A Certified Arborist is a specialist in the care of individual trees. Licensed Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care.
Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns.
Well-cared-for trees are attractive and trees can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work.
Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.
ANTI-TOPPING CAMPAIGN IS IN FULL FORCE!
Tree topping is the drastic removal, or cutting back, of large branches in mature trees, leaving large, open wounds which subject the tree to disease and decay. Topping causes immediate injury to the tree and ultimately results in early failure or death of the tree.
The Missouri Community Forestry Council has taken on the mission to educate the community about the negative effects of tree topping and encourage proper tree care!
