The Licensed Arborist credential indicates licensed arborists who are professionals who have attained a minimum of three years of full-time experience practicing arboriculture and who possess a recognized certificate covering aspects of arboristry. It is therefore imperative to ensure that the arborist you choose has the requisite certification in order to undertake all of the arborist tasks necessary for proper tree maintenance.
The Licensed Arborist designation does not mean that arbors are all easy to set up, maintain or repair. There is considerable skill required, as arbors are constructed for specific purposes, and the trained arborist will need to have sufficient knowledge in arboric technology and a good working knowledge of his or her trade.
A person wishing to become an arborist should apply to a state board of arborist certification which in turn will send out an application to arbors which have been deemed as being in the best interest of the public. Applicants must then complete a written exam covering various aspects of arbors in their particular state. The exam is usually given by a board of arborist supervisors and examiners.
Upon successfully passing the licensing examination, an applicant will be issued a license to practice arbors in his or her own state. As with all other licenses, this license must be renewed on an annual basis. There are other states in which licensed arborist can work, but the requirements and qualifications in some of these states are slightly different than in others.
Arborists are also known as “carpenters” in North America. However, arbors are not carpentry in the strictest sense of the word. They do not cut, paint or build structures. Instead, the arborist makes the structure appears as it would if it were natural, or as if it were in a natural environment.
Arborists may also install or repair any type of arbors, whether they are commercial residential or natural. The most common types of arbors in existence today are concrete arbors (or arbors) and lattice or gable arbors.
Arborists may also install or repair lattice or gable arbors, but this task is usually left to experts who are skilled in building natural structures. Most licensed arborists will focus primarily on the lattice and gable arbors and only rarely will they install or repair concrete arbors (concrete arbors).
In order to become licensed, an arborist must work in specific arbors and must know the specific laws and regulations in his or her particular state. If you are planning on becoming an arborist, you should seek the services of a licensed arborist, as these individuals will have the information you need to understand what your state requires.
If you are not a licensed arborist, you should research the Internet and find a company that hires arborists to inspect your home and yard. Arbors are essential to the health and beauty of your property, so they should be inspected on a regular basis. Hiring an arborist will help save you money and help ensure the overall success of your arbor project. In addition, your arbor will look beautiful when the time comes to plant your flowers, trees and shrubs around the arbor.
