Nurturing Your Trees for Optimum Health
Trees need specialised care to ensure they maintain peak health. A properly cared for tree will sometimes live for hundreds of years, and will be around for your descendants to enjoy long after you have passed on. The quality of the treatment that your tree receives often determines the outcome.
Pruning services, as opposed to lopping services, involve strategically removing overgrown and dead branches and stems to improve the health of the tree. This type of service is provided by an Arborist, who is a highly skilled professional that is certified in all the procedures and modern techniques for tree care. Securing the services of an Arborist ensures that your tree will remain healthy after the pruning activities have been completed.
Each type of tree has specific pruning requirements that Arborists are trained to know. Tree loppers simply can’t be expected to provide the right kind of treatment to correct tree growth because they lack the training and certification of an Arborist. Improperly pruning or trimming a tree exposes the tree to greater risks of infection by parasites and disease, and can lead to unstable growth. This sometimes leads to the premature death of the tree.
Most tree loppers fail to understand the importance of strategic branch trimming, and its impact to tree health.
Consequently, this many times leads to cuts made to critical parts of the tree which can have a significant impact to the trees health. The tree can lose its proper shape and begin to wither, indicating declining health. Hiring a tree lopper to care for a tree has been compared to hiring a veterinarian to perform a complicated surgery on a human. He simply lacks the training and technical know-how to do it right.
Trees are frequently located near populated areas filled with people, homes, and property. A dead tree poses a significant risk to people and structures due to the increased likelihood of the tree falling. It is critically important to hire a knowledgeable professional to remove the tree to avoid the risk to property or life. An Arborist has all the necessary tools and training to bring a tree down with very little risk, and carries the highest levels of insurance to cover the rare cases that accidents happen.
The same level of safety is not guaranteed when tree loppers are hired to remove a tree instead of an Arborist. Not only do they lack the necessary training to recognize and handle high risk situations, they frequently also lack the proper equipment and manpower. Tree loppers are typically untrained for emergency situations, and are sent by the companies that hire them into situations that they aren’t prepared for. When the safety of people or property is at stake, it is not the time to take additional risks by hiring a company that can’t be relied on to provide the highest quality of services.
Only an expert trained with the knowledge of how to properly handle trees should be called for an emergency situation. Failing to do this can increase the danger of injury or property damage that was trying to be avoided in the first place.
When a certified Arborist is brought in to perform tree care, you have the assurance that you are hiring the most qualified individual for the job. You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that the job will be taken care of properly to protect your family and home.
