If you are going to preserve a tree the number one rule is safety and you should get a certified arborist with the Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ) to inspect the tree. Not all defects can be seen from the ground and it becomes necessary to identify defects in the canopy of the tree. Sometimes, defects and other conditions are obscured by climbing plants, mistletoe, moss, or epiphytes, which require an aerial inspection to be revealed. The aerial inspection may determine that there are defects that prevent the tree from being a good candidate for preservation.
