Why use a qualified arborist

Structural defects in trees are many and varied. Without the use of a qualified arborist structural defects will not be correctly identified. In this case a Eucalyptus camaldulensis (River Red Gum) has a co-dominant trunk union that is now a significant structural defect, which could result in tree removal. Early assessment and formative pruning by a qualified arborist would have seen this defect removed with a pruning saw.
