Trees can either be an asset or liability. While a tree that’s a liability might be easy to detect, what one might think is an asset might actually not be.
That said, it’s important to get a tree risk assessment done so as to ascertain whether there is any risk – could be that a tree is diseased and can’t be repaired or there is general damage. A tree risk assessment can assist you to determine whether tree cutting, or tree removal may be necessary.
Professional arborists can work with and for you to ensure the affected tree is removed in an efficient and safe manner that won’t cause any damage. This is based on the fact that many tree removals can be complicated with mistakes being costly.
That said, it’s important to ensure that the arborist you choose to work with for your tree removal services is qualified and has a proven track record of providing quality services. How can you ensure this? There are a couple of questions that we’d advise you to ask multiple arborists before settling on one.
These include but are not limited to:
• Are they on the TCIA (Tree Care Industry Association) list of accredited companies?
• Are their staff ISA Certified Arborists?
• Do they have insurance?
• Can they give you a detailed explanation of how they plan to go about the tree removal? Are they planning to climb the tree?
Besides the above questions, you can also rely on referrals from friends and family as well as reviews on search engines and social media channels.
