Why You Should Choose Arborists Over Tree Loppers
Your trees need your help in order to stay healthy, resist diseases, and enjoy a full lifespan. You need to make the right care decisions in order to safeguard your trees and care for them in the proper fashion. As an example, when you find a dead branch in a tree, you should see that it gets pruned by an experienced professional. It’s a good idea to give your trees a full appraisal by an expert eye when branches are removed. The professional you’re looking for in this situation is an arborist. The range of additional services arborists have to offer (examples include watering and mulching your trees) is extremely important. Arborists don’t just take the steps necessary to keep your trees healthy; they will also teach you how to best care for them.
Of course, arborists aren’t the only professionals that offer tree trimming services. There are also tree loppers. As their name suggests, these firms are concentrated on a single service: cutting branches. Hiring loppers offers you just one advantage: Their services are cheaper. Yet even this is less of an advantage than it appears initially. In the longer view, over-zealous trimming can do more harm than good, and it may even cause more serious (and more costly!) problems in the future. Tree lopping is virtually always a fixed “take it or leave it” service that does not include any examination of your trees or advice regarding their care. Speaking generally, you will always do better by your trees by engaging a real arborist who will care for them with an eye toward their long-term health.
Taking the longer view is always appropriate when you’re caring for your trees.
Tree care is a demanding process and it takes a lot of time; we get attached to our trees because of their long life spans. What’s the best way to maximise your trees’ lives and make them as healthy as possible? Hire an arborist! Professional care delivers a higher standard of expertise and protects your trees for the future. A good arborist becomes a long-term partner in caring for your trees; they typically follow up with their clients to make sure that trees receive appropriate care and their owners are fully equipped with the information they need to keep them healthy. The result is greater peace of mind. You can rest easy knowing that your trees will grow and thrive when they’re under the care of a proper arborist.
Tree loppers offer a very different sort of service. Their primary interest is in extracting profit rather than caring for trees. They are largely unconcerned with the minutiae of tree care or the needs of individual trees; loppers are more focused on the job at hand. Tree loppers will not be much interested in how your trees fare in the months and years to come after they have performed their service. This lack of continuity translates into a service that is much less valuable to you. When you hire an arborist instead, your trees will receive not only the highest levels of care but also be recorded for future reference. This means that subsequent care can be informed by what has happened to the specific tree in the past.
Arborists are mainly concerned with nurturing your trees and seeing that they continue to grow in a healthy fashion.
They will regulate branches and prune where necessary, but they always have an eye on the future. Arborists are certified and registered because they have demonstrated both a keen interest in and a deep knowledge of trees and their needs. Hiring an arborist may not be the cheapest option available to you but it is almost always the best.
