Contacting an Arborist
If you have a concern about your tree’s health, you may want to contact an arborist for assistance. Arborists are professionals who care for trees and other woody plants. There are two types of professional arborists: certified and consulting.
Certified arborists are equipped to offer planting, pruning, transplanting, fertilizing, monitoring and treatment for insects and diseases and tree removal. Consulting arborists specialize in diagnosing problems, recommending treatments, tree appraisals and suggesting where to obtain competent tree service.
