AREAS OF SERVICE
Big trees can be scary, but size and defects aren't inherently indicators of high risk. Fear condems thousands of trees a year, but risk should be considered systematically. Often risks are lower than expected or can be mitigated with simple interventions, allowing beloved trees to be preserved for the next generation.
I maintain the ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualification to deliver assessments that meet industry standards.
Sometimes things just don't look right! A health assessment can help you determine if preservation is viable and what steps might be taken to improve a plant's condition.
While damage to plants can happen in a matter of seconds, its impact can be devastating in the long-term. Even minor looking impacts can lead to mortality and increased liability. Such damage and the resulting costs are often easily avoided with proper planning.
CONSTRUCTION / INSTALLATION OVERSIGHT
Construction/installation practices can diverge wildly from those specified in contracts, often leading to significant impact on specimens earmarked for preservation.
The best laid plans are nothing without proper oversight and execution.
