This page provides information for you to find what you're looking for in an arborist. You'll find the main differences between a Consulting Arborist, and a Practicing Arborist and how to find the one you're after. Due to perceived/possible conflicts of interest, arborists are usually only one or the other. Here at Cutting Edge Tree Management, we are primarily Practicing Arborists. We'll happily provide expert advice and recommendations, but usually won't write tree reports.
