Top Arborist related questions

What is an arborist?

An arborist is a highly experienced and formally trained expert in tree health and vegetation management. Arborists review existing landscaping and gardens to determine whether any pests or diseases are present, whether there are risks to people or property, and can also help proactively plan new gardens.

What are some common tree problems arborists can help with?

An arborist frequently works with trees that may be diseased or overrun by pests. They also help find solutions to problems like dead or dying branches that pose a falling risk, and trees that have grown too close to power lines.

What’s the difference between arborists and tree loppers?

An arborist inspects a tree and its surroundings for safety issues or evidence of pests and diseases. They develop solutions that consider future tree growth as well as personal and property safety. A tree lopper usually considers space or safety issues with individual trees and trims or removes them as required.

What training and certifications does an arborist need?

An arborist can operate under supervision after completing a Certificate III in Aboriculture. However, any arborist providing specialised advice through arborist reports needs to have studied the Diploma of Aboriculture to meet the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) Level 5.

How long does it normally take for an arborist to complete a report?

An arborist report can take 7-10 days to complete due to the comprehensive nature of the report. Your arborist will use aerial and onsite inspections to assess tree health and identification, current and proposed safety concerns, and any factors that may affect potential removal..

How much does an arborist cost?

An arborist on Airtasker will usually cost between $140-$290. But this will depend on the size and complexity of the job - whether it’s a simple tree assessment or a comprehensive report.

What do arborist services include?

Arborists are often referred to as tree surgeons because of the intricate nature of their work and their focus on tree health when making recommendations. They consider all proposed outcomes before offering a solution that’s suitable for the situation. Here are some common arborist services and what you can expect:

Arborist report

An arborist report is usually needed to support council applications. You might be applying to council for a development approval (DA) or for approval to remove trees from your property. This is really important because removing trees can’t be done without council approval! Your arborist will check for pests and disease, any structural defects, and identify species of plants and trees present before writing their report. They’ll make written recommendations in the report, supported by photos and evidence. This will accompany your application and assist council in their decision making process.

Tree trimming, pruning & removal

Tree trimming and pruning is necessary to maintain the health and safety of many trees. An arborist makes sure your trees are pruned or maintained in a way that enables them to flourish and grow afterwards. Trees may be trimmed or pruned for safety reasons, or to ensure their long-term viability. If a tree is diseased or dying, removal may be the only option. Your arborist consultant will consider all factors before making a recommendation for removal.

Annual tree inspection

An annual tree inspection is a proactive way to ensure the safety and longevity of the trees in your garden. Your arborist will thoroughly inspect trees and vegetation on your property to identify current and preventable concerns. They will then provide guidelines for maintenance or an action plan to rectify any problems, so your garden can continue to thrive.

Garden mapping

Garden mapping can be used in any garden but it’s especially useful for heritage listed gardens. Your arborist will prepare a catalogue that identifies species types and locations for each tree or shrub in your garden. You might use mapping to help manage your garden or plan future landscaping changes.
