Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I hire a Certified Arborist from County Arborists?
Arborists specialize in the care and preservation of individual trees. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns as maintained trees will add a very mature and attractive look to a property. Poorly maintained and hazardous trees that are not addressed can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially at heights, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done by those that have proper equipment and training.
My tree is too big, what should I do?
All trees are naturally intended to grow. This is often over looked when selecting a tree at the nursery. When a tree becomes "to large” we strongly discourage aggressive reduction of height or ‘topping’ as it will destroy the vitality and natural shape. Instead we suggest an extensive structural pruning that will potentially achieve the same goals. However to avoid this all together, be very careful in selecting which tree to plant. Ensure that is fits the space you have for it. To get a better idea seeking professional advice is a great idea.
I would like to care for my trees but my budget it tight; what should I do?
First trees that are hazardous should be addressed. Then preventative maintenance and plant healthcare. This will avoid potentially dangerous trees in the future. Finally aesthetic tree care should be considered last. Consulting with a Certified Arborist is a great idea to get a idea of where to start.
