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.

"Brian and the guys were at our house yesterday to top and prune 5 trees and remove another. First, they arrived in the 1-hour window of time that I was given, which is unheard of, especially since ours was their 3rd job of the day. Brian has a wonderful easy-going personality and didn't try to rush us into making quick decisions when some questions arose about the extent of pruning for a few of the trees. He discussed each tree with me before any work was started and gave me insight on what was best for the health of each. The whole team was pleasant, efficient, and did a fabulous job!"

"This was more than simple tree trimming. This was for huge oak tree branches over our house. Chris and his team are fast, professional and considerate. Would strongly recommend. They made a daunting task look simple. True professionals. Also, they thoroughly cleaned the area...even left our new lawn undamaged. Excellent crew. "

"I was very impressed with the knowledge of the tree service personnel. I was very concerned about the tree being trimmed and did not want it to be damaged. The staff arrived on time with all the necessary safety items to help prevent my tree from getting damaged by disease. The job went smooth and they left the area very clean . I would definately use them in the future to keep my trees trimmed away from the house."

"I was very impressed with Adan, Marvin, and their team. They removed 8 large trees from a property I'd just purchased, in addition to pruning two others. It was a big job, but the guys did it carefully and right. When I found a safety hazard in a rotting stump, they came back and fixed it super-fast with no hassle. Also, the price was right. I've worked with several tree companies before, but ADM will be the first people I call for tree services in the future."

"Michael and his team were great. They gave us the best quote out of everybody that came to our house that gave us a quote. When we told him we wanted to keep the wood and have it cut up and stacked in the backyard they told us they would do that at no extra charge. Other quotes we got charged us 600 bucks to cut and stack the wood in the backyard for us. The guys worked really quick and fast and it took them less than half a day to get a huge tree cut down. When we asked them not to grind the stump out Michael said he would not charge us for the grinding of the stump which was quoted in our bill. He adjusted the price down and even made the cost of the tree trimming and tree removal even cheaper."
