Recent high winds have caused many trees to fall or to be severely damaged in our area. Carpenter Costin crews have been called on to remove trees from houses, driveways, yards and to evaluate trees with structural damage such as cracked branches and leaders.
A Certified Arborist is the best person to inspect your trees for hazardous or dangerous branches, or damage caused by wind, freezing and thawing temperatures, structural weakness or snow load. Certified Arborists can educate and guide you, not just in emergency winter situations, but in the care and maintenance of all of your trees and shrubs throughout all four seasons.
Massachusetts Certified Arborists and those certified by the International Society of Arboriculture are individuals who have achieved a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care, through formal education, at least three years of experience and have passed a comprehensive examination. They are also required to continue their education in order to maintain their certification, ensuring their knowledge is updated on the latest arboriculture techniques.
Certified Arborists, years ago called tree surgeons, are trained to :
- Recognize safety issues and make recommendations regarding structural problems in trees, such as weak branch unions, dangerous leaders, and other potentially hazardous concerns.
- Evaluate the overall health of your trees and shrubs
- Diagnose insect or disease problems and advise on treatment strategies
- Avoid taking down trees that can be salvaged
Consulting with a Certified Arborist will give you the assurance that your trees are safe and healthy.
