Understanding Risk Assessment for Trees

If you're a tree enthusiast or a homeowner with beautiful trees on your
property, you've come to the right place. Our expert team is here to help you understand the importance of professional tree care and risk assessment, ensuring your trees remain healthy, safe, and a source of beauty and shade.

What is a Risk Assessment?

Imagine your trees as valuable assets in your natural landscape. They enhance the beauty of your property, provide shade, and contribute to the environment. But like any valuable asset, they come with potential risks. A risk assessment is a systematic process conducted by our certified arborists to
evaluate these risks and hazards associated with your trees.


The Professional Approach

Our team of skilled professionals takes pride in their expertise. They conduct a thorough evaluation of your trees, ensuring your peace of mind in managing tree-related risks effectively. Here's what our arborists look forduring a risk assessment:

What We Look At

Tree Health: We assess the overall health of your trees, looking for signs of disease, decay, or pest infestations. This detailed examination includes evaluating leaf quality, fungal growth, insect activity, and other indicators of tree vitality.

Structural Stability: Our experts examine the structural integrity of your trees, focusing on the strength and stability of branches, trunks, and root systems. They identify cracks, splits, weak attachments, and signs of structural instability that could lead to limb failure or tree collapse.

Tree Location: We evaluate the proximity of your trees to structures, power lines, roadways, and high-traffic areas. Our goal is to assess the potential impact of falling limbs or tree failure in these locations, helping you
understand the associated risks and recommending appropriate risk mitigation measures.

Tree Species and Characteristics: Different tree species exhibit varying growth patterns, habits, and structural characteristics. We assess how these factors may influence the risk associated with particular species. Some trees may be more prone to limb breakage, while others may have shallow root systemsthat increase the risk of uprooting.

Signs of Decay or Damage: Our arborists meticulously examine your trees for signs of decay, cavities, cracks, or other forms of damage. Identifying these indicators early can prevent weakening of the tree's structure and reduce the likelihood of failure, especially during severe weather events.

Surrounding Environment: We take into account the impact of environmental factors such as soil conditions, drainage patterns, wind exposure, and nearby construction activities. These factors can significantly affect tree stability and health, influencing the overall risk assessment

Risk Assessment vs. Cost Estimate

It's important to note that a risk assessment is not the same as a cost estimate. A risk assessment focuses on identifying tree-related risks and potential hazards on your property. It helps ensure safety by allowinghomeowners to create a plan of action to mitigate these risks.

On the other hand, a cost estimate is a separate process that comes after the risk assessment. Once the risks have been identified, a cost estimate is prepared to create a tailored tree service plan and determine the associated
cost of tree care or removal. This valuable information helps property owners understand the cost implications and make informed decisions about the recommended tree care services.

Professional tree care and risk assessment are essential for preserving the beauty and safety of your trees and property. By entrusting your trees to our skilled arborists, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your green companions are in professional hands.

They carefully removed a very tall, very dead, very dangerous tree. They were there within 24 hours of my request. The quote was the most reasonable offer out of all the competitors and offered cost-saving options up front. They even blew all the leaves off my driveway as a nice perk.

FIVE STAR REVIEW // HIGHLY RECOMMEND // After a tornado-like storm touched down in our backyard, People's Tree Specialists was on the scene almost immediately working with me and several of our neighbors. They quickly removed trees which had fallen onto some houses and then began systematically clearing our yards of massive amounts of debris. In addition to removing 8 fallen pine trees, I had them take down over 15 more pine trees from our property. Art Alcantar, owner, and his entire staff are personal and professional tree specialists. Don't wait for a storm, call People's Tree Specialists today!

Another great experience with People's Tree Specialists. They were quick to review and provide an estimate for my project. Worked out fair pricing and got the job done on the promised schedule. Would highly recommend.

Ed K.

Art and his crew worked through the rain that started shortly after they began the project. They cut down and removed a tall hickory nut tree. The rain became very intense and they finally had to stop on a Friday evening. They came back the next day to finish the project even though they could have come back the next week. I was very pleased with the communication and professionalism of Art and his crew. I would definitely recommend and/or use them again.
