Arborist Wanted

I have an oak tree about 3 or 4 feet DBH that has a bad spot at the base. I need an arborist who can tell me what is happening to the tree and what course of action I should take. I have looked online for arborists and haven't had any luck finding one. I have looked up the IBA lists of members and called well over half a dozen with no response. The one person I actually talked to said the arborist I wanted no longer worked there. So many of the on line sites seem to equate arborist with tree cutter. If I can save the oak that would be my preference. So I would like any recommendation you all may have for some arborist who actually tries to deal with the problem without automatically wanting to cut down the tree. I live close to Jordan Lake on the east side if the arborist you know of has distance limits for travel.

Thanks in advance.

My daughter has a degree in horticulture and works for a landscaping co near Raleigh.

I'll ask her if they know of someone who takes care of older trees.

Can you give a better description of the bad spot (rotted, oozing sap, ants)? I've had a some red oaks that had similar problems but I forget the cause.

Try Bartlett Tree Service. They'll send a "certified" arborist to take a look (free) but their treatment services are not cheap

Please let me know what you find out. I’m Greensboro with a HUGE maple in our backyard with a few scars that I’d like to get looked at.

This from my daughter.

Honestly, Bartlett Tree Experts is very good at that type of thing. We usually use them. They're a national company, but their arborists are all certified and well educated.

These folks have done work for me before. Very professional. The owner, his wife, and several others are certified arborists.
