Many of us do not know exactly what arborists do. We know that they deal with trees, but what exactly about trees do they deal with?
An arborist's job is to maintain the health of trees and shrubs with pruning and trimming. They specialize in the art of arboriculture which is the practice of tree trimming with the goal of protecting power lines, streets, and sidewalks from damages trees can cause. Arborists use specialized climbing methods and special equipment to perform the job.
Arborists evaluate a tree's health and give advice as to what the tree needs in order to thrive and grow. They can tell you what particular methods need to be done to treat a diseased tree. Arborists typically work with a tree service company that is skilled to do the job of tree care.
Arborists utilize different equipment in doing tree care. Some of this equipment includes chainsaws, tractors, chippers, sprayers, and trucks. They use equipment only when it is needed. They handle dead and obstructive tree limbs by cutting them away. Arborists often require climbing trees using ladders or aerial lifts.
Further, they cut dead branches that can cause risk to power lines and sidewalks. They also help in improving the aesthetics and well-being of your trees. Some arborists specialize in the beautification of decorative trees and shrubs.
The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certifies arborists who passed the evaluation of their knowledge in arboriculture and keep their credential by maintaining involvement in the ISA through seminars, workshops, and classes. If you have any more questions about what an arborist can do, you can visit their website at www.isa-arbor.com.
Arboriculture is a service that you cannot expect from your regular gardeners because it is the specialized horticulture of trees. An average gardener can further hurt a diseased tree. Letting a landscaper or gardener do tree service in your lawn might not be the best idea because arborists can do this with efficiency. You have to remember that arboriculture is a type of job that not everyone can perform due to the danger it comes with.
