Frequently Asked Questions

There are several reasons why you might need an arborist. Arborists have specific qualifications and experience with diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease, insect infestation and other damage to tree populations.

They are also involved in planting, transplanting, pruning and cutting down trees as well as maintaining existing plantings. Arborists are experts in tree management and can be very helpful if you require help with your trees or shrubs.

Arborists are highly trained and certified individuals who help to assess the condition of trees, provide a diagnosis for potential diseases, and offer their recommendations on how to properly care for and maintain the plants.

In addition, Arborists are also asked to provide specific services such as tree pruning and trimming, crown neatening, pollarding, and stump removal, as well as to help layout preventive care for trees prior to the arrival of the spring season, known as seasonal tree care.

Arboriculture is a branch of horticulture concerned with the cultivation, management and conservation of trees. Arboriculturalists work in towns and cities as well as in the countryside. An arboriculturalist is technically the same thing as an arborist.

Horticulture is the study of plants. It involves plant cultivation for food, utility, beauty and recreation. Horticulturists are people who enhance the cultivation of flowers and plants for ornamental use.

In contrast, an arborist is someone who studies trees and their proper care. They make recommendations for how to keep the trees healthy and thriving. Arborists are needed to evaluate the condition of trees, make recommendations for their care, and provide services to keep them healthy and thriving for years to come.

To become an arborist there are a few key skills you will need to possess. First and foremost, arborists need to be physically fit and strong, so they can easily operate machinery and heavy equipment.

You should have advanced knowledge of tree biology and anatomy as well as knowledge about soil biology and fertiliser compositions. Additionally, arborists should be familiar with operating climbing equipment, such as ropes and harnesses and have the confidence to work at heights.

Finally, all arborists should have excellent communication skills and be able to safely and confidently work in all weather conditions.
