Arborist and Landscaper – What’s the Difference?


Even during the high season and the busy periods, continued professional development and reading of the latest industry news are essential to an arborist’s ability to offer top quality and professional advice and care.

Throughout the North East of Scotland and indeed in many other areas, potential consumers often find their letterboxes flooded with leaflets offering tree and garden care. Such services include (but are certainly not limited to!): lawn care services, handymen, driveway and paving services, property management companies and landscape gardeners.

Working in and around trees is a highly trained skill set; not something picked up as you go along, nor learn over a few summers. Check out our article to Avoid Rogue Trader Tree Surgeons. It takes years of training as an apprentice beneath an experienced, qualified and certified arborist to become a professional tree surgeon, and a relevant university degree often helps.

While some basic garden tasks can be achieved with little knowledge and no negative consequences, it is not wise to leave the wellbeing of your trees to an unqualified handyman. Often, you get what you pay for – but trees can be worth hundreds or thousands of Pounds. Large, well-maintained and mature trees can add a significant percentage to the value of your property, so you should not entrust the care of such valuable assets to just anyone.
