The preservation of trees can be costly, frustrating and in many situations, disappointing.
Many people believe that tree preservation simply equates to leaving trees standing during the development process. It is however, an extremely complicated and scientific exercise.
Using a consulting arborist to implement tree preservation can alleviate frustration and disappointment, as well as save money.
The certified, consulting arborist and associated professionals at Expert Tree Consultants apply science and research-backed data when preserving trees; no snake oils, no remedies, no urban legends.
Only tree biology, science and research are considered and planned specifically.
Not all trees can be preserved. Not all trees should be preserved.
The preservation process begins with a complete tree assessment. Many trees are poor candidates for preservation due to poor health, diseases, age and structural criteria. Situation criteria such as safety, topography changes, root loss, canopy loss, light and shade issues, landscape considerations, fill dirt, grade changes and encroachments are also analyzed in the process.
Chemical products are considered as a viable, possible inclusion in preservation methodology. These products must comply with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other legal criteria for labeled use. These products can be either curative or prophylactic in nature. The safety of people and the environment are the primary issue.
A preservation plan is created with the input of the development team. From the owner and professional engineer to the jurisdiction agency enforcing the ordinances, a set of specifications is created. Licensed and certified professionals are targeted for implementation of the specificity, costs are determined and schedules are set.
The implementation of the preservation specifications is closely monitored during the process. The job is inspected after completion for compliance to the specifications. Reports are issued to the owner or owner’s representative, and the regulatory agency’s requirements are met.
