Arborist Reports

Bay Area Tree Specialists provides certified arborist reports for San Jose and Bay Area property owners, property management companies, and more. Depending on where you are located, some city planning authorities may require an arborist report when you apply to have a tree removed.

We are a TRAQ certified arborist (Tree Risk Assessor Qualified). This is a new qualification that cities are now requiring to have over and above being a certified arborist to be qualified to assess tree risk in trees. Richard Smith owner and senior Arborist is qualified as a tree risk assessor. There is a certain form that is used to conduct a tree risk assessment, this form puts together the compiled components of a tree risk and uses a formula from each of the components to assess the trees risk.
