Trees beautify and enrich our lives throughout the year with their variety of forms, flowers, fruits, seasonal leaf colors, and interesting bark. They provide oxygen and cooling shade, and they filter out some pollutants from the air. Trees deflect noise and wind, block unwanted views, and protect the soil from erosion. They can also reduce rain runoff by capturing and holding rainwater on the leaves and branches before it reaches the ground. Trees have even been found to have positive psychological effects such as reducing stress, reducing crime rates, and reducing recovery time for hospital patients.
Arboriculture is both an art and a science. It combines skill and craft with knowledge and fact. Thus, a foundation for the practice of arboriculture is a thorough understanding of how trees grow.
Our Floridian Arborist aims to protect and enhance the quality of life for arbors, and wild animals by improving the appearance, health, and value of trees which ensures they don't interfere with public works like power lines, roads, or sidewalks.
Like physicians, arborists use knowledge of tree growth and development to diagnose problems, assess potential, and prescribe treatments. And, just as in medicine, prescription before diagnosis is malpractice; the arborist must understand tree biology before embarking on a program of care.
An arborist, tree surgeon, or arboriculturist, is a professional in the practice of arboriculture, which is the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees, shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants in dendrology and horticulture. Arborists generally focus on the health and safety of individual plants and trees, rather than managing forests (the domains of forestry and silviculture) or harvesting wood. An arborist's scope of work is therefore distinct from that of either a forester or a logger.
