Why Hire an Arborist?

An arborist is specially trained and equipped to deliver care for individual trees. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well-managed trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Therefor, hiring an arborist is a decision that should be made wisely.

Why hire an arborist

Pruning - Determine the type of pruning needed to maintain or improve tree health, appearance, and safety

  • Eliminate rubbing branches
  • Remove limbs that interfere with wires, gutters, or roofs, or that obstruct streets or sidewalks
  • Remove dead or weak limbs that pose a hazard or lead to decay
  • Create better tree structure to reduce wind resistance and potential for storm damage
  • Train young trees
  • Remove storm-damaged limbs
  • Improve the shape of the tree

Removal - As a last resort, but when necessary, an arborist can help decide whether or not the tree should be removed. Arborists have the skills and equipment to safely and efficiently remove trees. Removal is recommended when the tree is:

  • Dead or dying
  • Considered irreparably hazardous
  • Causing an obstruction that cannot be corrected through pruning
  • Crowding and causing harm to other trees
  • Unsuitable for the location and needs to be replaced
  • To be removed for new construction

Planting - An arborist makes proper species selection based on site conditions. The wrong tree in the wrong location leads to future problems such as:

  • Limited growing space
  • Insect and disease infestations
  • Poor growth
  • Utility obstructions leading to topping
