An arborist is, by definition, a tree surgeon. A tree surgeon is the person with the learned skills to be able to safely remove, trim, and prune a tree; identify and plant different tree species; also treat trees that are diseased with infestations. Most arborists attend a college and pass a written exam to obtain their accreditation. Also, in the industry there are many highly skilled arborists who gained their skills through working in the tree services industry for multiple years.
A tree service company is a company that employs arborists along with stump removing experts and certified pesticide applicators to provide services for both commercial and residential properties. All tree service companies offer tree removal, tree trimming and tree pruning. Larger tree services are able to offer a larger variety of services, including: hazardous removals, tree planting, inspections of diseased trees, pesticide application for infected trees, arborists reports, stump grinding and removal, tree cabling, tree transplanting, commercial tree services, lot-clearing, 24-hour response storm damage and deep root feeding.
What is the differences between all the tree service companies found around?
The tree service industry is filled with companies of different sizes and skill sets. Large tree service companies hire numerous arborists and are normally located in Toronto, Mississauga, Oakville and Brampton. On the other hand, most smaller tree service companies consist of independent arborists, and could be found in the smaller towns around the Greater Toronto Area, such as in Markham, Richmond Hill, Vaughn, Burlington and Caledon. However, location does not necessarily reflect on the tree service’s size of operation. Smaller companies that only consists of an arborist and his screw, mostly would not be able to properly handle large trees or a high number of trees at one time. Regularly, only the larger companies would have the necessary trucks and machinery to be able to handle the larger projects.
The majority of larger tree services operate year around, regardless of the winter weather. Smaller arborist companies prefer to cease operations until spring time. When looking for a tree service company in the winter time, be certain they are in full operations.
Although arborists and tree services are a necessary part of any urban city or town, arboristry remains an obscure profession. We live amidst millions of trees, some are in forests but many are on our streets and backyards. Every community needs tree services to plant, maintain and remove trees when deemed necessary.
