First up, it's very helpful to have biological and botanical dictionaries on hand. Botanical dictionaries can elucidate details about different parts of different trees and plant. Biological dictionaries can help explain certain parts of botanical dictionaries that may not be elucidated otherwise. Botanical dictionaries in particular are very useful for identifying different kinds of tree parasites which may damage the health of a tree.

Training programs are critical to help train budding arborists in appropriate technique. There are programs available for both proper form in cutting trees, as well as for long-term strategies like root management and the maintenance of soil health.

Finally, and most easy to overlook, a well-written almanac can be of great help to a tree expert in training. Almanacs carry useful information about the weather, when the first frost will be and so on. These are very important pieces of information for modern arborists. These can be found in print or for online subscriptions.
