Why Hire an Arborist?

An arborist is a specialist in the care of individual trees. Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well-cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing/felling trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.

Trees restore natural harmony in an urban environment, giving scale to human life. Trees are alive, like us, and require an investment and continuous maintenance in order to provide the maximum desired benefits. Some benefits include:

  • Air Filtration? filters out particulate matter and absorbing harmful gases
  • Purifies Water? slows and filters rain water and protects aquifers & watersheds
  • Cost Reduction? reduces yearly heating and cooling costs 
  • Climate Control? obtained by moderating the effects of sun, wind, and rain

Increase Property Value? well-cared landscape properties are 5-20% more valuable than non-landscaped estates.

Hiring an Arborist

Pruning large trees can be dangerous. If pruning involves working above the ground or using power equipment, it is best to hire a professional arborist. An arborist can determine the type of pruning that is necessary to improve the health, appearance, and safety of your trees. A professional arborist can provide the services of a trained crew, with all of the required safety equipment and liability insurance.

How often does my tree need care?

The type and frequency of tree care depends on the species, age, location, climate, and other factors that affect the tree’s growth. The first step is to educate yourself about your trees and understand their needs. It is imperative to understand that proper tree care is a life long process, and that planting and caring for a tree is a long-tern commitment, not just a one time deal.


Can trees be hazardous?

 

Trees are essential to our world, offering a wide range of benefits to our environment. However, trees become hazardous liabilities if they fall and injure people or damage property. Proper constant maintenance will help prevent and identify when a tree becomes dangerous. Evaluating the seriousness of a trees condition is best done by a professional Arborist.
