An arborist can be thought of like a tree doctor. An arborist assesses trees and looks at the overall health of the tree before coming to a decision on how to treat or care for it. The arborist will perform highly skilled & specialist tree surgery work which includes trimming, pruning and felling.

Arborists provide expert tree analysis which includes looking at important factors such as safety hazards, tree safety, tree health, plannings to power lines, roads and paths. An arborist will assess and ensure the absolute safety of both the tree that is being worked on and the public.
