If you are searching Google for “certified arborist phoenix” you are likely in need of a tree care professional. An arborist, or tree surgeon, specializes in the care of individual types of trees. They are trained and equipped to provide proper tree care, and are knowledgeable about the needs of each variant of tree. Choosing an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Trees that are cared for properly add visual appeal to your landscape and increase the value of your property. Trees which are not cared for properly can be an eyesore, or worse a serious liability. Removing or pruning trees can be dangerous work, especially for the larger trees. For this reason the work should only be done by arborists and tree care teams that are trained properly and equipped to do the job safely.

If you are considering a new tree for your landscape and want to know the best tree for a certain spot, an arborist can help you. Additionally if you already have a tree in mind, they can give you guidance for your specific landscape factoring in the daily sunlight requirements for the specific tree variety you are interested in planting.
Tree pruning is an art, and understanding which items to prune to create a healthy and symmetrical tree takes training and planning. The pruning should be done with the goal to make the tree look visually pleasing, be healthy, and be safe for your landscape. In nature it might not matter if a limb falls off on the forest floor, it is part of nature. Nature is great, until it drops a limb on your shiny new car while it is sitting in the shade. Invest in your tree care, and your trees will care for you.
There are 7 conditions that will influence the need to remove individual limbs from a tree. Limbs that require pruning are those that:
- Have been damaged in storms
- Will reduce wind resistance
- Increase light penetration
- Insect infested or diseased
- Interfere with buildings or power lines
- Block sidewalks or streets
- Are weak, decaying, or dead and pose risk
Emergency Tree Care
Strong winds and storms can cause the limb of a tree to fail. Serious storms might also cause an entire tree to fall. In residential or commercial spaces these trees are prone to falling on cars, buildings, other trees, or fences. Large trees are incredibly heavy and can pose a serious safety issue. They should be removed by skilled, trained, and equipped teams. If the tree is resting on a surface and it is cut improperly it can cause more damage, or it could shift and injure someone.
Trees are the centerpieces of many landscapes. They are the tallest and widest elements of the visual appearance of our properties’ landscapes. While it is the last resort, there are times when tree removal is the best option. Your arborist can help you decide if a tree should be doctored, or removed. The conditions under which a tree should be removed are:
- Posing unacceptable risk
- Dying or dead
- Crowding more desirable trees
- Occupying space meant for new construction
- Causing obstructions which pruning cannot correct
- To be replaced with more appropriate specimens
