What is a Tree Risk Assessment?
A tree risk assessment is a visual diagnosis of a tree’s health. This should be done by a certified arborist. Assessments are completed to determine the likelihood of future failure of the tree, as well as consequences of such potential failure.
Does the tree pose an immediate thread to persons or property?
If the answer is yes, it becomes vital to identify what the threat may be and/or if the tree can be repaired, if there are mitigating options, or if the tree should be removed. When analyzing a tree, we’ll determine its viability by pulling the following data:
• What does the profile of the tree’s species tell us? For example: does the species typically grow shallow roots, or is it prone to a specific disease?
• What is the history of the tree? Does the tree have a history of pest invasion? Has the tree been predominately healthy?
• Does the tree seem healthy? Visually, All Pro Tree & Crane will determine elements such as the canopy’s density, proper leaf coloring, and bark’s condition.
• Crown Health: Is there an apparent crown die-back? Or, in layman’s terms, can you see the tree dying from the top, down? If so, there are usually treatment options.
• Consequence of Tree Failure: While it’s important to determine the tree’s health, it’s most important to outline any potential targets within the tree’s reach in the event of failure. In a worst case scenario, the tree may threaten a structure, home, or bodily injury.
