What is the difference between an Arborist and a tree lopper?
Tree loppers are often untrained and not educated in correct pruning techniques. They are therefore unable to make informed decisions or give educated advice about your trees. Tree lopping is often sold as a “quick fix” for tree prob-lems but those so called “quick fixes” invariably create more problems than they fix. Tree that are lopped are ex-tremely likely to develop structural faults and become a hazard. Tree loppers are not qualified trained Arborists.
What insurance should an Arborist have?
