Trees are beneficial for many reasons including cleaning our air, protecting homes from the sun and wind, and reducing the impact of rain by reducing the amount of run-off into creeks and streams.  Another benefit of trees that is most often overlooked is that they save money.  In a recent study of the urban forest of Austin, Texas, it was found that the trees of Austin contributed to more than $133,000,000 of annual savings.  The study was based on the forest’s impact on the improvement in air quality, reduction in stormwater run-off, and energy savings resulting from the shade provided by trees.

Regardless of your area, Tarrant Consulting Arborists can be found by searching Arborist Tarrant County, Arborist Fort Worth, Arborist Southlake, and Arborist Colleyville.

Homeowners can reap the economic benefits of trees with lower air conditioning costs from the shade of trees, and lower heating costs when trees block high winds.  Trees also increase in value from the time they are planted until they mature, and improve property value. 

  • Social Benefits
    • Observing the beauty of trees makes life more pleasant. 
    • Studies have shown that hospital patients recover from surgery more quickly when in a room with a view of trees. 
    • Communities often come together to save trees from removal for urban development
  • Communal Benefits
    • The size of trees allow their benefits to extend to other properties than the one in which they are planted.
    • City trees allow for privacy, emphasize structures, or provide an urban oasis by blocking views of buildings.
  • Environmental Benefits
    • Trees moderate the climate by reducing the effects of sun, wind and rain.
    • Air quality is improved when leaves absorb carbon dioxide as well as dust and other particulates.
    • Attraction of birds and other wildlife

Trees are most beneficial when they are maintained. Tarrant Consulting Arborists have the knowledge and equipment needed to prune, spray, fertilize, and maintain all trees and shrubs on your property.  Please check out the services tab on the website to learn more about what TCA offers.

An arborist, or (less commonly) arboriculturist, is a professional in the practice of arboriculture, which is the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees, shrubs, and vines, other . Arborists generally focus on the health and safety of individual plants and trees, rather than managing forests (the domains of forestry and silviculture) or harvesting wood. An arborist's scope of work is therefore distinct from that of either aforester or a logger, though the professions share much in common.

To work near power wires either additional training is required for arborists or they need to be Qualified Line Clearance Arborist or Utility Arborists (there may be different terminology for various countries). There is a variety of minimum distances that must be kept from power wires depending on voltage, however the common distance for low voltage lines in urban settings is 10 feet (about 3 metres).

Arborists who climb (as not all do) can use a variety of techniques to ascend into the tree. The least invasive, and most popular technique used is to ascend on rope. There are two common methods of climbing, Single Rope Technique(SRT) and Double Rope Technique (DRT or DdRT). When personal safety is an issue, or the tree is being removed, arborists may use 'spikes', (also known as 'gaffs' or 'spurs') attached to their chainsaw boots with straps to ascend and work. Spikes wound the tree, leaving small holes where each step has been.

Arborists may also plan, consult, write reports and give legal testimony. While some aspects of this work are done on the ground or in an office, much of it is done by arborists who perform tree services and who climb the trees with ropes, harnesses and other equipment. Lifts and cranes may be used too. The work of all arborists is not the same. Some may just provide a consulting service; others may perform climbing, pruning and planting: whilst others may provide a combination of all of these services.
