Everything You Need to Know About Arborists in Edmonton!
In essence, “arborist” can be considered a fancy word for a tree doctor. A person who trains to become an arborist knows about every aspect of tree care, from planting and cultivating to diagnosing a tree when it’s sick.
Biology, chemistry, forestry, and botany are all essential bases of knowledge that an arborist will have to draw from in addition to a wealth of personal experience. Professional arborists are experts at difficult landscaping problems and may work for nurseries or tree care firms. They can also, however, work with local governments to make sure we’re doing everything we can to take care of our local trees and other plant-life.
At All Season Tree Service, we offer the services of local arborists to everyone in the Edmonton, Sherwood Park and surrounding areas. Some of the primary tasks that are ideal for an arborist include:
- Diagnosing and treating sick trees. There are a lot of threats out there for a tree. When it has to deal with fungi, insect invaders and disease, a tree can use a little help sometimes. An arborist can tell you which kinds of problems are likely in the Edmonton area and let you know the best course of action to protect or save your tree.
- Deciding what trees are best for the Edmonton climate and how to best plant them. Knowing which kinds of trees will thrive in a Canadian climate can sometimes be difficult. An arborist can give your expert advice about what trees are best for your home and where they should be placed.
- Pruning trees. Basic garden pruning jobs are usually easy and enjoyable for the average homeowner to do. If you have an unusual plant or a large or dangerously tall trees that requires some skill to prune, an arborist will be qualified to help.
- Supporting trees’ growth. Sometimes it’s not some kind of disease that hurts a tree but the way that it has grown. Arborists can also guide the growth of a tree to make sure that it remains strong and healthy.
- Tree removal and stump grinding. When a tree does have to come down, it usually leaves a stump and an extensive system of roots behind it. An arborist can help you figure out how best to deal with stumps and roots to protect your yard from unnecessary damage. They can also advise you on when to replant and which trees would be an ideal replacement.
