An arborist is a trained professional specializing in the care and maintenance of trees, shrubs, and other woody plants. Often referred to as “tree surgeons,” arborists possess expertise in various aspects of tree care, including planting, pruning, diagnosing diseases, assessing tree health, and managing tree-related risks.

We asked the experts at Toronto Tree Service to share where you might find the need to work with an arborist and they suggested these common scenarios:

Tree Pruning and Trimming: When trees on your property require pruning or trimming to maintain their health, shape, or to remove hazardous branches, an arborist can assess the tree’s condition and perform the necessary work safely and effectively.

Tree Removal: If a tree is diseased, dead, or poses a safety hazard due to its proximity to structures or utility lines, an arborist can safely remove the tree using specialized equipment and techniques.

Diagnosing Tree Diseases and Pests: If you notice signs of disease or pest infestation in your trees, an arborist can diagnose the problem and recommend appropriate treatment options to restore the tree’s health and prevent further damage.

Tree Planting and Transplanting: When planting new trees or transplanting existing ones, an arborist can provide guidance on selecting suitable tree species, proper planting techniques, and optimal placement to ensure the tree’s long-term health and growth.

Tree Risk Assessment: If you’re concerned about the safety of trees on your property, especially after severe weather events or signs of structural instability, an arborist can conduct a thorough risk assessment to identify potential hazards and develop risk management strategies.

Tree Preservation during Construction: If you’re planning construction or landscaping projects that may impact existing trees, an arborist can develop tree protection plans and provide guidance on minimizing damage to trees’ root systems and canopies.

Consultation and Tree Care Advice: Whether you’re a homeowner, property manager, or municipal planner, consulting with an arborist can help you develop sustainable tree care plans, implement best practices for tree maintenance, and address any tree-related concerns effectively.

You might need the services of an arborist whenever you require professional expertise in the care, maintenance, and management of trees. Whether it’s pruning, diagnosing diseases, assessing risks, or planting new trees, Toronto Tree Service employs certified arborists that can provide valuable guidance and support to help you preserve and enhance the health and beauty of your landscape.
