results.
  • Pruning: Haphazard pruning can put your trees at risk. When you choose a certified arborist for pruning, that arborist can maximize the safety, health and appearance of your trees.
  • Emergency Care: When disease strikes or when you otherwise face a tree-related emergency, a certified arborist can provide the care needed to rectify the situation.
  • Removal: Removal of trees can be a dangerous activity. When you choose an arborist, they can execute on an appropriate tree removal process while keeping everyone involved safe.

You will find general landscapers and handymen who say they can help with all of these tree-related tasks. But these are generalists who can’t possibly provide the amount of insight and information a certified arborist can provide. Your trees are important, so make sure they get the best care when you choose an arborist.
