When You See THIS, Hire an Arborist

By: albertaarb - March 9, 2016

If you're wondering when to hire an arborist, the answer is simple: as the International Society of Arboriculture explains, "Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees."

So when you are dealing with damaged trees or need to alter a tree on your property, you could probably benefit from an arborist's assistance. Here are some circumstances when you will definitely want a professional's help:

  1. Fallen tree limbs damaged by a storm.

    This kind of emergency situation calls for professional handling. You'll want an arborist to assess the situation and use the techniques necessary for safe removal of the fallen limbs. Fallen branches may require equipment that you don't have access to, and there may be hazards you don't know to watch out for. An arborist can prevent or minimize further damage to your property and keep you out of harm's way.

  2. Diseased or insect-infested wood on part of an otherwise healthy tree.

    Instead of hacking at a damaged tree yourself, consider having an expert assess the situation. Not only will an arborist be able to determine how much of the tree is salvageable, but they will also know how to remove the damaged wood safely, while harming as little of the remaining tree as possible.

  3. A large tree that needs to be removed.

    Removing any tree from your property without an arborist's help is not recommended, but when you have a large tree to cut down, it's definitely time to hire an arborist. Large trees can require additional equipment that isn't readily available to you, as well as pose more risks to surrounding yard features. You don't want a large tree falling on your fence! Hiring an arborist can prevent such embarrassing and dangerous accidents.
