Your trees are a valuable investment, providing oxygen to the air, shade from the summer heat, and beauty to your home. It only makes sense that you want to give them the best care possible and who knows trees better than an arborist? Arborists study trees inside and out, protecting them from diseases, helping them grow, and making sure that they receive the proper nutrients.

 

Planting

When it comes to planting trees, arborists can tell you what species will best thrive in your area, the type of soil that the tree needs, and the right location. All of these factors are important in establishing a healthy environment for the tree so that it can grow up healthy and strong.

Health

Even trees are susceptible to diseases so it is important to make sure that they remain healthy and an arborist can help you do this. Arborists understand that trees need good soil to grow in and are trained in the proper fertilization techniques for different trees so that each one of your trees will receive individualized care. Insects can be a problem too, but arborists will know how to address the issue and keep your trees looking their best.

Pruning

While you may be tempted to take on this job yourself, there is a science when it comes to pruning and you could actually cause damage to the tree if you do it wrong. This is why it is always best to hire an arborist since they are trained in the proper way to prune and trim back a tree. They can identify branches that are weak or insect infested and they have the skills to correctly cut the branches off the tree.

Pruning is also a dangerous job and you can easily get hurt by falling branches or by a tumble out of the tree itself, if it is a tall one. A trained arborist has the proper equipment to deal with this kind of job in a safe manner.

Emergency tree removal

You never know when an emergency situation can occur and having an arborist will save you a lot of headache in the long run if you have to have a portion of the tree removed after being damaged by a storm or by fire. Trees that have been weakened are a danger to property and people and you want to make sure that the situation is taking care of as soon as possible. A professional arborist can come in, assess the situation, and then provide the best method to remove the damaged parts.

Tree removal

Deciding to remove a tree from your property can be a difficult decision. This is why it is a good idea to consult with an arborist before making that decision since the arborist can take a look at the tree and tell you whether it can be saved or whether the best thing to do is to remove it. When a tree needs to be removed, the arborist can provide that service for you, saving you the hassle of having to do it yourself.
