An arborist, tree surgeon, or (less commonly) arborist, is a professional in the practice of arboriculture, which is the cultivation, management and study of individual trees, shrubs, vines, and other woody perennial plants in dendrology and horticulture.
Arboristsare considered tree doctors who specialize in tree care. This could include acting as a consultant to determine the type of trees to be used in landscape design, trimming trees for optimal health and growth, or diagnosing and treating trees with diseases. Arborists also provide assistance with structural problems that arise with trees by working directly with customers or consulting landscaping companies.
Arborists can help people learn and understand what nutrients help trees grow, what diseases infest trees, and how a tree's immune system works. Trees are the most permanent features of a garden plan. The range of tree sizes, shapes and colors is wide enough to fit almost any gardening scheme, from shrubby dwarf trees to giant shade trees, from slow to fast growth, from all shades of green to bronzes, reds, yellows and purples. A balance between evergreen trees, such as pines and firs, and deciduous trees, such as oaks, maples and beeches, can provide protection and visual interest throughout the year.

Mottled shade: Areas where there is a mix of sun and shade, usually because there is a deciduous tree nearby.
Horticulture is a science and art that employs technology to grow plants, grasses, shrubs or trees for human use, according to Michigan State University. The science of horticulture covers a broader spectrum than that of an arborist, whose concern is trees or shrubs. Thinning also refers to removing entire branches from a tree or shrub, to give the plant a more open structure.
