What is a tree inspection?
Its very important to carry out a tree inspection of your property every six months. You need to contact a professional arborist who can assess your property.
Your local Arborist will check and explain what trees, shrubs and plants need regular vegetation management.
The first assessment you should request is for the safety of all the occupants and to the property buildings. Large and overgrown trees and shrubs can be hazardous to people and buildings.
Our professional Tree Care Arborists will check the following tree conditions:
- Sick trees with damaged or dead branches
- Dead trees for a high risk of falling
- Trees with severe root decay and tree truck rot
- Trees attacked by insects or animals
- Trees suffering from fungal infection
