An arborist is a specialist in the care of individual trees. Arborists 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 which 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 only be done by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.”

Why Hire an Arborist

Choosing an Arborist:

Hiring a tree care specialist takes some planning and consideration. A few simple questions asked in advance may prevent costly, long-lasting mistakes. Check credentials. Arborculture training can be obtained through university degree programs, on the job training and certification classes. Make sure the company you choose employs personnel with the proper training for the job. Verify that the company carries liability and workman’s compensation insurance. A company should be willing to supply a certificate of insurance upon request.

Don’t be afraid to ask for references. This is a great way to see how well past work was performed, and if the company completed everything that was promised.

When comparing prices, remember lowest isn’t necessarily best. Know how the work is to be performed and be sure the company has the proper equipment for the job.

Once the choice is made, be sure your contract is complete with all the details in writing and signed by a company representative, then pay your bill only after the work is completed.
