We also have certified and fully educated arborists on staff of provide counsel or assistance. These individuals are trained in the science and art of planting and maintaining of individual trees and their needs. An arborist can help you by performing a tree audit and advising you the best possible course of action when planning for how you want a tree maintenance service to assist you. They can tell you if a tree is beyond being salvage or if it can be saved. They often advise during tree surgery, can determine the best way to cable or brace tree branches to grow the way you desire, tell you which co-dominant leader to cut off, predict which branches might one day grow into troublesome nuisances, and teach you how to care for trees yourself in minor ways. Arborists are also trained in working on trees, which can be dangerous work if you're not properly trained to do so.
