Why Hire an Arborist?

Being that this is the first blog post on our new website, I thought I would explain to you the reason why my wife and I thought it was so important to include the words "Certified Arborist" in the company name. We want to differentiate ourselves from some of the other people offering tree cutting services. People offering their tools and muscle for hire, without an education or credentials to back up their recommendations. It's easy to buy a chainsaw and put it to use, but we wanted our name to communicate the highest level of professionalism and dedication.

An ISA Certified Arborist is different than a tree cutter. An Arborist is a scientist, a detective, and an environmentalist. And being specialists in technical rope access for tree removals and pruning, I am also an industrial athlete and a back yard physics major. I understand the intense energies present in the upper heights of a mature tree canopy, and can mitigate the risk of that energy putting a hole in your roof or falling across your parked car. I am a biologist. I understand the connection and the interdependance of species in a trees ecosystem. This is what defines an Arborist.

Many of you have shrubs and trees on your property, and some are lucky enough to have mature trees that could possibly span your yard and beyond. Do you ever stay awake at night when it's windy and wonder if you will hear the crash of a tree branch falling down? Are there branches that didn't grow any leaves this year? Are your leaves yellowing and falling off early? Is there a fungal infection or insect infestation? The answers to those questions can be provided to you by an ISA Certified Arborist. From the smallest shrub to the tallest tree, LaRueTree Certified Arborists is here to provide you with the best tree service around.
