Connect with us for a thorough tree risk assessment.
No matter how much you love that old oak tree in your backyard, it could pose a serious risk to your home if it becomes too weak to withstand a strong storm or a harsh winter. If you’re worried about the condition or location of a tree on your commercial or residential property, your first step should be calling a certified arborist and asking for a tree risk assessment.
A tree risk assessment involves a thorough inspection of the tree itself, along with the area surrounding the tree. An unhealthy tree that has branches hanging over a sidewalk, for instance, poses more of a risk than an unhealthy tree in a secluded part of a property. A tree risk assessment should take the entire picture into consideration in order to accurately calculate the risk it poses. A poor inspection could potentially result in an unhealthy tree falling on someone’s home or car, so it’s vital to choose a certified arborist you can trust.
When you contact an expert from Hudson Tree Services to conduct a tree risk assessment, you can expect us to carefully look for the following warning signs:
- Dead, dying or broken branches
- A thinning canopy or a poor stem-to-canopy ratio
- Exposed roots
- Defects or weaknesses in the trunk and branches
- An uneven branch pattern
After we’ve completed a tree risk assessment, we’ll be able to explain our findings and recommendations so you can make an informed decision. If the tree is deemed to be high risk, you can turn to us for professional tree removal services as well.
