As an ISA certified arborist I specialize in tree identification and overall health of any trees I’m working on. I have to identify where to cut when pruning to ensure the tree can recover and heal correctly. I inform homeowners or business owners the hazards of over pruning, not pruning, topping (reducing the height) of a tree, and which diseases specific types of trees are prone to. And I also do removals when a tree has become to big, has become to sickly to save, has died, or simply because of where the tree was planted. Tree work is, in my opinion, an extremely rewarding experience but can be challenging. It takes great passion for what you do to keep with it.
