Prepurchase Home and Property Tree Inspection
When you buy a new home, you want everything to be perfect. It needs to be safe, secure, and in accordance with all regulations. In the process of examining a home, it’s easy to focus on interior aspects like electrical and plumbing. But, don’t forget the exterior! Getting a tree inspection can give you peace of mind — and save you hundreds of dollars down the line.
Our ISA Certified Arborist is also Tree Risk Assessment Qualified. This qualification requires additional training and testing in the area of tree risk identification and management. Tree risk assessment uses a systematic process to identify, analyze, and evaluate tree risks or hazards. Whether your concern is a single branch or the entire tree, we can help with your tree issue.
How Tree Inspection Helps
At a glance, a tree may look sturdy, but you don’t want it to come crashing down in the first storm. Fallen branches can damage your roof and gutters, come into contact with power lines, and make your property unsafe. Even a tree that has held up for decades can have hidden problems.
During a tree inspection, our professional ISA Certified Arborist® will check for the following:
● Structural defects
● Disease issues
● Decayed areas
● Invasive root concerns
● Major root loss
● Pest problems
● Potential damage to persons or property due to tree or branch failure
● Tree hazard evaluation
● Damage to structures caused by climbing plants
If Tree Inspection Uncovers a Problem
We will recommend next steps to mitigate the risk such as pruning, cabling or bracing, and target relocation. These techniques can leave the tree intact while removing select branches, deadwood, or excess growth. That way you can enjoy the beauty, fresh air, and shade of the tree without worrying it is a liability. In extreme cases, we may recommend tree removal.
