Tree Hazard Management

Hazard tree evaluation is the systematic process of assessing the potential of a tree or one of its parts to fail and, in doing so injure people or damage property. The degree of hazard varies with tree size, type and location of defect, tree species and the nature of the target (Arboriculture Fourth Edition). We examine the entire tree structure and health above ground, as well as below ground to provide a concise hazard assessment to the property owner. Tree hazard management programs and procedures are then designed to reduce accidents caused by tree failures.
