Arborist

Power

Arborists get all the cool toys. They drive big box trucks, feed brush to powerful chippers, operate monstrous chainsaws, and climb huge trees. Their work is dangerous, exciting, and entertaining to those of us who watch and envy their expertise. Yet, there really is not much power. The trees have the real power. Big trees that do not get the attention and respect that they deserve, and even some that do, can do a lot of damage when they fall down or even drop a limb.
