WHAT IS AN ARBORICULTURAL CONSULTANT?
Arboricultural Consultants have extensive experience maintaining trees; they also have a very good understanding of how design and installation affect the long term health, safety and prospects of trees.
These differing backgrounds can be seen in how trees are perceived. Arborists tend to look at a tree from the ground up, and from the inside out. We look at the root crown, then the trunk, then branch structure. We look at soil conditions, taper, branch distribution, angles of attachment, weight distribution, decay, cracks, conks, etc.
In addition we look for general indications of health, such as foliage density and color. Also, arborists tend to think in four dimensions - we're always looking ahead to anticipate the future form of the tree, problems the tree may pose or face as it grows, amenability to future pruning, encroachment, etc.
