Similar to any living thing, trees are subject to both diseases and injuries. To ensure that your trees stay healthy, strong, and visually appealing, you need the services of an arborist. Simply defined, the term arborist refers to an individual who is well-trained in the art and science of tree planting, tree care, and tree maintenance.
Our arborists are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). They are knowledgeable about all tree needs. The arborists are not just well-trained. They are also well-equipped to offer proper tree care.
Tucson Arborist Service
In Tucson, trees play a major role in ensuring that most homes look both functional and aesthetically appealing. Noticing when the trees are looking great and when they aren’t is easy. Obviously, if you fail to take good care of your trees, they will lose their aesthetic appeal.
To any homeowner, taking good care of trees without the help of a certified arborist may be hard. While a homeowner may be able to know that something is not right with his/her tree, knowing the prescriptions that the tree needs for improvement and correction may be impossible. This is where Tucson ISA certified arborists come in.
Every once in a while, trees get stressed. Arborists use the term “stress” to refer to situations in which trees aren’t in their top physical conditions. Whenever trees get stressed, they will exhibit physical symptoms. The arborists will focus on treating the physical symptoms, if necessary. They will also focus on addressing any underlying conditions which caused the stress.
Tree health and human health have a lot of similarities. Similar to a healthy man/woman, a healthy tree won’t attract predators or become diseased easily. However, a weak tree is a magnet for both predators and diseases. If you use our Tucson arborist service to restore your tree’s health, the tree’s defenses should be adequate to resist the majority of the predators and diseases.

ISA certified arborists are experts at tree planting and tree diagnosis. By making use of both their knowledge and experience in the field, our certified arborist should be able to figure out what is stressing your trees. After figuring out the cause of stress, the certified arborist should recommend a solution.
Generally, there are 2 main types of tree stresses. A tree diagnosis done by a certified arborist should help you know whether your tree is dealing with Abiotic Stress or Biotic Stress. Below, we take a deeper look at these 2 types of tree stresses:
This type of stress is generally caused by the environment. It is generally related to:
- Insufficient water.
- Poor nutrients.
- Bad air quality.
- Compacted roots.
- Inclement air.
- The soil having too much salt. This is usually due to excessive fertilizer use.
Biotic stresses are often a result of:
Apart from biotic and abiotic causes of stress, tree stress may also result from root damage caused by construction, renovations, or irrigation. Also, poor quality soil could cause tree stresses.
When working with a certified arborist, tree diagnosis should be much easier. The arborist will help you understand what is happening to your tree before the problem proceeds to a point where it cannot be reversed. Expert arborist service can help save your tree/trees.
