What is a certified arborist?

Spring is finally here and what better time than Spring Cleaning to tackle your yard.  Most homeowners have trees in their yard that need maintenance, from tree pruning, tree trimming, tree removal, or stump removal, and other landscaping.  Tree care and maintenance can be dangerous and are best suited for professionals – like a certified arborist. 

What is a certified arborist?

A certified arborist has 3+ years of professional experience and has passed an examination covering all facets of arboriculture.  A certified arborist specializes in the care of individual trees and is trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees.  They are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained to properly care for the tree and your landscape.

Why should you hire a certified arborist?

Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability.  Pruning or removing trees can be dangerous work, especially with larger trees.  Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns on investment. Well cared for trees can add considerable value to your property and possibly save on your energy bill by creating shade in the hot summer season.
