An arborist is defined as an individual who is trained in the science and art of planting and caring for trees. A certified arborist is one who has achieved a level of knowledge through education, extensive study and passing comprehensive examinations developed by the nation's leading experts in tree care. A certified arborist must also continue their education to retain their certification. A certified arborist also commits to a Code of Ethics.

When you think of what equipment is in an arborists' toolbox, the first thing that comes to mind for many people is the chainsaw. Actually, an arborists' toolbox is packed with plenty of mechanical and technical objects. When plants stay in containers for too long, the growing roots begin to circle the pot - essentially 'girdling' the plant and restricting the water and nutrient flow to the plant. Stem girdling can happen when trees are planted too deeply or in the wrong position, but it can also occur when the tree is planted in compacted soil, or in places where soil obstructions like foundations, curbs, rocks and more can deflect the roots and contribute to tree girdling.
