What you need to know before hiring an arborist

Trees can be tricky business, take too much off the top and you might as well cut it off at the bottom. Luckily, arborists are experts on how to deal with your trees.

But what exactly does an arborist do? Arborists deal with trees from top to bottom. Whether it’s pruning, lopping, or cutting the tree down completely, an arborist will be able to do it for you safely and efficiently.

Fortunately for you, we’ve pulled together a list of commonly asked questions about arborists.

Why do I need an arborist?

If you have a garden, you already know how big an undertaking it can be to maintain your trees. From pruning to tidying up, it’s a long process. So why not simplify it and bring in a certified professional who can take care of the whole process for you.

Overgrown trees can be a danger, not only to your property but to themselves as well. Falling branches can cause irreversible damage to the tree, as they can expose the core of the tree to disease and infections. Trees are at their most vulnerable when they’ve just lost a branch, but this risk can be minimised with regular pruning using sharp tools.

How do I know if I can trust my Arborist?

Arborists have to pass qualifications before they can call themselves a professional. This means they must be able to remove trees and deal quickly and safely, and all the debris, without damaging the rest of your garden.

If you haven’t worked with a Perth arborist before and you’re wondering if you can trust them, have a look at their online reviews. This will give you a better idea of how they operate and what previous clients think about them.

Are arborists expensive?

Arborists can be surprisingly affordable. With best practices in place, leading Perth arborists can provide a reasonably priced service. Many also provide an obligation free quote, so if you’re not happy with the price, you don’t have to employ them.

Does hiring an arborist really make a difference?

Hiring an arborist can make a huge difference for your trees. Pruning and lopping can not only make your trees look infinitely better but can promote healthy growth and help stave off diseases and infections.

When is the right time to prune my trees?

Different trees need to be pruned at different times of the year. Many trees like to be pruned in winter when the sap is flowing slower. Other trees like to be pruned in the summer, to encourage new growth in the following year. Whatever sort of tree you have, your local arborist will be able to tell you when the best time to carry out pruning.
