Beautiful, healthy trees are an investment with significant returns for the environment and the community. Poorly maintained trees, on the other hand, can be a serious liability or even a hazard.
When tree labour is done improperly, not only does the tree itself face peril but also the person doing the work. That’s why the tree work should be done only by individuals who are qualified and equipped to work safely and correctly.
An expert in the art and science of caring for certain trees is known as an arborist. An ISA certified arborist, who has received specialized training in understanding trees’ needs, can provide the care and upkeep required to improve a tree’s health, attractiveness, and structural soundness.
The Benefits of Hiring a Certified Arborist
Hiring certified arboriculturists to do the tree job comes with many benefits. First, they must pass the ISA arborist certification which is a nongovernmental, voluntary process by which individuals can document their base of knowledge.
When a professional earns the title of “ISA Certified Arborist,” their peers and the general public should recognize them as a tree care expert who has attained a generally accepted level of knowledge in areas like tree biology, diagnosis, maintenance procedures, safety, and other subject and practice areas within the tree care profession as identified through regular job task analyses.
What’s more important is that to keep their certification, they must also pursue further education. They are therefore more likely to be knowledgeable about the most recent arboriculture approaches.
An arborist report will tell you when and how to prune your trees to preserve or enhance their general safety, good looks, and health. Pruning might be also required for young trees to develop stronger structure. Also, pruning can be the right method for removing damaged branches and limbs which pose a great danger to your household and community in general.
With the right tree pruning, arboriculturists can also remove limbs that interfere with structures or rub together causing wounds, in addition to removing dead, diseased, or weak limbs. They can further create a better structure to reduce the potential for storm damage, remove excess weight at the ends of branches as well as create better shape in a damaged tree.
Starting your new tree out in the right way will help it grow to its full size and assure that it will deliver environmental, financial, and social advantages throughout its lifetime. The arborist reports can offer advice on how to plant trees correctly as well as provide the best tree for each location.
Future issues arising from insufficient growing areas, pests, illnesses, or poor development are almost usually the result of planting the incorrect tree in the wrong place. Planting large trees takes specialized tools and knowledge.
To ensure that older trees recover from the move, an ISA Certified Arborist may provide advice on optimum planting depth and general care. Some arborists even plant trees, and most recommend species that are appropriate for certain locations.
Plant Health Care
Getting the right teak outdoor furniture won’t make your garden more appealing or inviting without the grandeur of healthy and good-looking trees and plants. A tree’s sound structure and general health are ensured by preventative care and maintenance. With proper care, a tree will be able to better defend itself against pests, illnesses, and issues related to site conditions, which can be stressful to trees, especially in urban settings.
Arborists recommend actions to maintain good health, including a proactive study or assessment of health and safety. They also manage insects or diseases via Integrated Pest Management, which includes spray or injection programs, root development through aeration, compaction and remedial pruning as well as amendment of the soil, fertilization and seasonal watering.
Emergency Tree Service
Storms and severe weather may cause trees to lose limbs or their entire structure, which could harm people, other trees, buildings and structures, or automobiles. Due to their extreme weight, downed trees are hazardous to remove or prune. An arborist can help to complete the work safely while lowering the potential for additional harm to people or property.
Also, during a storm or other occurrence, considerable caution must be used around trees and limbs caught in power lines. Trees can carry electricity and can be exceedingly dangerous when they come into contact with live utility wires. You should always call your neighbourhood power company first when electricity lines are involved with fallen or otherwise damaged trees.
Tree removal is a last resort, yet in many cases, it is necessary. Perhaps a tree needs to be removed because it’s irreparably hazardous or it needs to be replaced by a more suitable specimen. A large number of ISA Certified Arborists are also qualified in tree risk assessment (TRAQ). These people are specially trained to evaluate risks and offer choices for risk minimization, such as tree removal which in turn can be done effectively and safely with the help of their expertise and tools.
Additional Tree Care Services
Arborists also provide a variety of other tree care services including appraisal and tree risk assessment, installation of lightning protection systems and protection plans for existing trees on development and construction sites. Additionally, stump grinding and cabling or bracing for added support to branches with weak attachment are also part of professional tree service provided by arborists.
