"We lost a large tree during a wind storm. I called for an estimate and received it same-day by an arborist. The work was completed within a week, everything was done very well. Their customer service is excellent. We had three estimates and theirs was the lowest."

However, Fredy and crew were on time did a great job fast, more than I expected even, clearing trees that weren't originally discussed. Very satisfied, definitely recommended for lot clearing, will call him for lawn mowing too if I have need."

"OMG! Not enough compliments I can give. Worth every single penny and the cost was great. The work, professionalism, quality, everything, above and beyond. Rock (owner) was able to hear what I needed to be done in my jacked up patio from previous owners. He made suggestions that made perfect sense and gave so many suggestions and options with pricing attached. Delivery of materials happened just as he said, everything was on time and placed in a perfect area that would not obstruct anything. He was on time when he started work and he worked all day long for hours and hours with his team. The work area stayed clean throughout the process. Materials delivered on a Monday, work started on a Tuesday, work completed Thursday. Amazing. During the process, he actually wanted my opinion on how it was going. Giving suggestions on how to tweak things if I needed and giving recommendations as things arose that were unforeseen. Amazing. The end product was outstanding. He even gave an area unknown to him and his team, gave an area for me and my kids to memorialize my husband their father who passed away last year from a massive heart attack. This one idea for this one spot to cover a large Willow Tree root turned into a small memorial area and I cannot thank him and his team enough. My kids are amazed by the work that has been done and they love the patio now. Family members that stop by after the work was done the same exact day are floored at how this patio looks. It is a totally different patio and it is absolutely wonderful. Not enough compliments again. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Will constantly recommend Rock and his team and will constantly go back to Rock and his team for future work. Rock listens and hears his customers. He does not try to sell you on things that you do not need. He does not try to sell you on anything. He listens he hears he gives you what you want suggests what you may need and lets you make that decision. Nothing is forced upon you at all. Pricing is astounding true and honest and transparent, and just a great rate overall. This was above and beyond what I was expecting. He took a patio that had been torn apart completely from the way it was originally built and made it into an area that my family can use in full and remember a loved one simultaneously. So many kudos to Rock and his team. Thank you, Rock...I keep saying thank you, I am going to keep saying thank you. "

If your property includes trees, you will sooner or later find yourself needing an arborist. This tree care professional can help you take care of sick trees, prune them to keep them healthy, and perform a variety of other tasks specifically designed to make sure that your property and all of its greenery remains in good shape.

If, when the time comes, you need help finding an arborist near you, enter your zip code to be connected today to local arbor care companies. In that case, here's everything you need to know before starting the process.

What Does an Arborist Do?

As mentioned above, an arborist is a tree care specialist. Here's how the International Society of Arboriculture defines the profession: "An arborist, by definition, is an individual trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees. Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care."

In other words, an arborist is specifically qualified to help improve and maintain the health of any trees on your property. They can prune your trees, spot early signs of disease and damage, or remove them if necessary. Keeping your trees healthy is crucial to both the value and safety of your property, and the right arborist can help you achieve that goal.

The Licensing and Qualifications any Arborist Should Possess

Of course, not everyone who claims to be qualified to take care of your trees actually is. That's why when looking for an arborist near you, you should always make sure that they are licensed to perform the work necessary to maintain, prune, or cut down your trees.

Certification by the International Society of Arboriculture is voluntary. Still, it results in a type of quality seal that will be invaluable for you in choosing a professional to work with. Other potential certifications that carry similar weight are the American Society of Consulting Arborists, the Tree Care Industry Association, or your local/state arborists' association.

Arborists certified by these organizations follow a code of ethics that ensure they take every decision and action with the trees' health in mind. In addition, the associations make it a point to keep their members up-to-date with the latest industry trends and best practices, ensuring that a professional who carries this certification will take care of your property as well as possible.

The Costs of Hiring an Arborist

Naturally, the costs of hiring an arborist depend significantly on the exact services you need. Some arborists offer a free tree health inspection, allowing you to evaluate whether further services are needed. Most of our homeowners report that pruning services cost an average of $691 per visit, while tree cutting can cost more than $1,000.

Of course, a number of variables play into these averages. The number and size of the trees on your property is the biggest variable to keep in mind. In addition, the health, type, and location of the tree also matter in determining how much hiring an arborist will actually cost.
