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 the 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 the council in their decision-making process.

Tree trimming, pruning & removal

Tree trimming and pruning are 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, tree 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 catalog 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.

I need an arborist (Level 5) report to support the removal of a eucalypt tree. The tree drops massive limbs in the back yard, and presents imminent life danger to my children.
