Tree ID and Other Arborist Resources

For arborists, trees and their management are at the heart of their profession. To successfully care for trees, it is crucial that they are able to properly identify them. When identifying a tree, things such as the region, the bark of the tree, the type and shape of its leaves or needles, and its fruit are all taken into consideration. Field guides, either as hard copies or apps, are also useful tools for arborists. In addition, there are also numerous online sources that not only aid in identification but also serve as a helpful resource for planting trees. This is important to ensure that the proper trees are planted for the area.
