Tree assessments are designed to assess the trees on your property to determine the risks each poses to people or structures. This proactive step can be used to identify preventative maintenance needs and reduce insurance liability should an accident occur.

Tree assessments range from levels 1-3. A third-level assessment provides a more in-depth look at specific tree parts and their potential for failure by assessing a tree’s roots, stem, or crown and may include climbing and examining the roots with an air excavator.

Techniques used can include:

  • Site evaluation
  • Soil testing
  • Aerial evaluation
  • Decay testing
  • Starch tests
  • Root and collar excavation
  • Load testing
  • Trunk lean evaluation
  • Storm and wind load analysis
