Though trees are a significant asset to your property, they also can present a hazard to structures or people if they are not properly monitored.
As a homeowner, taking the time to understand the assets on your property is the most responsible thing to do. Having a proper tree risk assessment from a professional arborist and tree service can help save you big money.
Prevent Tree Failures
The time and labor cost of identifying and solving an issue is significantly less than the result of a tree failure. Knowing and understanding the three failure areas (limbs, trunk, or roots) is essential in understanding what steps to take. Taking the time to have a certified risk assessor come and identify potential issues can save you money, insurance claims, and property damage.
We take the time to look at every aspect of your tree to determine if it is currently structurally and systemically sound. We also assess the risks surrounding the tree that might cause it to fail in the future and make you aware of our findings.
Signs of a Risky Tree
When evaluating your tree for risks, we check:
- Trunk / Stem
- Bark health and coverage
- Branches and branch reach
- Signs of rot or fungus
- Overgrown surrounding plants like ivy or blackberries
- Dangerous lean
- Dead limbs
- Insect intrusion
- Signs of disease
- Dead tree/snag tree
We are equipped to handle any and all issues that may arise due to a tree that poses a risk to life or property. New Day can make recommendations on how to save trees that pose a small risk and trees that are outright dangerous.
Depending on what issues are present within your tree, we may suggest one of the following solutions:
- Insecticide treatment
- Dead limb removal
- Canopy pruning
- Limb removal
- Tree removal
- Fertilizer treatment
- Continued surveillance
- Tree thinning
- Tree support systems
- Root excavation
- Wood chip application
Benefits of Tree Risk Assessment
Trees are a very valuable commodity on your property, in your neighborhood, and throughout the community. Keeping them healthy serves to ensure the aesthetic beauty of the area and the physical safety of you and those in your family and community.
Having your trees assessed for risk on a regular basis ensures:
- You can prevent the loss of a loved tree
- Avoid damage to property, pets, and others
- It prevents small issues from growing into huge problems
- Avoids costly damages to the property due to limb or trunk failure
Trees provide significant benefits to our homes and cities, but when trees fall and injure people or damage property, they are liabilities. Taking care of tree hazards makes your property safer and prolongs the life of the tree.
