Tree Risk Assessment to Protect Your Trees and Your Property

Depending on how the trees are growing on your property, they could be posing a risk to the rest of your property. While some of these risks are obvious, like a large branch growing over your garage, there are risks like disease and invasive insects that may not be as evident, but which can have equally harmful results on other trees, your yard, and even your home. American Arbor can provide you with risk assessment for any tree on your property and then formulate a tree healthcare strategy to address any of those risks to make your property safe. In today’s post, we will discuss some of the risks that your trees may pose to your property.

Damaged or Overgrown Branches

We see it all the time as we drive around without really thinking about it. Tree branches growing over power lines, branches leaning over parked cars, branches growing over houses…there are any number of potential issues just waiting for a strong gust of wind or a lightning strike to put them in motion. American Arbor can inspect these problematic branches to determine the best course of action to eliminate that risk. Whether that means trimming the tree a little bit with some branches removed or removing the tree entirely in extreme cases, we will make sure the risk is eliminated safely without causing any damage to your property.

Professional Arborist Service to Address Insects and Diseases

If you notice loose bark, brown leaves or needles, wilting branches, moldy patches, or any other signs of disease, you need to have your tree treated as soon as possible. The diseases your tree may have can spread around your yard, potentially affecting other trees, shrubs, plants, and your lawn. Factor in an insect infestation like termites or carpenter ants, and you could have a problem with those pests invading your home where they can cause even more damage. We have a team of professional arborists who can properly diagnose the issues your tree is facing and decide what the best course of action is, whether that involves spray treatment for disease and/or insects, or full tree removal if the tree is beyond saving.

If you are concerned about one or more of the trees on your property, contact the professionals at American Arbor and let us know how we can help.
