Trees are hazardous when they fall or lose limbs, resulting in
personal injury or property damage. Tree Associates Inc. assists
property owners, managers and others in developing Tree Risk
Management Programs, which are useful in reducing the risk
involved with trees in urbanized areas. A comprehensive Tree
Risk Management Program includes Tree Risk Assessment, risk
abatement, record keeping and training.
Tree Risk Assessment involves a systematic identification of structural defects within the canopy, trunk and/or roots of trees, assigning the likelihood of failure and potential consequences of failure of the tree or its parts. In many cases aerial inspection, root crown examination, or investigation to determine the extent of decay may be necessary to complete the assessment. Tree Associates Inc. utilizes Sonic Tomography (Picus 3) and resistance drilling to map trunk decay.
Where many trees are being managed under limited budgets, the tree risk ratings we provide may be used to prioritize risk abatement. Abatement options include pruning, cabling, bracing, tree removal, and target removal or modification.
