What Is a Certified Arborist?

An arborist is an individual who is 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.  Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well-cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability.
