Why Your Trees Need Certified Arborists

In order to stay healthy and resilient against natural stressors such as weather, insects, and diseases, your trees need specialty care. Certified arborists are much more than just regular tree trimmers. Arborists are tree doctors that have extensive knowledge about the intricacies of tree health and how to properly care for them. To earn a certification in arboriculture, arborists must undergo rigorous training and prove that they have vast knowledge and experience in the field of arboriculture. Not all general tree trimmers are as knowledgeable or experienced with all aspects of tree care. That’s why it’s crucial to always have your trees cared for by a professionally-licensed arborist.

Hiring a certified arborist to care for your trees provides many benefits that aren’t available from general tree trimmers. No matter the type or size of your trees, Southwest Outdoor Services can provide quality care for all trees on your property. Our certified arborists have the experience and equipment needed to ensure your trees are healthy and able to thrive well year-round.

Safety Comes First

At Southwest Outdoor Services, we make you and your trees' safety our top priority. That's why we always sterilize and individually number all our equipment to prevent cross-contamination between trees.
