An Arborist Is Trained in the Art of the Trees
If a person holds the Certified Arborist title, it indicates that they have the training and passed the necessary tests to speak for the trees. Arborists are about more than just cutting trees down. Their job is primarily to help trees survive and thrive in natural and cultivated landscapes.
Some of the tasks that an Arborist is trained in include:
- Tree Identification
- Disease/Pest Identification
- Proper Pruning Techniques
- Plant Health Care
An Arborist Has the Right Equipment

They may have equipment designed to aid with tree care, including climbing equipment, ropes, safety gear, and more! They know how to handle complicated situations without damaging property.
- Tree Equipment: Climbing Gear, Knowledge of Proper Pruning Practices, Pole Pruners, Specialized Ropes for Climbing/Rigging, Chainsaws, and sometimes, Cranes.
- Safety Equipment: This includes Hard Hats, Ear Plugs, Knowledge of First Aid, Fire Extinguishers, and Eye Protection
