Arborist or Landscaper

 In Blog

To many people, arborists and landscapers seem almost the same, so a lot of homeowners might think they could hire either of them to have the yard work done. Do they really do the same performance on your yard? The answer is ‘heck, no’.

Landscapers do lawn care, lawn irrigation installation and maintenance, garden bed installation and maintenance, mulching, etc. However, traditional arborists do tree trimming, tree removal, tree pruning, stump grinding, and anything involving mature tree care.

It is very important to distinguish between arboriculture and landscaping because it could lead to hazardous accidents to your property or to the workers. You said What? Hazardous accidents? That is correct. The tools that arborists and landscapers use are significantly different. Landscapers might not be trained to use tools properly for arboricultural jobs. Professional arborists, on the other hand, must be trained to use chain saws, chippers, and other unique equipment, that landscapers generally do not encounter. Furthermore, certified and reputed tree companies have reliable insurance to cover accidents, should anything happen.
