We do not recommend specific companies or individuals. The U of A
page "AZ1003 How to Hire a Tree Expert " at
tells you how to contact the local chapter of the National Arborists Assn.

> We have a 15 year old pink grapefruit tree in our back yard. It has been prolific and healthy. This past summer, roof rats got into the tree and ate the bark off the center limb. We got nursery advice, cut it off, painted it, trapped rats, etc. The tree seems to be declining still, and about 1/3 of it is starting to look really bad. I know the old leaves are starting to shed, but it's worse than usual. Who can we contact about pruning our tree? A nurseryman told us to be very careful, that a tree can be butchered....what do we do for our beautiful tree?
