What is the difference between a tree-lopper and an Arborist?

An Arborist is someone who has gained the technical competence to correctly and efficiently care for trees and other woody plants. Above all, the Arborist is a highly qualified professional who does more than just trim or lop tree branches. A tree lopper is generally unqualified and lacks the technical skills to fully care for your trees.
