What is an Arborist?
Arboriculture, or Urban Forestry, is the care of trees and shrubs in community settings.
Professional arborists are sought after for work throughout the entire country, Canada, Europe, and around the world. Arborists are trained, skilled, and committed to fostering a great appreciation of trees and promoting the sustainable practice of arboriculture.
Trees offer cultural and natural heritage benefits beyond production of wood products. Arborists pay close attention to aspects of plant health, pest and pathogen control, risk management, and aesthetic considerations in the professional practice of tree management.
Arborists are employed by cities and towns, utility companies, commercial tree care services, government agencies, industrial and public parks, college campuses, golf courses and arboretums. Career opportunities include climber, crew leader, commercial sales, community forester, manager and plant health diagnostician.
