Trees tend to be tall and can live long; by growing taller, they are more able to compete for sunlight. Trees are part of our environment. It can be found anywhere, mostly in provinces where modernization has not yet been achieved.
Many people heard about Arbor Day, a holiday that encourages individuals and groups of people to plant trees. But do you know what an arborist is? An arborist is a professional in the practice of arboriculture; arboriculture refers to the cultivation, management, and study of individual trees, shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants. They hold a wide range of jobs that relate to the care and maintenance of the trees.
A tree service technician is a specialized arborist. They are someone who looks after trees and identifies disease and pests. By using climbing and rigging procedures, they will cut away the dead and spare branches from trees and shrubs to retain the clearance of road streets, sidewalks, appearance, health, and the significance of the tree. They act as protectors and guardians of trees. They maintain the lives and health of trees and make sure that they will receive the best services that they deserve. Through these functions, it is truly an honor for us to celebrate a day for the arborists. It is not only celebrated for them but also for planting young trees that will replace the older ones. One day of tree-planting is a big help to nature and a big contribution to the growth of our Mother Earth.
Being an arborist is not the only way to show your care for trees. We can share our help in any way that we can. We can start in a simple way until we achieve our goals. As long as we are aware of the importance of trees and the ways to maintain their health, we can help them survive. I believe that if we start encouraging all people to preserve our gifts from nature, trees will still exist for generations to come. We don’t need to stop dreaming of high-technology cities where life is easy and modernized. But what I’m saying is that, along with our developing world, we shouldn’t forget the goodness of nature. We shouldn’t forget the benefits that we have received and are enjoying. The earth will not be complete without nature and trees. Nothing could ever replace the comfort and relaxation that we could get from nature, so we must care for it. Instead of thinking about how to destroy and kill our trees, we should think of other ways to preserve and prolong their existence.
As the saying by Paulo Coelho goes, “In a forest of a hundred thousand trees, no two leaves are alike. And no two journeys along the same path are alike.”
Every tree has its own characteristics and importance. No tree is the same as another because each of them is unique, just like human beings. So we should give them equal care and treatment because they are all considered gifts from the Mighty Creator.
