What is a Tree Hazard Assessment?

A Tree Hazard Assessment is just that — an estimation of the level of risk that a tree poses to persons or property due to failure to thrive. Risk Assessments are completed by certified arborists who inspect the physical condition of the tree and the area surrounding it. If a risk is identified by this assessment, recommendations on how to improve health and safety are made (sometimes this may mean complete tree removal).

When are Tree Risk Assessments required?

As a property owner, it is your responsibility to ensure that the trees on your property are in good condition. If a tree develops any kind of disease or defect (i.e. insect infestation, mechanical injury etc.), it can easily become a hazard. The purpose of a Tree Risk Assessment, as mentioned before, is to analyze the cost-benefit relationship of each tree and take measures to prevent damage from failure.

There are three different Tree Risk Assessments levels:

Excellent and knowledgeable service. Good cleanup after job was finished. Courteous and friendly.
Lorne Brown
Marian was very prompt in his response to our request for a quote and then again in scheduling the service. His team pruned a number of trees on our property and took down another. They also performed a deep fertilization of a large tree that has been struggling. Marian and his team are top notch. They arrived on time and the work was done very professionally. The property was cleaned so impeccably you would have never known they were there other than seeing the results. Would highly recommend!!
Marion Quinlan
Fast work, professionally quality and a reasonable price. What more can you ask for? Would be happy to bring them back anytime to do more work.
Steve Alotsky
All of of you guys were great. From the first contact to when the last leaf left my property. Everyone was more that perfessional. You answered every question I had and gave wonderful advice. The guys who took the tree down, went above and beyond when I asked them to cut sections of the trunk for me. It was completed unbelievably quick and you left my backyard spotless. I would recommend you to everyone.

Local Arborist is a very professional and knowledgeable company. Marian looked at my Honey Locust tree and explained in detail how they were going to prune the tree and why they were proceeding in the manner that they did. The arborists did a thorough job and only stopped working when everything was complete, including cleaning up. This unlike another company, where the employees stopped working when the time on the watch showed them was time to stop. I highly recommend Local Arborist. Mary-Anne, Milton May 2024.

Great professional service with reasonable quotes! Had a pretty big silver maple in my backyard, taking most of the space and blocking sunlight. With Marian's team's help, I got the permit around one month, and had it removed within one day, including full site cleanup, which is beyond my expectation. Highly recommended.
Marion and his team were not only reasonably priced, but super courteous and helpful. They cut an extra branch (diff tree) for me and cleaned up the whole work area without being asked. Highly recommend.

This is a most reliable, amazing company to deal with. They are prompt, efficient, and highly professional. I would give them 10 stars , if it was possible.

Kudos to the Marian’s team! The team has done an amazing job in pruning my pine tree today. My pine tree is over 70 feet and is slanted with branches heavier on one side. At my first contact with Marian, he provided me with a thorough explanation on the condition of my tree and laid out the pruning options. He is very knowledgeable and genuine in the conversation. Above all, he is not pushy at all on the job. After the pruning, the tree is thinned out to lift off some weight on the slanted side. The execution is well planned and thoughtful. Initially I was worried the tree would look bare, indeed the team knows the best to balance between health and aesthetic. The team is very careful with the cuts and since a lot of the work are done on my neighbour’s property, they did a thorough clean up after work too and my neighbour is very satisfied. Thank you so much guys, my tree looks healthier now and it opens up my yard too with more sunlight shining through the pines.

Thank you Marion, your team did a great job at my residence. I would highly recommend your services to anyone.

Do Risk Assessments include an Arborist Report?

While there are instances such as commercial projects or tree removal permit applications that require the completion of an Arborist Report, Tree Risk Assessments do not always necessitate a full Arborist Report.

Do all arborists conduct Tree Hazard Assessments?

There are two types of arborists – working and consulting. Typically speaking, consulting arborists are the ones who prepare tree reports and risk assessments. Local Arborist is proud to offer both working and consulting arborist services, for all you tree care needs.

How do you assess the risk of a tree?

There are many distinct factors that are taken into consideration when determining the risk factor of a tree. The history, appearance (canopy density, leaf coloring, bark condition etc.), species, and location of a tree are all important to note. These aspects all play a part in determining the likelihood of failure and what the consequences of a failure would be.
