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:

Testimonials

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.
Sorel Park
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.

David Spagnolo
We had an amazing experience with the Local Arborist. We came to them after another company bowed out at the last moment, after the service had already been scheduled, explaining that our case was too difficult for them to take on. The Local Arborist saved us! They were prompt and communicative, and very transparent about pricing and potential obstacles. In the end, they were able to remove the tree earlier than the previous company would have done it.Marian kept in touch with me throughout the process on the day of the removal, and advised on the future replanting process. They even trimmed an adjacent tree for us while performing the removal. It was an extremely positive experience, and we look forward to working with the Local Arborist again in the future.

A great company to call! I initially spoke with Mariann to book an appt for a tree that needed careful pruning. He called promptly and passed by to view and give me a quote. A very pleasant & professional guy. 3 guys, Joel, Sasha & Eddiie came to my home, they were absolutely great! Very nice, pleasant and took care of what was needed. I would defenitely call them back should I need this service again. We'll done gentleman, and thank u again.
Chris Davad
These guys were excellent. They were prompt, well coordinated and very professional. Great teamwork. The job went very smoothly. They finished on time, took away all of the debris and logs (it was a huge tree removed from the backyard, and huge stem cut from a tree in the front). They were even careful not to drop logs from too high to avoid getting holes and dings in our lawn. They completely cleaned up our yard and both of my neighbour’s’ yards. My neighbours were very pleased. They even blew off the decks and driveways. Very impressive, and the price was very reasonable. Marian even followed up with a phone call afterwards (and before the team left) to make sure that I was satisfied with the job. I would strongly recommend Marian and his team to anyone.

FAQs

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.
