Arborist FAQs

Here's some tips & frequently asked questions on how to find the right arborist for your job

1. What is an arborist?

Arborists are tree professionals whose expertise involves the study of trees, shrubs, vines and other perennial woody plants in horticulture and dendrology. Tree arborists provide information to every query a client may pose about backyard tree practices. Arborists generally focus on the health and safety of plants and trees as well as harvesting wood.


2. What does an arborist do?

Arborists, also known as tree doctors, are tree professionals who maintain and tend plants and trees. Tree arborists also diagnose and solve individual tree issues such as nutritional problems, plant structures and diseases.

There are two separate branches of arborists. The first includes the practical arborists who work with trees that pose safety hazards with their engagement with surrounding infrastructure and powerlines. The second involves the purist arborists who specialise in the aesthetic values of pruning trees and gardens.


3. What is the difference between an arborist and a tree surgeon?

There are several factors that differentiate an arborist and a tree surgeon. The main task of an arborist is to identify tree diseases through professional inspection and then are required to treat these issues. Arborists also provide appropriate management advice that will help you maintain a healthy tree condition.

On the other hand, tree surgeons focus on the felling, pruning, stump grinding and removal of trees and stumps. Tree surgeons are professionals who value safety and provide precise judgement on these tasks.


4. Why should you hire an arborist?

Trees can add considerable value to your property, so it is beneficial to keep your trees healthy. However, some trees tend to pose safety hazards to households and public areas. A certified arborist can be hired for consultations, tree planting or transplanting, and providing better information on the best way to maintain your trees.


5. How much does an arborist cost?

An arborist consultation generally costs $75 to $100 for one to five trees, and $25 for each additional tree. A cost of $35 is also required to submit an application for council approval.
