Tree Hazard Assessments

October 20, 2016

Trees are considered hazardous when a structural defect has the potential to fail and cause personal injury or property damage. Identification and correction of structural defects to reduce this risk is the purpose of a tree hazard assessment. Many structural hazards can go unnoticed resulting in tree failure months, if not years down the road.

Our Certified Arborists are trained to inspect all areas of the tree looking for broken, split, or dead branches. Cankers or decay in the trunk and weakly attached branches can also have an adverse effect on the strength and longevity of trees. As part of a tree hazard assessment, we will also provide curative and preventive maintenance recommendations, such as cabling and support systems, to minimize the risk of failure over the long term.
