Or: The difference between an arborist and a tree lopper

When it comes to receiving the right service for your needs, it has to come down what’s the best long-term solution for you.

When it comes to looking after your home, or business you may feel that a tree lopper is better because they are cheaper. But what you should keep in mind is the cliché “you get what you pay for.” That is, a tree lopper will be cheaper than a qualified, certified arborist, but you are getting what you pay for—an arborist will provide care that will last; whereas most tree loppers don’t think about the future health of your trees.

Another way to think about it is like this: you can pay $90 every 3 months or $160 every six months. Now on paper, most people will say, “Well, obviously $160 is cheaper in the long run.”

That’s not the buying behaviour of the average person.

Most people see “$90” and “$160” they don’t think about the long-term, they think about what’s in their pocket right now. And while such a consideration is important—it can be detrimental to your pocket in the long run.

Arborist vs. tree lopper

In the immediate, a tree lopper may sound cheaper, and they even appear to do the same level of work. However, a major difference between an arborist and a tree lopper is that an arborist ensures the long-term health of your tree.

This matters for you because it means you want need an arborist’s services as often—whereas due to the nature of tree lopping you could find yourself needing them more often. Then there is also the possibility their work kills or permanently damages your tree.

If you chose to work with a company like Arbor Operations, we ensure your place is as clean as it was when we arrived. And we don’t charge extra for it. If you would like any mulch left behind we are happy to accommodate you.

Why Arbor Operations is better for you

Saving money doesn’t always mean buying the cheapest thing today.

If you could receive a service for $160[i] that lasted more than twice as long as a service for $90 wouldn’t you rather pay a little more now? And if that $160 service meant your trees were kept in better health for longer, as opposed to being scarred and damaged, doesn’t that make the price even more valuable?

When considering the right service for what you need, call Arbor Operations today. We offer a range of services, from tree trimming and tree pruning, to tree removal and commercial maintenance.
