Choose a Certified Arborist for Your Valuable Trees
Why use a Certified Arborist to care for your trees?
Spraying for insect infestations, particularly in tall trees requires a large pump with adequate pressure

One may argue that a Tree Trimming service will get the job done, however while both Certified Arborists and Tree Trimmers typically offer pruning and removal services, only Arborists are trained and educated to protect tree health and properly care for and plant trees. An Arborist is specially trained in diseases of Trees and can often diagnose and treat diseases to save your trees.
Likewise there are differences between Horticulturists and Arborists. Horticulturists are generalists working with all sorts of plant life whereas Arborists specialize in the health and care of only trees and shrubs.
Landscapers and Arborists offer different types of tree services. The two professions can be complementary but are not interchangeable. Landscapers typically care for lawns and ornamental floral and shrubbery plantings and are not trained in dealing with diseases or pest infestations particular to trees nor do they typically have equipment necessary to deal with large trees. Certified Arborists are professionals specializing in caring for shrubs and trees having been trained in the care, cultivation, diseases, nutrition and predatory insects of all tree species in the area they serve. A Certified Arborist will have the expertise to diagnose issues and you can rest assured will counsel the best course of action and have the necessary equipment to handle any job properly. For example in spraying for insect infestations, typically Certified Arborists utilize a sprayer delivering 35 gallons per minute while landscapers typically use a sprayer delivering10 gallons per minute obviously for large trees the higher pressure is necessary, the lower pressure is fine for lawns, and small shrubs. In order for spraying for predatory insects to be effective the foliage must be adequately saturated.
