When asked to check trees for clients there are a number of purposes to be fulfilled.
The most common questions are about tree safety and how big will it grow?
What is the name of the tree?
How old is the the tree?
How big is the root system and will it cause damage to the structures around it?
Is the tree a cause of allergies or is it poisonous to people or pets?
Onsite tree assessments can answer all these questions and more.
It takes about an hour to assess a tree correctly with a Visual Tree Assessment. There is a lot of data to collect and then assess.
Tree assessments and reports are often required but not limited to the following:
- Safety reasons
- New constructions and extensions that may impact an existing tree
- Reports for Councils
- Quality control
- Horticultural practices and principles
- General landscape problems
- Health problems created by pests and diseases
- Total horticultural reporting for large projects i.e. Monthly reports for monitoring the impacts of developments upon trees
