Tree Health & Hazard Inspection Checklist
The purpose of our Tree Health & Hazard Inspection process is to thoroughly inspect your property to find tree issues that may pose a threat or create a hazard to your property, home, cars, pets or worse your family. We send an ISA Certified Arborist to inspect each and every tree on your property and they will note tree health, hazards and issues that create liability. A proposed plan to eliminate those risks and hazards will then be submitted to you in the form of an estimate for services. If you know nothing about trees don't worry! Our promise is to never try to sell a service that is not completely necessary. We may recommend services that benefit tree health or visual appeal, but those services will be noted as optional, not priority. We will then send our team of tree trimmers, tree removal and tree health care specialists depending on if services are necessary. We are tree lovers and we tend to lean on the side of tree preservation. If you are wondering, "What is a Tree Hazard?" below is a short list of what makes a tree hazardous
