A Certified Arborist has a broad base of knowledge about tree and woody plant care, pesticides, planting safety and related technical matters. In order to become a Certified Arborist in Massachusetts, one must pass a difficult and lengthy exam administered by the Massachusetts Arborists Association. The International Society of Arboriculture offers a similarly difficult exam in the United States and abroad. At Maltby, we employ many Certified Arborists as part of our commitment to industry expertise and standards. Insist on hiring tree and plant health care companies with these certifications when you are seeking expert services.
There are many. The natural beauty that a tree brings to your outdoor home is beyond measure. Seeing seasons turn through the changes in a tree, seeing the leaves emerge during early spring, enjoying the beauty of the blooming season and watching the tree as it prepares for winter reminds us of the natural cycles in life. Planting a tree can be a wonderful experience. As you care for the tree, as years pass and as you watch it grow it becomes a part of your outdoor home and will eventually become an old friend.
Trees, like us, have a life span. Depending on species and environment, trees can live for hundreds of years. There are still many large trees alive today that were living when our country was founded. Knowing the history of your outdoor home will help you determine the age of your trees as some may be part of the original landscape and others added later on. Unfortunately, the best way to tell a tree’s age is to count the growth rings when it is cut down - something we want to avoid!
Hazard assessment is one of the jobs of your arborist. As trees grow and age they become subject to many stress factors that may affect their structural integrity. It is important to have a certified arborist visit your outdoor home and advise you of any possible danger from tree failure.
