Why hire a qualified arborist?

An arborist by definition is someone who is trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees. Certification provides a measurable assessment of an individual’s knowledge and competence required to provide proper tree care.

Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well cared for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work and should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.

Advanced Tree Services Arborists all hold New Zealand Certification, U.K. Certification and/or Certification with the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). The ISA is a scientific and educational organisation devoted to the dissemination of information in the care and preservation of shade and ornamental trees. ISA Certified Arborists are individuals who have achieved a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care through experience and by passing a comprehensive examination developed by some of the world’s leading experts on tree care. ISA Certified Arborists must also continue their education to maintain their certification. Therefore, they are always up to date with the latest research and techniques in arboriculture.

One of the best methods to use in choosing an arborist is to educate yourself on some of the basic principles of tree care. Visit our tree care tips pages for further information about trees and their care.

I would like to say how pleased I am with the work the team did on site. . . . The foreman was very helpful and gave me his expert advice (which I heeded). I couldn’t believe the change when I came home – there were no branches, hedge clippings. In fact I think the garden looked even tidier! The wood was nicely stacked in piles under the trees they came from and this allowed me to easily clear it away into the woodshed that weekend. The foreman took ownership of the job and understood the outcome I was looking for and so was able to do a fabulous job, making good decisions on my behalf while I was at work. As the garden has settled in to its new look, I am seeing the house and garden anew. There is so much more light coming on to our lawn and our grass will be healthier as a result. The crew did a fabulous job.
