Why you will want to hire an arborist
An arborist is cheaper for you and better for the environment
At first glance, a tree lopper may appear to be cheaper. However, a study conducted in 2012 showed that over a 9 year period choosing a tree lopper can actually end up costing you more.
In fact, you could end up paying over $2,650 more if you chose a tree lopper over an arborist. Here is a table from that study:
As you can see, it’s not just money you are saving. A tree taken care of by an arborist will be easier to maintain and look better than a tree worked on by a tree lopper.
The services of an arborist are better than a tree lopper
Did you know there’s a right way and a wrong way to prune a tree?
A tree lopper has neither the qualifications nor the certifications of an arborist; which is why they are under no obligation to carry out work with the long-term health of the tree in mind. This is why tree maintenance from a tree lopper will cost you more as time goes on (see table above for details).
And not only will it cost you more, long-term, to hire a tree lopper; their method is an untidy and unhealthy alternative to pruning trees.
When an arborist does tree pruning, the health and appearance of the tree are taken into consideration, as is the surrounding area.
