Arborists specialize in the care of individual trees. They 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 trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done by those trained to work safely in trees.
What Are The Services Arborists Provide?
An arborist can determine the type of pruning necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of trees. Pruning techniques include removing limbs that:
- interfere with utilities or structures
- obstruct streets or sidewalks
- are dead and weak
- are dead and pose a risk
- are diseased or infested
- have been damaged by storms
- will increase light penetration and reduce wind resistance
Other pruning techniques are used to maintain proper structure in young trees, improve tree shape and form, and reduce the likelihood of future damage during storms.
