Beyond the Green Thumb: Why Certified Arborists Matter

While a friendly neighbor with a chainsaw might seem like a quick fix for tree maintenance, there’s a world of difference between a “tree guy” and a certified arborist.
Arborists possess a deep understanding of tree biology, plant health, and proper tree care techniques. They are trained professionals who have invested significant time and resources in education and certification.

What can our certified arborists do for your trees?

  • Tree Health Assessments:Our arborists will thoroughly examine your trees and identify potential problems, such as disease, insect infestations, structural weaknesses, or nutrient deficiencies.
  • Tailored Care Plans:Based on the assessment, our experts will develop a customized care plan that addresses your tree’s specific needs. This plan may include recommendations for watering, pruning, fertilization, and pest management.
  • Expert Pruning:Proper pruning is an essential aspect of tree care. It promotes healthy growth, enhances aesthetics, and removes hazardous branches that could pose a threat to your property or safety. Our arborists are skilled in various pruning techniques and ensure these are executed with precision to avoid harming your trees.

Simple Steps, Big Benefits: Everyday Tree Care Tips

While certified arborists can provide comprehensive care, you can also show your trees some love with these easy-to-follow tips:

  • Water Wisely:Deeply soak your trees once a week during dry spells, and adjust the frequency based on the maturity and type of tree. Overwatering can be detrimental, so focus on providing a good soak rather than frequent shallow watering.
  • Mulch Magic:Spread a 2-3 inch layer of shredded bark or wood chips around the base of your tree (keeping a few inches away from the trunk). Mulch helps retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature.
  • Sun Power:Consider the sunlight needs of different tree varieties when planting. Shade-loving trees planted in full sun will struggle, just like sun-loving trees placed in shady areas. Knowing your tree’s light requirements sets it up for success.
  • Leaf Watch:Pay attention to changes in your tree’s leaves. Discoloration, smaller leaves, or unusual patterns could signal stress or disease. Early detection is crucial, so contact a certified arborist if you notice any concerns.

By following these simple tips and partnering with TreeHugger’s certified arborists, you can ensure your trees remain healthy and vibrant contributors to your landscape for years to come.
