What Does an Arborist Do?

Arborists are tree specialists who preserve the health and vitality of trees. At Berns Landscaping, we have several arborists on staff with extensive experience in tree pruning, tree removal and tree planting. No matter how old the trees are on your property, an arborist can help you care for them. Let’s take a closer look at what arborists do.

Arborist Job Duties and Skills

Arborists provide an array of tree services, including:

  • Tree Trimming
  • Stump Grinding
  • Tree Removal
  • Tree Planting
  • Fertilization
  • Plant Health Inspections
  • Tree Climbing for Pruning and Maintenance
  • Tree Injections
  • Fungus and Insect Treatments
  • Emergency Tree Care
  • …and More

Arborists may be called upon for a specific task, like trimming tree branches that run close to power lines. However, some arborists perform longstanding jobs, like preserving the health of older trees on a property. Whatever your tree care needs may be, our certified arborists are available to assist you.

The Benefits of Hiring an Arborist

Arborists have specialized training to understand the unique needs of each tree species, climate type, and more. Each tree has its own set of pruning requirements. This process is about more than just cutting unwanted branches and leaves. It’s about sculpting the tree so it stays hearty for years to come.

In the case of tree removal, an arborist knows how to successfully stop the tree from regrowing in the future. You cannot simply cut down the tree to the stump. That is not enough to stop most root structures from forming new growths. If you want to completely eradicate or relocate a tree on your property, an arborist can help you do that.

You wouldn’t go to your dentist for a physical, and you wouldn’t ask your doctor to fill in a cavity. If you need a tree service, you need a tree specialist. It’s as simple as that.
