Why Hire An Arborist

Why Is It a Good Idea to Hire a Licensed Arborist?

An arborist is a specialist in the care of 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 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 trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.

The arborist can determine what type of pruning is necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance and safety of your trees.

These techniques include:


  • Eliminating branches that rub each other.
  • Removing limbs that interfere with wires, building facades, gutters, roofs, chimneys, windows or obstruct streets or sidewalks.
  • Removing dead or weak limbs that pose a hazard and may lead to decay in the tree if not removed.
  • Removing diseased or insect infested limbs.
  • Creating better structure to lessen wind resistance and reduce the potential for storm damage.
  • Removing limbs damaged by adverse weather conditions.
  • Thinning or removal of unnecessary branches.
  • Improving the shape or silhouette of the tree.



Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary. An arborist can help determine whether or not a tree should be removed. Arborists have the skills and equipment to safely and efficiently remove trees. Removal is recommended when:


  • The tree is dead or dying.
  • The tree is considered irreparably hazardous.
  • The tree is causing an obstruction that is impossible to correct through pruning.
  • The tree is crowding and causing harm to other trees.
  • The tree is to be replaced by a more suitable specimen.
  • The tree should be removed to allow for new construction.



Storms may cause limbs or entire trees to fail, often landing on homes, cars, other structures or other trees. The weight of storm damaged trees is great and they can be very dangerous to remove or trim. An arborist can assist in performing the job in a safe manner, while reducing further risk of damage to your property.
