What is an arborist or tree surgeon?

An arborist is a professional who practices arboriculture, the management and maintenance of trees. While trees provide many benefits, they can also be very large, heavy and complex organisms that require professional monitoring and treatment to ensure they are healthy and safe. Practices include pruning, structural support, treatment of disease, insect or abiotic disorders, lightning protection, removal and planting. It can also include planning, consulting, report writing and legal testimony.

We currently* have on staff 9 fully qualified arborists and 7 employees in training available 5 days a week to service the Ballina, Byron, Lismore and Tweed Shires (weekends by prior arrangement).
