Arborist vs tree service

Let’s clear the difference between these two.

Tree service only refers to a business that offers various plant care-related services. 

An arborist is a professional who went through many hours of training and experience in the cultivation and study of trees.

What is an arborist?

An arborist is a professional in the field of arboriculture, which studies the cultivation and management of individual trees, shrubs, vines and other perennial woody plants.

Or said in a simpler way, arborists, sometimes also called tree doctors are tree professionals that maintain the trees for the safety of people and surrounding properties as well as ensure the health of the trees themselves. They are trained in the care and maintenance of trees, shrubs and other plants.

Why hire an ISA certified arborist

ISA arborist certification is a non-governmental voluntary process that ensures that tree professionals have the necessary knowledge and competence for tree care.

ISA arborists undergo continuous education and should have knowledge in tree biology, diagnosis, maintenance, safety and other areas in the tree-related industries.

How to choose the right tree service or arborist professional

Check for ISA arborist credentials. ISA-certified arborists and ISA board-certified master arborists have the experience to cover many aspects of plant care.

Confirm their membership in professional organizations such as the international society of arboriculture ISA, tree care industry association TCIA.

Always ask for proof of insurance, local permits and licences.

Get more quotes and estimates to put them into perspective so you can make the right choice.

Watch out for bargains and deals that are too good to be true. Arborists work in close proximity to your property and tree falling to the wrong side can cause you a lot of financial stress.

Sign a contract that is clear on the scope of work and the price.
