Arborists versus Tree Surgeons
There is often confusion when it comes to the terms arborist and tree surgeon. An arborist is someone who works in the Trees industry and has a qualification in Arboriculture. Arborists generally work for local government, utility companies or tree management contractors. A tree surgeon is someone who carries out all aspects of tree surgery, from felling and stump removal to hedge trimming and tree pruning. Tree surgeons generally work for themselves or for smaller landscaping companies.
