Why choose an arborist? They're the 'professional standard' in the tree service industry. Arborists pass an extensive examination compiled by the leaders in tree care to obtain certification and must continue education to maintain it. This ensures they're current on the latest advancements in tree care. The budget minded customer usually thinks hiring an arborist will be more expensive than their local “Chop-your-tree” service. However, a crew with less knowledge and inadequate equipment takes more time than a knowledgeable company with high-end equipment, not to mention safety concerns. You can count on an arborist to get the job done right the first time, and within budget.
