Why Do You Need Tree Care Experts?
Did you know that America has a national tree? With Congress approval and the president signing the bill, the mighty oak got its position as the national tree in 2004. The oak is a tree known for its endurance, its longevity, and its strength. If a tree was to symbolize wisdom it would definitely be the oak.
All these reasons won over the hearts of many and they voted for the oak as their national tree.
In Florida, there are over 19 species of oak trees with some of the most common being the Bluejack Oak, the Bluff Oak, and the Black Oak trees. You can plant oaks in your home but they need good tree care. Nevertheless, you can get a professional to do this for you.
You might be asking, do I really need a professional?
Tree care is something many have done from when they were young as they were taught by their parents. But with many home activities, DIY-ing can only take you so far. You might know how to prune your trees, but there are different pruning styles meant to achieve different goals. And this is where a professional comes in.
You might just be doing routine maintenance or it could be something more serious like a storm damage issue. Either way, it’s important to know the right steps to take when maintaining your landscape and trees for safety reasons as well as aesthetic purposes. One of the most common mistakes people make is trying to cut down branches or trim trees on their own without the proper training and equipment necessary. It’s so easy for an accident to happen if you don’t know what you are doing! That’s why we recommend hiring a professional arborist instead of taking matters into your own hands.

For tree care, the professional is called an arborist.
Who are arborists?
Arborists are tree, shrub, and other woody plant experts who have researched how to cultivate, manage, care for, and diagnose them. They are experts in all types of trees and shrubs and can provide expert guidance on how to cultivate and develop trees.
An ISA arborist certification is a nongovernmental, voluntary process by which individuals can document their base of knowledge. Certification provides a measurable assessment of an individual’s knowledge in the competencies needed for proper tree care.
When a professional becomes an ISA Certified Arborist®, they should be recognized by their peers and the public as a tree care professional who has attained a generally-accepted level of knowledge in areas such as tree biology, diagnosis, maintenance practices, safety, and other subject and practice areas within the tree care profession Read more from Trees Are Good…
Can an arborist help with my tree’s nutrition?
A tree needs a consistent diet of nutrients if you want it to grow into a healthy tree. You should treat your tree like you treat a young one or a pet, they need all the nutrients they can get to grow into mighty trees that can withstand any diseases.
Each tree has its own set of preferred soil conditions: Some prefer acidic soil; some prefer alkaline soil; some thrive in clay; others thrive in sand. Before you dump a bunch of fertilizer or other organic matter into your soil, do a little research about your particular tree to determine your tree’s needs. It is possible to over-fertilize your soil, so you should do a soil test to check your soil’s condition and determine if and how to amend it. It’s best to get one from a lab or extension service, but in a pinch, you can find a home testing kit at most garden centers. If you have questions or concerns, consider hiring an arborist for fertilization and soil conditioning. A professional tree care provider can help you examine your soil and determine how to amend it to best suit your tree. Read more from TreeNewal…
