Arborists are professionals who focus on individual tree care (as opposed to managing forests). Identifying problems with your trees, and then correctly – and safely – addressing those issues, can be challenging. Hiring an arborist to plant, prune, remove, or perform routine maintenance on trees will ensure that you receive substantial returns on your investment.
These professionals prioritize safety and follow the standards of proper tree care (known as ANSI A300 Standards) set forth by the Tree Care Industry Association. To maintain their certification, arborists are required to take continuing education and stay informed of the latest standards of tree care.
