5 Reasons You Should Hire a Professional Arborist in the Twin Cities Region

When hiring a tree care professional, ensure they’re certified as arborists by the International Society of Arboriculture. The education, work experience, testing, and application process required to become ISA certified is rigorous and guarantees they’re qualified for whatever you need to be done.

Find out what being qualified means by reading the following five reasons you should hire a professional arborist:

Preserve Your Personal Safety

Tree removal is dangerous, and the less expertise you have in arboriculture, the greater that risk becomes. Trees are hefty and don’t always fall when or where you expect them to. A tree falling in the wrong direction before you’ve warned people below or before you’re safely out of harm’s way could result in severe injuries or worse.

Avoid Property Damage

Following complex but essential safety tips when pruning or removing trees does more than protect everyone’s personal safety; it also prevents property damage. Losing control of a large branch you’re attempting to prune could cause it to land on the roof next door, seriously damaging your neighbor’s home.

Arborists are trained to detect hidden structural instability, like storm damage that can be undetectable to the untrained eye. Understanding what’s going on inside a tree allows them to predict which trees or parts of trees will likely fall in the next storm or during pruning or removal.

Ensure Proper Tree Care

A professional arborist will protect the health of the trees on your property and your home and landscaping investment. Trees can get sick, and an arborist can help maintain and prevent health problems in plants and trees from developing.

Overgrown trees full of crooked branches and dead brush will grow weaker in this condition, which also encourages pests to move in, and primes the plant for disease. Healthy plants are more attractive and better able to weather storms, pests, and diseases.

Already weakened trees threaten the health of the plants and people around them and need to be adequately supported or cut down. A certified arborist knows how to make that call.

Benefit From Professional Equipment

Trimming or removing large or damaged trees requires the proper tools and equipment. It’s time-consuming and costly for homeowners to stock up on and learn how to use all the gear and supplies a professional arborist must do their work efficiently while preventing accidents and injury.

Arborists have trimming equipment, cutting equipment like hand saws and prunes, climbing gear, rigging equipment like carabiners and pulleys, steel cables and braces, safety gear, and more.

Boost Curb Appeal

Proper pruning beautifies trees and helps them become or stay strong and healthy. A professional arborist understands when and how to trim and prune to encourage growth, promote a robust infrastructure, and help the tree resist weather damage. They can identify diseased, dying, or dead branches to prune or branches that rub together.

An arborist can also open a tree canopy to brighten your yard without sacrificing healthy trees and create an environment that helps trees flourish. Even with minimal landscaping, a yard full of healthy trees is impressive and shows investment in the property, boosting your home’s curb appeal.
