Why Hiring a Tree Arborist is the Best Choice for the Health of Your Trees
In much the same way that people have a special relationship with their dogs and cats, trees and humans have always been interconnected in a very unique relationship. People spend a lot of time deciding upon which tree species to plant on their lots, and then they nurture and care for the trees as they grow, sharing many memories as the years go by.
Trees share many similarities with us. Just as we do much better when we are nurtured, trees can only prosper and reach their full potential with nurturing designed to meet their special needs. They are susceptible to diseases if left to fend for themselves, but just as there is help available when our pets fall sick, we can avail ourselves of the services that Arborists provide to help our trees to be healthy and flourish.
We have to understand why an Arborist is so important to the health of our trees in order to avoid making the mistake of trying to save money by hiring a tree lopper instead. Tree loppers and Arborists approach tree management from entirely different perspectives. Though usually the less expensive option, tree loppers also frequently have no specialised training and are uncertified. They often lack even the technical knowledge of how to properly prune or cut down trees.
Our trees are exposed to a high level of risk to their health when they are mishandled by a tree lopper.
Some home-owners believe that a tree lopper is suitable if they “only” want a few branches trimmed, and that a tree arborist is only needed to handle sick trees. The reality is, even the simple trimming of trees improperly can expose your trees to the threat of parasites and diseases, which can be prevented if you use a knowledgeable arborist at the outset.
There are many reasons why hiring an Arborist is the best choice to ensure that our trees maintain optimum health. The most important reason is that when we hire an Arborist, we are hiring a professional that has had the training to provide proper care for our trees at every stage of life. Trees require quality care and handling at all times, but especially during times of compromised health. Arborists are professionals that are trained and certified to provide the highest standard of care to nurture our trees back to health.
Arborists also make use of the most up-to-date equipment and techniques.
They are equipped to handle any tree issues, and have the knowledge to use specialised equipment when needed. For example, sometimes dead trees need to be removed but doing so can put property at risk. Arborists are equipped to remove trees under almost any condition to avoid property damage, and they carry the highest standard of insurance to protect their customers should an accident happen.
Tree care requires very specialised tools, and each tool has very specific applications where it is used. Arborists are trained to utilize all these tools properly, whereas tree loppers typically only carry the most basic lopping tools such as the anvil and the bypass loppers. This translates to a much higher level of service provided by Arborists compared to loppers.
The difference between Arborists and loppers is astounding, and you truly do get what you pay for. It’s the difference between hiring a professional certified to provide the highest standards of tree care, and hiring a person who’s had no specialised training and isn’t even knowledgeable enough to trim a tree in the proper way to prevent exposure to parasites and disease.
Trees are incredible and they deserve to receive only the highest standard of care. They are capable of living hundreds of years, and are likely to witness more history that any of us ever will. They shade us during the summer, and provide habitat for wildlife. And they help supply us with clean, healthy air to breathe.
Our relationship with trees will remain interconnected for as long as we both exist, so don’t they deserve to receive only the best treatment from us?
