Frontier Tree Services – Why Should You Hire An Arborist Instead Of Pruning That Tree Yourself?
There’s a tree in your garden that’s been looking a little rough recently. You aren’t sure what type of tree it is. It’s been in your yard for as long as you can remember. If just a few branches that need lopping, surely you could do it yourself? Well, you could – but you’d run the risk of damaging the tree, your property and even yourself.
Tending to trees is a job that requires skills. It’s why we need Arborists. Arborists are qualified individuals. They are passionate about keeping trees alive and thriving in all environments, ensuring that the people around it are kept safe and happy with its appearance.
An Arborist has the technical competence to prune and remove trees. Their skills are essential because hacking away at a tree randomly can cause property damage and injury. Trees occupy space above and below the ground. Any changes made to one can affect everything from your neighbour’s views to your property foundations.
Some considerations when hiring a qualified Arborist
When you hire the services of a qualified Arborist, they will first provide you with a detailed quote of what work they plan on carrying out. They will also clearly indicate what state they’ll leave your property. This is because of professional plans out their steps carefully before touching a tree to make sure that the activity goes off without a hitch the first time.
So how can you judge whether or not an Arborist is a good one?
Firstly, they should be able to provide you with a copy of their arboriculture qualifications and memberships to their national or state Arboriculture Association such as The Queensland Arboriculture Association. Don’t be afraid to ask for insurance details, as well as for references of happy clients who you can contact directly.
A qualified Arborist will be more than happy to answer all your questions from the financial to technical aspects of the job. They will also be able to tell you what outcomes are guaranteed and how each of these factors contributes to what is listed in your quote.
So the next time you spot something amiss in a tree, remember that you’re better off paying for a professional to assist you than risk causing more damage than you can afford.
