What is an arborist?

What is arboriculture? Who can be called an arborist?

Arboriculture is the care of trees and shrubs, particularly in urban settings.

An arborist (or tree surgeon) is a professional in the practice of arboriculture, the management and maintenance of trees. Work may also include care of shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants. An arborist is distinct from a forester, or from a logger. Those professions may have much in common, but the scope of work is different. Arborists frequently focus on health and safety of individual trees, or wooded landscapes, rather than managing forests or harvesting wood.

In addition, an arborist is a professional who cares for trees and other woody plants by pruning, fertilizing, monitoring for insects and diseases, consulting on tree related issues, and occasionally planting, transplanting and removing trees.
