You will also avoid the hazards it can create, as well as the extra insurance and clean up costs. As a property owner, you are responsible for maintaining the safety of your tree and its potential targets. This is why it is important to consider the location of your trees if they were to drop any limbs or fall during a storm. During our tree hazard evaluation, we look at all these factors.

Our highly trained arborists evaluate your tree, determine your level of risk, and finally identify the safest solution to extend your tree’s life. First, we look for major defects or damage that could cause an entire tree, or any part of it, to fall. We then perform a full tree risk evaluation of the surrounding area and recommend the best solution.

Proactive Planning

The most important part of Frontier’s Tree Risk Assessment is prevention. We are proactive and carefully assess your tree. We consider all factors when evaluating current and potential damage. Some of the factors we consider include weakly attached branches, overgrown ivy, deadwood, cracking bark, insects invading, a leaning trunk, or sawdust or mushrooms at the base of the tree.

We especially recommend a Tree Risk Assessment for larger, more mature trees either yearly or following every bad storm. Our experienced experts can spot hard-to-detect defects that can cause a tree to fail when you least expect it. We also determine the potential damage such a hazard could bring to the surrounding area.

Benefits of Tree Risk Assessment Services:

  • Prevent the loss of an old and treasured tree.
  • Avoid tree loss, or damage to property, people, and pets.
  • Avoid unnecessary costs of storm clean up.
  • Catch small tree defects before they become large.

Hazard Pruning

Our Frontier experts can help you identify potential dangers, prescribe proper and ongoing tree care, and advise preventive maintenance for all trees on your property.

Once a Tree Risk Assessment has been completed, we can undertake the appropriate hazard pruning. This could involve removing large or small dead or decaying limbs. Treatment might also involve installing cable and braces in an older tree in order to extend its life. Hazard pruning may be assessed annually in order to keep the tree healthy and safe.

Contact us about any trees you are concerned with, and together we can develop a safe and effective action plan to keep your property, pets, and people safe.
