Many people may not understand the work they do, but the State of Ohio Arborists are extremely important.

Arborists have an advanced knowledge of trees, and they are trained to provide proper care for trees. Many property owners hire arborists to help them better care for their trees. Doing so then adds value to the property. Trees that are poorly maintained can be a liability for your property. Spending the money to hire an arborist needs to be looked at as an investment. In many situations, it is an investment that pays off significantly. If your trees will provide wood for Ohio furniture makers, they need to be in excellent condition.

In addition, pruning and caring for trees can be dangerous. Hiring an arborist can ensure the work is done safely and properly.

Arborists can also tell you when emergency care for a tree is needed. They can also advise you on when a tree needs to be removed.

In addition, arborists often plant trees. They can also recommend the proper tree species for different locations. Other services include consulting, bracing trees and providing risk assessments.

Arborists who achieve a certain level of knowledge and pass a comprehensive examination can become nationally certified. The examinations are developed by national leaders on tree care.
