Arborist Reports

Arborist reports are a technical evaluation of a tree’s condition. Many times arborist reports are a requirement before commencement of real estate development or construction. Arborist reports can be requested by homeowners who need an evaluation of a tree on their property for health or hazard. Arborist reports are often required before obtaining a permit for tree removal.

The Certified Arborists at A1 Tree Service Eastside are trained to identify tree species, size and condition in these reports. The condition of a tree is evaluated on a structural and health basis. The tree is evaluated in arborist reports for its potential hazards. Hazard inspection evaluates the overall structure of the tree, including the limbs, trunk and roots to determine any defects or future problems. The report will record a hazard rating based on the size, condition and location of the tree.

Recommendations are typically made to increase tree health and eliminate potential hazards. Sometimes, tree removal is recommended because of the hazard associated with the degree of defect, the size of the affected portion of the tree and the location of the tree.
