Certified Arborists: More than just Tree Trimmers!

We sometime have people ask us what the difference is between a tree trimmer and a Certified Arborist. Believe us, they are not the same thing! While our Certified Arborists DO trim trees, their level of skill and education far exceed the average trimmer. Plus, there are many additional benefits! Keep reading to learn more.

If you see a “tree trimmer” advertised, do not assume that you will get the same benefits. Likewise, a Certified Arborist does so much more than just trim trees! A Certified Arborist can help you choose the best plants for your yard and climate. They help you determine the health of your trees and work with you on disease and pest prevention and will help you assess a tree for safety. They know the right time to plant and prune and will do a skilled job at both.

Certified Arborists follow a strict code of ethics. We are members of the International Society of Arboriculture and we follow the outstanding high standard that they have set for excellence in tree care. We continue to educate ourselves on best practices and stay current on new information and technology. We are honest and upfront in everything that we do and will give you all the information necessary to make the best decisions. Your safety and the health of your trees are our top priorities.

Someone who advertises “tree trimming” may only do precisely that. If they are not certified, they may not even be qualified to trim trees very well.  There is no guarantee. Trees can be damaged and left susceptible to disease, if not trimmed properly. Not to mention the aesthetics of the job can be compromised, leaving you with an ugly, misshapen tree. Our Certified Arborists combine skill and knowledge with a sense of landscape design and natural beauty to give you gorgeous healthy trees and shrubs for your home landscape.
