What is killing my trees?
Every tree species has its own list of pests and diseases that it is susceptible to. Lack of water or too much water can be one of the most common issues associated with poor tree health and can lead to increased pest and disease activity. Understanding these relationships between trees and disease and being able to identify the cause of the decline of your trees health is the first step to taking corrective action.
Are my trees safe?
It all depends on what the target is or what they will hit if they fail. Tree risk assessment is the systematic process to identify, analyze, and evaluate tree risk. Risk is the combination of the likelihood of an event and the severity of the potential consequences. In areas where people or valuable property may be within striking distance of tree failure the consequences could be significant to severe. It is impossible to maintain trees free of all risk, but understanding the structural condition of a tree can help identify an unstable tree that looks relatively healthy.
What is a Qualified Tree Risk Assessor?
The Tree Risk Assessment Qualification is part of the International Society of Arboriculture’s (ISA) Credentialing Program, a voluntary program designed to test an individual’s degree of knowledge in the field of arboriculture. The Tree Risk Assessment Qualification requires individuals to take a designated course, and must successfully pass exam including written and practical field component to earn the qualification. The credentialing program is designed to increase the standard of practice in the tree care industry, promote the professional development of individual practicing arborists, and assist the public in identifying qualified tree care professionals. When contracting for tree risk assessment, the ISA recommends hiring arborists who are ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualified.
