Tree risk assessment is an important process for managing the trees in your landscape. An in-person tree assessment allows professional arborists to effectively evaluate the condition of your trees and conduct a diagnosis, as well as recommend a solution to help maintain the good health of the affected trees.
When to Get a Tree Assessment Done
Expert arborists recommend checking your tree at least twice a year – once in the winter in winter months and once in the summer month.
During winter, arborists can identify issues like weak branch structure, potential decay and cavities from animals. During summer, the professional can look at the tree’s leaves, root issues and twig development.
Homeowners can, however, conduct assessment on their tree any time of the year, especially after spotting unusual signs such as discoloration, decay or cracks.
Why You Should Get a Tree Assessment
The average homeowner cannot identify potential problems with their trees like trained and professional arborists.
Leveraging their training, technology and years of experience, an arborist can spot issues with disease, insects, and general damage that will worsen the condition of your tree, possibly leading to a collapse.
What to Consider During a Tree Assessment
Safety: A weak branch on a dead, diseased or dying tree can fall suddenly without warning, wreaking havoc on your property. Annual tree assessments will help spot issues that can lead to a tree or tree branch collapsing and reducing the risk.
Tree Heath: The effects of diseases and hazardous insects can be easily missed by homeowners who are not trained to look for them. A trained arborist can quickly identify the symptoms of disease or pest infestation and immediately administer the appropriate treatment.
Growing conditions: Trees are more likely to flourish when provided with the proper growing conditions. A professional arborist evaluates the growing conditions of your trees to detect defects with the tree or its root system.
