There are countless tree services in Northern Colorado. Many of them claim to have a certified arborist on staff in an attempt to lure more customers. But the word “arborist” shouldn’t just be thrown around blindly. The International Society of Arboriculture states that an arborist “is an individual trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees.” Not only are arborists knowledgeable about the needs of trees, but they also understand how to provide the proper care. Keep reading as we further explain what an arborist can do.

Pest and Disease Control

We’ve discussed at length the Emerald Ash Borer. That said, EAB isn’t the only tree pest in the region. Rest assured that an experienced tree doctor will work to eradicate damaging pest populations and keep trees healthy. Expect an arborist to determine if your tree is diseased and what to do to avoid removing the tree altogether.

Tree Trimming

Proper trimming/pruning promotes healthy growth, gets rid of any dead wood, and naturally protects the tree from pests. Plus, tree trimming allows your tree to withstand the extreme weather conditions we have here in Colorado. An arborist also knows to not perform excessive trimming, which is likely to damage the tree.

Tree Removal

A tree health expert should do everything in his or her power to save a tree. That said, tree removal is sometimes the only option. Still, don’t just assume that anybody can perform tree removal. Even one mistake can result in costly damage to the yard, your home, or neighboring properties. Then there’s the risk of serious injury for yourself and others in the area. You can feel comfortable knowing that an arborist has the proper skills and equipment to get the job done right the first time.

Deep Root Fertilization

We experience periods of drought far too often. Have you ever thought about the level of nutrients and water your trees are receiving? If not, then it’s a good idea to get in touch with a seasoned arborist. An arborist should be able to assess your trees and strengthen them through deep root fertilization. Essentially, your tree’s beauty and health will be protected thanks to a much-needed boost of species-specific nutrients and moisture.  

Emergency Tree Care

Heavy snow, high winds, and nasty thunderstorms can wreak havoc on the healthiest of trees. If you ever have to deal with the aftermath of fallen trees or limbs, be sure to get in touch with a local arborist for swift, quality service.
