The sole purpose of this website is to provide clients and potential clients with information regarding the services available through Sherby Sanborn Consulting Arborist. None of the information on this site is a recommendation for treatments of any kind or the suggestion that anyone should attempt treatments, on their own, without professional advice. As they say on TV “Don’t Try This At Home.” And if you do, you do so at your own risk.


While every effort is made to keep this site current, inadvertent errors may occur. Many cities have tree ordinances that may limit the types of tree care treatments available to you. Applicable laws, rules and regulations often change and it is you’re responsibility to follow all applicable laws.


Arborist Disclosure Statement: Arborists are tree specialists who use their education, knowledge, training and experience to examine trees, recommend measures to enhance the beauty and health of trees, and attempt to reduce the risk of living near trees. Clients may choose to accept or disregard the recommendations of the arborist, or to seek additional advice.


Arborists cannot detect every condition that could possibly lead to structural failure of a tree or anticipate extreme weather events that could contribute to failure. Trees are living organisms that fail in ways we do not fully understand. Conditions are often hidden within trees and below ground. Arborists cannot guarantee that a tree will be healthy or safe under all circumstances, or for a specified period of time. Likewise, remedial treatments, like any medicine, cannot be guaranteed.


Treatment, pruning and removal of trees may involve considerations beyond the scope of the Arborists services such as property boundaries, property ownership, site lines, disputes between neighbors, and other issues. Arborists cannot take such considerations into account unless complete and accurate information is disclosed to the arborist. An arborist should then be expected to reasonably rely upon the completeness and accuracy of the information provided.


Trees can be managed, but they cannot be controlled. To live near trees is to accept some degree of risk. The only way to eliminate all risk associated with trees is to eliminate all trees.
