Why Hire an Arborist?
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 only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.
Planting a tree is a lifelong investment. How well this investment grows depends on the type of tree selected and the planting location, the care provided during planting, and the follow-up care after planting.
Getting your new tree off to a healthy start will help the tree mature to its full size and ensures it will provide environmental, economic, and social benefits throughout its lifetime.
Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. Although forest trees grow quite well with only nature's pruning, landscape trees require a higher level of care to maintain their structural integrity and aesthetics.
Pruning must be done with an understanding of tree biology. Improper pruning can create lasting damage or even shorten the tree's life. An arborist can determine the type of pruning necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of trees.
Cutting down a tree should be left to professionals to take care of. Circumstances that may necessitate responsible tree removal include trees that are dead or dying, large trees and trees that are near any type of structure.
Have you ever imagined what the world would be like without trees? The benefits of trees extend beyond their beauty.
Trees planted today will offer social, environmental, and economic benefits for years to come.
