Why Do I Need To Hire A Certified Arborist?

In the Houston area, there are hundreds of basic tree workers willing to perform tree services for a quick dollar. However, hiring these amateur and untrained workers can put tree health in serious jeopardy and can even put owners at risk because of their unsafe practices and possible liability issues. What can property owners do if they need tree work performed but want to avoid unsafe amateur tree workers? The answer is simple: hire a Certified Arborist to care for the trees on your residential property.

Certified Arborists are tree care experts that have a minimum of three years experience working in the professional tree care industry, and have completed rigorous training on all facets of tree care. Certified Arborists have extensive knowledge regarding tree nutrition, tree biology, correct tree pruning methods, soil and water issues, safe work procedures, tree preservation and treatment options for sick or damaged trees. In the Houston area, local Certified Arborists can identify and recommend native trees that grow well in Houston’s hot and humid climate, and can also help care for exotic trees that might need more specialized maintenance. They also understand how to improve soil health and water conditions to ensure optimal tree health throughout the year.

Another great reason to entrust trees to a Certified Arborist is their high level of quality tree care in regards to long-term health and beauty. Certified Arborists strive to preserve and protect tree health, whereas amateur and unskilled tree workers will usually lop off branches in a haphazard manner without any regard to their long-term health, growth patterns or beauty. Certified Arborists are trained to perform proactive and correct methods of tree pruning to ensure optimal health without causing tree wounds or weakening their health. Certified Arborists also apply correct levels of mulch or other fertilizers to promote tree health, and are trained to identify and treat invasive tree insects or diseases. Many amateur tree workers are not familiar with the tree insects or diseases common to native trees in Texas, leaving their clients’ trees facing certain death.

Finally, one of the best benefits of hiring Certified Arborists to care for trees on residential properties is the peace of mind that comes with having safe, professional and reliable tree professionals performing tree care. Certified Arborists undergo extensive safety training utilizing national ANSI-300 safety standards for tree care, significantly reducing the likelihood of tree damage, on-site accidents or injuries. In addition, there is also a much lower chance of owner property damage because of their cautious and careful tree pruning and tree removal procedures.
