Why you should enlist the help of an Arborist

Trees are really important to our everyday lives and they need proper care to ensure they stay healthy and vibrant.

Arborists specialise in the care of trees. They are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide the right care. Proper tree care is an investment that 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 specimens, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.

Here are some of the reasons you should hire an Arborist for your tree care needs.


1. Arborists are trained in proper tree care

Arborists are trained in both the art and science of proper tree care, tree planting and tree maintenance. From tree pruning and removal to diagnosing ailments and insect treatments, Arborists are all about nurturing trees and they can perform a number of services such as;


Tree Pruning: Pruning is a horticultural practice which alters the form and growth of a plant. It is the best preventive maintenance a young plant can receive. Pruning is very important to control plant size and shape. Many issues may be prevented by pruning. Pruning young shrubs is not as critical as large trees need care by professionals who have the proper equipment. An Arborist can find the necessary type of pruning to improve the health and appearance of the tree and does it carefully.


Tree Planting: Trees are very important to us and to our environment. Trees give us oxygen to breathe and take in all of the carbon dioxides and turn it into oxygen. Planting the right tree in the right place is very important for the long-term health of a tree. An Arborist can discover the right place for a tree and also take care of planting trees.



2. Arborists can work on trees safely

Pruning or removing trees, especially really big trees, can be dangerous! No matter the job, Arborists are experienced and will have access to all the proper tools and equipment to get the job done right and done safely.

3. Arborists can handle storm damage

Severe weather can have a lasting impact on your home and the trees in the surrounding landscape. Tearing winds and penetrating rains work together, softening soils and overturning trees. Lightning strikes generate intense heat that vaporises water within the tree, causing wood to split and bark to explode. During a storm the failure of part or all of one mature tree may cause significant damage to personal property or powerlines.
An Arborist can help clean up the debris and minimise any further property damage and help with removal of trees if necessary. Some trees with unacceptable levels of risk are best removed. An Arborist can help plant a new tree in an appropriate place as a replacement.
