How Can Arborists Help in Caring for Trees on Your Property

When it comes to yard care, many property owners try to do it themselves or hire a landscaping crew. These are good options for flowering plants and shrubbery, but caring for trees requires specific training and skills. Trees grow differently than most plant life and have particular maintenance needs and natural threats that require professional attention to ensure a long, healthy life.

A professionally trained, certified arborist knows how to care for the growth, maintenance, and removal of trees. Hire a certified arborist and take advantage of the best tree service in Marietta by Top Tier Trees.

What Is a Certified Arborist?

Arborists are basically tree doctors. Just like medical professionals must thoroughly understand the human body, a certified arborist goes through years of education and experience to learn and understand how to care for trees. To become certified, they must pass the exam required by the International Society of Arboriculture (the study of tree and shrub care).

Certified arborists continue their education throughout their career, so they are always up-to-date on new techniques for giving trees the best care. Certified arborists must stay modern on tree-related care methods to maintain their certificates, ensuring that they know how to deal with any tree-related situation.

Do I Need to Hire a Certified Arborist?

Knowing if a certified arborist is what you need for your property can be challenging. With proper pruning and general upkeep, most trees seem to be in good condition.

There are some tell-tale signs that you should call a professional arborist to evaluate your trees. If you notice any of these issues, your trees require a certified arborist:

  • Dead trees with weakened or fallen tree branches
  • Inability to revive trees with nutrient-rich fertilizer or water
  • Trees that have grown so much that they obstruct your view, driveway, or other paths
  • Tree roots growing out of the ground or into pipes or structures on your property
  • The appearance of strange coloration or growth on a tree
  • Trees that have suffered a lightning strike or otherwise sustained damage during a storm

A certified arborist can tell you more about the condition of your trees, helping you understand what’s happening with your trees and guiding you in tree-related decisions.

How Can Arborists Help Me With Tree Care

Certified arborists understand that caring for trees can be a daunting task. They offer various services to best serve those less familiar with the intricate details of tree care ranging from the reinvigoration of a dying tree to the uprooting and disposal of a dead one.

Arborists know how to recognize tree health issues. By inspecting a branch collar (the part of a tree connecting the trunk to a larger limb), certified arborists may discover a collection of bacterial growth contributing to a dying tree. They can also recognize insect damage, disease, or trees lacking the necessary nutrients to ensure a longer life.

After an arborist inspects your trees and diagnoses any issues, they will work with you to find the best solution that fits your needs. Caught early enough, many trees suffering from insect infestation or disease can receive treatment and regain their health. If too much damage has occurred or the tree is too sick, a certified arborist can recommend whether a partial tree trimming or complete tree removal would be best.

Disease and infestation aren’t the only tree problems arborists can handle. Certified arborists know how to prune and trim your trees to your preferences while also ensuring your trees’ health. If full tree removal is necessary, certified arborists will safely remove your tree and dispose of it for you.

When to Hire a Certified Arborist

Many property owners wait until they’re having tree problems before contacting a professional arborist. However, certified arborists are happy to help you answer any tree-related question at all stages of the tree’s lifecycle, such as:

  • Am I planting the right tree?
  • How do I grow trees in a specific pattern?
  • What trees grow best in my property’s environment?
  • Are there common tree problems to watch out for? How can I avoid them?

If you’re considering planting trees in your yard, hire a certified arborist to help you choose the best trees for your property and guide you in how to plant and maintain the trees over time.

Arborists can also help you understand seasonal tree care, which is especially important in climates with extreme seasonal weather. The knowledge you’ll gain with a certified arborist protects you against future growth issues with your trees.

Certified arborists are also helpful to hire before planting trees because they know which trees add curb appeal and how to grow them to increase the value of your home, which is especially important if you’re trying to sell your property. Arborists will also help you plant your trees safely, ensuring they can get the nutrients they need and have the right amount of space for growth.

You’ll also learn how to care for growing trees, what maintenance they’ll require as they grow, and what to do in certain situations, such as bad weather or potential insect infestations. A professional arborist ensures that you have the most beautiful trees on the block.
