What is a Consulting Arborist?*
Discover the tree expert of tree experts.
Consulting Arborists are the preeminent authorities on matters related to trees—ensuring the safety, health, and preservation, of trees in our natural surroundings. Both homeowners and industry professionals will find a number of different reasons to hire a Consulting Arborist to achieve their objectives.
Trees in our developed environment present a challenge, requiring careful planning and vigilant maintenance. The shared public trust of governments, businesses and homeowners is to ensure that trees grow, thrive and remain safe. When a problem occurs—if a tree causes damage or becomes a public safety hazard—a source for advice and mediation is often needed. This is the role of the Consulting Arborist: to bring a comprehensive, objective viewpoint to the diagnosis, appraisal and evaluation of arboricultural issues.
