Many industries have different specialists. For example, for tree care, arborists are the ones to call for preventative and maintenance of trees.
Arboriculture is defined as the practice and study of the care of trees and other woody plants in the landscape. An arborist conducts testing and research, manages urban forests, provides expert witness and professional consultancy, and perform a wide range of practical tree care and tree removal operations.
The scale of work is extensive. Most arborists work directly with trees and shrubs. Others will spend their time quoting jobs, meeting with customers, writing tree reports, training apprentices (if qualified), and more.
