Benefits of Hiring Certified Arborists

By: albertaarb - October 28, 2013

Trees are a major asset for a property owner. Hiring certified arborists will ensure that your trees are pruned properly, potential health issues with your trees are diagnosed and future liability concerns are addressed. Proper maintenance can extend the life of your trees and limits the liability a damaged tree presents to the public.

What are Certified Arborists?

A certified arborist is educated and trained in the care of trees. They provide knowledgeable input on all aspects of properly caring for, and safely removing trees on your property.  As professionals, they will have the equipment and experience necessary to avoid damage to your property, and the surrounding public, when providing tree removal services.

What Type of Services does an Arborist Provide?

Arborists can provide all types of tree maintenance services. These services include pruning, tree removal, stump removal, planting of trees and many other services involving tree management.


  • Removal of limbs interfering with buildings, roofs, chimneys, and gutters
  • Removing limbs overhanging or obstructing sidewalks, streets and driveways
  • Thinning of branches to increase penetration of light
  • Removal of damaged branches caused from weather or disease
  • Thin out branches that are rubbing on each other

Tree Removal

  • Dead or dying trees
  • Potentially hazardous trees

Tree Planting and Health Care

  • Preventive insect control and disease maintenance
  • Fertilization
  • Soil aeration
  • Planting specific trees most suitable to location

Meeting with an arborist, prior to making a hiring decision, is a good way to become aware of exactly how an arborist can help you. You may not be aware, as a homeowner or business owner, of numerous details related to tree care and tree removal.

For instance, trees damaged from adverse weather conditions may not need to be destroyed. Many times, a severely damaged tree can be saved by being braced or cabled. A professional arborist can make the difference when you are committed to saving a beautiful tree that you have grown to love.

Homeowners might also be surprised to learn that their insurance carrier may cover tree damage. The Insurance Bureau of Canada reports that, depending on the policy, claims on damaged trees and landscaping may be covered against loss. The coverage amounts are affected by the amount of insurance carried on your home and the cause of the damage.

Insurance and Tree Maintenance

The greatest concern when employing a tree maintenance professional is proof of insurance. Pruning trees and removal of trees are large projects that come with even larger risks. The risk of accidents involving private property or human lives is minimized when working with experienced professionals having access to proper equipment. Confirmed proof of required insurance coverage must be requested from anyone that performs this type of activity on your property.
