Whenever you are considering removing, trimming, or preserving the integrity of a tree, an arborist report can be one of your most valuable tools.

An arborist is a person who has been trained in the art and science of planting, maintaining, and caring for trees. As a homeowner, you know that proper tree care is an investment and can add value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a hazard and often pose a liability. Since removing trees can be difficult and dangerous work, it should only be done by a tree removal expert in Palo Alto with the assistance of a professional arborist report.

An arborist report is a formal opinion made by a certified arborist giving an overview, summary and analysis of the health and condition of a tree or group of trees on your property. It will give recommendations on the health and preservation of your landscape and assist you in protecting the integrity of your landscape and trees. Your arborist report will tell you things like:

● Species, size, and health conditions of your trees
● Specific measures you can take to protect your trees
● Details about the location, condition, structural integrity, life expectancy, disease, and insect infestation of each tree
● Proposal of removal for any ill or diseased trees
● Sets out scope of tree work needed and sets out proper protection methods to be taken in the execution
● Will include photographs and/or drawings to support information

Before cutting, pruning, or removing a tree, the knowledge derived from a professional arborist report is beneficial to everyone involved. Hiring a tree removal expert, or arborist, in Palo Alto will ensure that you are getting a professional that has had extensive experience with all aspects of tree care. Your arborist will be able to determine what measures are necessary to remove or care for your trees while considering the health, appearance and safety factors.

Tree removal is a last resort, but there can be situations when it is necessary. With the benefit of an arborist report, your tree removal professional in Palo Alto can assist you in determining when a tree requires removing. Removal can be indicated when a tree is dead or dying, crowding or causing harm to other trees, or considered an unacceptable risk. Your arborist can assist with performing the necessary job in a safe manner, while making sure there is no further risk of damage to the property or adjacent landscaping.
