What is the work of an arborist?

It maintains trees and woody plants to ensure their healthy, safe and attractive condition, including chemical applications, repair, wiring, fertilization, watering, pruning and removal of any dead, sick or declining trees, or other woody plants. An arborist studies the structure and function of trees. Things like growth, cultivation, reactions to pruning, diseases, decompartmentalization of decomposition and all aspects of tree surgery. Arbolists are landscape architects who specialize in planting, maintaining and removing trees or woody plants.

Arbolists use their physical climbing skills and knowledge of soil and tree biology to grow and maintain trees for landscaping companies, private customers or government organizations. An arborist maintains trees and shrubs by pruning and pruning, to make sure they don't interfere with public works such as power lines, roads, or sidewalks. The services of an arborist can also be used to improve the appearance, health or value of trees. Arborists can work with job titles such as tree trimmer, tree climber, land worker, or line cleaning foreman.

The arborists take care of the trees by fertilizing them, pruning and maintaining them. They plant trees and usually do everything they can to care for them throughout their life cycle. They are asked to rescue trees if there are any problems, particularly if there is a major phenomenon or tree disease in a given community. This is a specialty that is resorted to, especially in times of need.

Not only are arborists responsible for the health of the trees they own, but they also help ensure the safety of the people who live and work there. They are certified to perform work that may be hazardous to untrained people, such as climbing trees to prune large, potentially unstable branches. Depending on where they are employed, they may also be responsible for climbing trees (often with ropes) and some trees may become very large. Safety when climbing a tree is a necessity, so those who climb trees are also highly trained in this area.

Arbolists are also sometimes called tree surgeons, as they not only have to remove dead branches and prune a tree when necessary, but also monitor the health of the trees under their care and recommend treatment. An arborist is responsible for the welfare of trees. They implement the planting, cultivation, maintenance and removal of trees. They can also be the point of contact for the sale of trees.
