Tip #1: Hire a Pro
You may be fine tackling daily maintenance and smaller projects on your landscape, but when it comes to the big projects, hire an arborist or professional tree care company.
Look at it this way: You maintain your teeth by brushing and flossing, but you would never attempt your own dental work! (We hope…)
The same principle applies to arboriculture; proper tree work requires specific knowledge and training, just like any other profession.
Tree care can also be extremely dangerous, so leave the tough stuff to the experts.
Tip #2: Ask
Just like your teacher always said, there’s no such thing as a stupid question. Not sure if that’s a disease on your tree’s leaves? Ask an arborist. Wary about potential storm damage to your landscape? Ask an arborist.
An arborist is a professional who cares for trees and other woody plants by pruning, fertilizing, monitoring for insects and diseases, consulting on tree related issues, and occasionally planting, transplanting and removing trees.
TCIA recommends finding a local tree care company to provide specific solutions for your landscape. Looking for a quick answer? Use our contact form in the right column to Ask the Arborist.
