Benefits of Working with a Certified Arborist

There are a lot of great reasons to hire a certified arborist to take care of the trees on your property. Arborists, if you haven’t heard of them before, are essentially tree surgeons. To become an arborist you have to take a lot of courses in a variety of subjects, including forestry, ecology, soil science, and plant pathology, amongst others. To be an arborist who is also certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), you must have years of experience and take additional courses to ensure you’re keeping up with the latest scientific discoveries and best practices for tree care.

As certified arborists, we at Tree Works are pleased to provide services ranging from diagnosing sick trees to simple tree trimming in Coquitlam. With our extended service area including properties in Burnaby, North Vancouver and anywhere in between, we’d like to let you know about just a few of the benefits to hiring an arborist.

Get the Best Care for Your Trees

There’s a lot more to being a certified arborist than just tree trimming (though that’s important too). Throughout the Lower Mainland, we are lucky enough to live in an area of the world that has a rich and varied ecology. That means that there are a lot of different species of trees, and each of them needs slightly different care. By hiring a certified arborist, you know you’re getting the best care for the trees on your property.


Although arborists make it look effortless, tree care can often be a dangerous job. A lot of powerful equipment is involved and they sometimes need to be used at great heights. Trying to remove a tree, for instance, requires experience and precision to do safely. An arborist has been trained and certified in just such dangerous procedures. More than safely doing the job, however, arborists are also specialists in assessing how safely your trees are placed in your yard. A tree that is growing awkwardly, for example, may be a candidate for being blown over in a strong storm, causing damage to your property and putting your family at risk. It’s an arborist’s job to know what the safest way to proceed will be both for you and your trees.

Insurance and Property Value

The safety of your property and health of your property’s trees can also be a financial issue. Having a dangerous or sick tree in your yard can lower your property value and be an issue for insurance companies. Similarly, if you choose to remove a tree yourself and something goes wrong, this can cause big problems when it comes to determining liability. Having a professional take care of the problem is almost always the safest and most cost-effective solution.
