Why Property Owner Should Opt For Tree Arborist Instead Of Tree Loppers
Of all the flora that mother nature has gifted human being with, trees are probably some of the most valued. We love trees, not only for the life sustenance that they accord human beings with (oxygen generation comes to mind) but also for the pristine ambiance that they yield. With this in mind, home owners usually value the trees in their properties. A pointer to how much we all love trees is the amount of money that home owners spend year over year to ensure that their trees are healthy.
Spending this money is justified. Just like human beings, trees tend to be quite susceptible to diseases caused by pathogens, and viruses. As such, for a tree to remain healthy and serve its natural purpose with efficiency, it requires high-quality care. After all, when we fall ill, we seek the best possible medical services to get us back to our healthy state. Additionally, even with the absence of disease and ailment, trees usually require high-quality care to ensure that they grow and remain healthy.
To ensure that trees around their property are in healthy and in good condition, most property owners will go for arborist service or tree lopper service. Seldom will a property owner take care of their tree as a DIY project. For starters, taking care of trees is not a task for novices. Additionally, one cannot attain the skills requisite to properly taking care of the trees from a YouTube tutorial.
However, there are significant differences even in choosing between an arborist and a lopper. At face value, both are touted to be tree-care specialists. However, further scrutiny of their qualifications and expertise reveal that this is not entirely the case. Arborists tend to be the professional bunch while loppers tend to be the experimental novices, offering cheap but also dangerous services. Furthermore, loppers do not render their services within certain set guidelines, yielding varying quality of work. Therefore, there is great value in hiring arborists instead of loppers.
Herein we will explore the benefits of hiring arborists to take care of your tree instead of loppers.
#1. Professional Qualifications – The main element that differentiates an arborist from a lopper is their qualifications. Whilst it may appear that no intricate knowledge is required to take care of trees, matters of the ground point towards a contrary state of matters. As mentioned earlier, trees are quite susceptible to diseases, viruses, pathogen and pests. Each one of these dilapidating health ailments put pressure on different parts of a tree system. Some attack the roots, the leaves, and the stem or a combination of these parts of the tree. Arborists are professionally trained to identify the causes of any ailment, as well as coming up with a curative and or preventive measure to ensure the health of the tree is never compromised.
On the other hand, loppers are simply individuals that take up the profession of tree-care out necessity, without getting the requisite knowledge. Therefore, most loppers perform tree care without using knowledge-based and knowledge-backed methods. This endangers not only your tree but also your safety and your property.
#2. Correct Equipment – Another distinguishing element between arborists and loppers is the equipment that either uses. For the most part, arborists are trained to use a wide variety of equipment and tools in the right manner. Therefore, they are well-placed to perform any task, from pruning to tree felling. Furthermore, aside from being well-trained, arborists are also insured. They thus render their services with the security that their clients’ properties are covered.
On the other hand, loppers tend to use basic tree care tools and devices such as the Anvil and the bypass lopper. Additionally, they may also be inadequately prepared to use the devices and tools, which endangers your personal safety and the safety of your property. In this regard, whilst choosing between an arborist and a lopper, cheap is not always better.
