Tree Risk Assessment

Tree Risk Assessment & Evaluation

Qualified, professional assessments and evaluations of tree risk and recommendations on tree management.

As Consulting Arborists we provide practical and effective assessment of tree risk and health to our clients. Using our training and education, we can spot potential structural weaknesses before they become major projects and treat or contain pests and pathogens before they seriously impact tree health.

Practical & Effective Tree Risk Assessment

A well-maintained and mature tree can result in an important portion of a home’s market value due to its shade, aesthetics, ecosystem services, habitat and general landscape appeal. Whether you’ve just moved into your area, or simply have questions regarding tree health and safety, it’s important to have trees inspected by a qualified and Certified Arborist. Preventative tree care and tree monitoring every 1-5 years is an investment in your property and piece of mind.

We offer the following advanced tree diagnostic and evaluation services:

Using advanced diagnostic tools, we can examine trees closer and more thoroughly. We have an array of specialized tools that allow us to look inside trees and into their upper most leaves.

UAV - Aerial imagery

Using a UAV, or “drone”, allows us unparalleled imagery of upper canopy tree disorders. Additionally, by flying in a pattern above a landscape, NDVI technology can quickly analyze discrepancies in the health of the landscapes vegetation. Technology in this field is fast evolving and we keep up. UAVs are changing the face of ecology and arboriculture.

Aerial Inspections & Tree Climbing

Safely climbing trees to access their canopy to take samples and conduct tests is a major benefit in tree risk evaluation. Our Certified Arborsits are all trained in tree climbing and aerial inspections, opening up more avenues for safe tree inspection and overall management.

Fungal Analysis

Advanced technology allows us the ability to incubate and cultivate (grow) fungi infecting a tree that we are unable to identify. Once this fungi are grown, we can have the organism multi sequenced to derive it’s species. This is not always successful but can be a remarkable tool.

Wood Decay Testing

A wood decay testing drill measures wood resistance as it drills and complies that data into software. Wood decay testing enable us to conclude on wood decay inside of trees. In forestry and arboriculture, it is understood trees actually develop decay within themselves to better withstand the influence of wind and other external forces. The ability to measure the actual extent of decay allows us to preserve more trees. ​
