Posted on January 9, 2017

For property owners throughout the Newark and surrounding areas, tree care can become complicated, particularly when problems arise such as disease, storm damage, or an infestation. A certified Arborist in Newark can address these issues and even help prevent them in the first place.

What is a Certified Arborist?

The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) issues certification to Arborists who pass a specialized examination, agree to a strict code of ethics, have verified experience in the industry, and continue to expand their education.

ISA Certified Arborists have extensive backgrounds and experience diagnosing, treating, and protecting all types of trees. The Code of Ethics each ISA certified Arborist must adhere to protects property owners against harmful practices and unnecessary procedures. Commonly, arborists may oversee a team of tree care professionals, to ensure each tree receives the care it needs to thrive, and to prevent future problems, like the spread of diseases among the trees in a space.

Advantage #1: Protect the Health of Your Trees

Ideally, your trees will continue to grow and thrive with minimum intervention. However, illnesses and harmful pests, such as the emerald ash borer, can invade. An ISA Certified Arborist will be able to identify the cause of the problem, recommend a treatment plan, and apply any necessary chemicals.

The emerald ash borer, for example, is a highly invasive pest that has devastated the ash tree populations of neighboring states and has recently been found in Delaware. Treatment can include injecting specialized chemicals directly into the tree’s base, but this can only be done by someone trained and licensed.

Advantage #2: Revitalize Struggling Trees

Certified Arborists, in addition to protecting your trees from pests and illness, can also identify causes of problems, such as a tree becoming root-bound, or getting insufficient sunlight. Something as simple as pruning at the wrong time of year can create major problems for some types of trees. When an Arborist views your property, he/she will be able to pinpoint where the problem most likely is, and make recommendations to improve the health and appearance of your trees

Advantage #3: Promote a Safe and Beautiful Landscape  

Trees are some of the most awe-inspiring features of our great earth. They provide us with clean air, cool shade, and are beautiful to look at. A certified Arborist will ensure that the trees on your property retain all their breathtaking glory. With practiced eyes, your Arborist may recommend relocating trees in favor of more appropriate options, or removing trees altogether if they pose a danger to your home or family.
