What does an arborist do?
Arborists have knowledge and expertise in the specialised care and maintenance of individual trees. They are educated about all the needs of specific trees, and are well trained and prepared to deliver the proper upkeep needed to care for a tree. Hiring an arborist is critical in certain cases, as correct tree care is an asset that can lead to ensuring the life and health of a tree. Trees that are well cared for and look attractive can add considerable value to your home, whereas poorly maintained trees can do quite the opposite.
A poorly maintained tree can be a significant liability and even endanger you and the homes around you. With risks of large falling branches, creating a general mess of leaves and other debris, or even the whole tree falling on homes or dwellings. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be preventative measures that not only save you the hassle, but can save lives.
Arborists are often confronted with dangerous tasks. For your own safety and the people around you, please ensure that any tree work you are considering is only done only by a trained and equipped arborist. They are qualified to work safely in and around trees.
Common services an arborist provides
Below are some of the common services that an Arborist provides:
Sometimes the life of a tree comes to an end. Generally speaking, tree removal is a last resort, but there are some circumstances when it is necessary. Therefore, an arborist can determine whether a tree should or should not be removed.
Land clearing may be required in some instances where new development projects or sub-divisions are being engaged. Other cases might include preventative fire breaks for hazard reduction burns, post-storm debris clean up (fallen trees/branches), or just general land clearing for aesthetic purposes.
24 Hour Emergency Response
In the event of an emergency (such as a tree landing on a home or dwelling) an arborist’s knowledge will assist in the removal of the tree in a safe manner, while also reducing further risk of damage to your property, and potentially the ones around you.
Tree Reduction & Dead Wooding
The Arborist can assist with removing dangerous sections of trees such as low/overhanging branches, and parts of the tree that are no longer active through deadwood removal. Deadwood can harbour pests and diseases which may eventually affect the sections of the living tree in part or whole.
Hedge trimming may require safety and expertise, especially when they are in high/hard to reach areas. An Arborist can ensure the safety and competence in workmanship when hedge trimming is required in these instances.
Determining the type of pruning that is required to maintain and improve the health of a tree, the appearance, and ensuring the safety of trees and branches is done by an Arborist.
Arborists can also plant trees, and recommend species that are appropriate for a particular location on your property which will ensure optimum growth and health. Arborists can also recommend if there will be a potential danger in the future.
Large trees or trees that are in dangerous proximity to property may require professional crane work to accompany the job. A professional arborist conducts crane work to ensure big jobs are completed safely.
