A qualified arborist is a professional in the practice of arboriculture, which includes the management and maintenance of urban trees. Arborists generally focus on the health and safety of trees growing in the urban environment. Qualified Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide quality tree care.
The term arborist is not protected in New Zealand which means anyone can call themselves an arborist. It is your responsibility to ensure that you are hiring a professional with the skill and knowledge to perform your tree care in a sustainable way.
At Tree Care Auckland we have a strict policy that all work is only carried out by qualified arborists or foresters. This is our first step to ensure quality workmanship.
Trees that are well maintained by a qualified arborist provide numerous aesthetic and economic benefits, but also incur some costs. Investing in a tree’s maintenance from a qualified arborist will help you to achieve the desired benefits and it will increase your return on investment.
