Reasons To Hire A Tree Arborist But Not A Tree Lopper
People and trees have a symbiotic relationship and similarities that they have been sharing since the beginning of time. Although many people may not know this, trees too need additional care to grow to a desirable shape, size and remain healthy. The need for additional care is one of the similarities that trees share with humans. Just like us, trees too are susceptible to diseases. Infected trees should be cared for and the right measures taken to prevent the disease from spreading. Nonetheless, having a professional tree expert look into the case can help prevent a reinfection or spread of the disease.
Only an arborist can deliver proper treatment and handle trees expertly and efficiently. Most tree owners, however, resolve to have the tree removed by a lopper (loppers are much cheaper) instead of having it treated as it should. Although arborists and tree loppers offer tree services, their speciality is entirely different. Arborists are better trained and well-equipped to handle tree conditions and infections as compared to the less experienced/trained loppers. Arborists, therefore, provide a much higher quality job as compared to loppers, even when it comes to simple tasks such as pruning or cutting down trees.
Outlined below are some of the reasons you should hire a tree arborists and not a lopper.
As mentioned earlier, trees and humans have broad similarities. We all want to be handled and treated by the best doctors and health workers out there when we fall sick. In the same way, trees too require high-quality treatment services and care when infected or affected. Having an arborist handle all tree issues you might have guarantees better handling and treatment, especially to severely affected/infected trees. The reason why you should only hire an arborist is that, arborists are just like medical doctors – they are well educated, trained, qualified, and certified professionals; only that they deal with trees.
Tree loppers, on the other hand, do not have any specialised training or certification. They are just random people who have an interest in trees and know their way around basic equipment needed to handle trees. Many people often fall for tree loppers for they are considerably much cheaper and easier to find. Most of the loppers in the industry today are self-proclaimed. Just because one has the equipment and tools needed to operate on a tree doesn’t mean he is qualified to. Arborists are therefore better suited for the job as compared to tree loppers.
Qualified arborists invest in, and are loaded with all the equipment required/needed to handle any tree issue. Dead trees, for instance, may require special cutting skills to ensure they do not damage property around them. Unlike a tree lopper, an arborist will first inspect the tree and put in more skills acquired in training to bring the tree down successfully without destroying property or risking anyone’s safety. In addition to this, an arborist’s equipment is insured, meaning all liability goes to the company should there be an accident. Various tree conditions should be handled with the right equipment or tool. You cannot use one tool to treat all tree conditions you come across. Professional tree agencies invest in teams of arborists to ensure they have all the right equipment for each single job.
While an arborist is loaded with most of the required equipment, a tree lopper will usually have a Bypass lopper and the Anvil. Interestingly, most loppers will not turn down a tree cutting or trimming job even when they know they do not have the right gear for the job. An arborist will, however, ensure he/she has the required equipment to handle a tree problem before accepting a task. This is how professional arborists are. Using the services of an arborist, therefore, guarantees a high-quality job and proper care for your trees as well.
