A Day in the Life of an Arborist

In this video, Beau Nagan shares his experience as one of the arborists. Concern about lawn equipment moving on a lawn is a common issue for customers. It may inform you that they are unable to work on your property.

For example, heavy machinery should not be used on the lawn after a rainstorm.
OSHA reports that 45 incidents involving “tree pruning” occurred in the United States in 2010 or one every eight days. Thirty-five of these occurrences resulted in death. Those are the only fatalities and injuries that have been documented. Consequently, it’s safe to assume that further incidents were unreported. Injured or killed by their tree pruning are not included.
You must have a basic understanding of Physics. With a person suspended 50 feet above the ground, it’s dangerous enough to have them attached to a tree or bucket with a harness. Add a chainsaw to the mix. Add to it the fact that branches will begin to fall from that point on.
Many unpleasant things may happen when the individual doesn’t know where to cut. In the best-case scenario, they’ll be unable to move the chainsaw bar (“blade”) because it’s caught in the branch they’re cutting. When a limb falls and causes property damage, that’s when it becomes terrifying. A fatality or severe injury is the worst possible outcome. So the jobs of arborists are not easy jobs.
