A Brief Introduction To The Job Of An Arborist

An arborist is a trained professional who can cultivate, manage, care for, and rehabilitate trees and shrubs. Certified arborists have a certain level of competency in the art and science of tree care by passing a comprehensive examination by an organization like the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). A certified arborist will offer an accurate diagnosis of the problem your tree is facing to create an improvement plan.
Here, in this post, we’ll talk about the role of an arborist.

Why should you hire an arborist?

You’ve planted trees on your property to enhance your living environment and increase the value of your property. Trees, like us, gain character and personality as they age. So it is essential to take proper care of your trees as unmaintained trees can make your home look nasty and unappealing. Failing to maintain a tree for a longer period can cause more damage to the tree than is necessary. If a limb is diseased or infested with bugs or fungus, it can quickly spread to other parts of the tree. Moreover, dead and broken branches can fall at any time and cause damage to your property or injure other humans. If a tree is planted in your yard, it becomes your duty to ensure that your trees are safe. 
An arborist is an expert who has all the proper tools and equipment to handle the tree care safely. For instance, if you are looking to transplant a tree that is two stories high, an arborist can ensure that it is safely planted to its new destination. Arborists are also trained to evaluate the risks that may occur because of strong winds or hail.

What are the main services that an arborist can provide?

Tree pruning
An arborist uses specific techniques and methods to remove dead, dying, and diseased branches, or branches that rub together during routine landscape maintenance. By pruning trees in specific ways, an arborist encourages fruiting and flowering, and shapes the tree into particular forms. A certified arborist helps enhance the natural beauty of your trees by helping to preserve their strength, stature, and seasonal character.

Tree care and maintenance

Tree maintenance 
Proper tree care and maintenance are vital in maintaining the health of a tree. Tree maintenance comprises trimming, preventative treatments for diseases and insects, and overall health care to keep your landscape healthy. 
Tree removal
If a tree is dead or dying, causing obstructions in the pathway, or must be replaced by a more desirable tree, then an arborist is the best person for effective removal of a tree. Felling a tree without damaging property requires skills and expertise. After cutting down the tree, an arborist will make the disposal process much simpler.
Since a tree is an investment, you’ll want to make sure that you get everything right to see a beautiful and healthy tree. For instance, planting a tree in the wrong location can cause poor growth, diseases, and insect infestation. An arborist is the best person to guide you on picking up the best species suitable for the soil and environmental factors. An arborist will also inform you how to take care of the unique needs of a tree.
