What is an arborist?

Why is it important that the tree care company I hire has an arborist on staff? The trees on your property could do one of two things. They could either improve your property value, or if they are diseased, not cared for, or problematic, they could end up as a costly expense.

An arborist is an individual that is certified and trained on the proper care of trees, and how to diagnose, and properly treat tree-related issues. A solution to your issue could be anything from root injections to even just proper care and pruning that will address the issue.

An arborist is an individual that is trained and certified to diagnose and properly treat the issues related to your trees. An arborist specializes in proper fertilizing, pruning, monitoring your trees for diseases and insect infestations that could have deadly, long-term effects on the health of the tree.
