They say that what an experienced old man can see while sitting down a young man can’t see even when he gets to the top of the tallest tree. We will rely on this old adage to tell you the benefits of having your trees assessed by a professional arborist. You can say that you can assess your own trees as you are not visually impaired. You may try to save a penny thinking that you can do it yourself. You may be correct, but what will you do after identifying any potentially dangerous trees?
Truth be told, there is more to tree assessment than just the visual inspection. These require specialized knowledge as we shall see soon. It is a good thing to occasionally walk through your yard to inspect your trees. However, this should not be a substitution for professional tree assessment. San Marcos Tree Trimming and Stump Grinding have qualified arborists whom you can rely on to give you the best service for the safety of your property.
Is tree assessment necessary?
Some people may argue that tree assessment is not necessary and that it is a waste of resources. This is not true. When you have trees on your property, then tree assessment is not optional. It is done for two main reasons: safety and health. During the assessment process, any hazardous trees are identified before they cause destruction to your property or injury to your loved ones. They can be safely removed or structurally reinforced through bracing and cabling.
Tree assessment is also aimed at identifying any diseases and pests on the trees or the possibility of them attacking the trees. Proper treatment can be recommended to keep the trees healthy and appealing. Do you still think that tree assessment is optional?
What is done during tree assessment?
Our professional arborists know exactly the procedure for carrying out tree assessment for this is something that they have done for quite some time now. During the assessments, the following factors are considered:
Tree vigor – Our arborists will inspect the individual trees for foliage cover, the color of the leaf, and the condition of the back.
Tree history – Some trees are prone to pests and disease attacks. Some have a bad history of structural failure whereby branches just snap off from the main trunk. We will get to know all about these and other historical information that is important.
Species Profile – Different tree species have different characteristics. Some species are known for structural failure while others ate known for root anchorage problems. These factors affect their survival chances during storms.
Consequences of failure – This is the last key factor that will determine whether or not a tree remains in your yard. In case of a structural failure, what will be the cause of damages? How can the situation be handled when it happens? Our arborists will help you in answering these questions.
