What’s Included In A Tree Inventory?

A tree inventory is performed on large acres of land where there are many different types of trees that need to be cared for. A tree care expert will walk through the property and do a 306-degree inspection of each tree noting its age, condition, location, and whether it has any defects.

The main purpose of the tree inventory is to determine what trees need to be removed and which trees should be retained. If any trees need to be removed, a removal plan will be recommended that outlines which trees should be removed first due to disease or possible property damage. This is handy not only to prevent accidents but also in planning a landscaping budget.

The trees that are retained will also come with a care guide. Again, this is helpful in budget planning and will help showcase what needs to be done, and what types of trees could be planted in the area to create a healthy diversity.

Large estates can be difficult to manage when you are not aware of every single tree. A tree inventory can solve this problem. Call Ned Patchett today for an appointment with one of our specialists.

Benefits Of Tree Removal

Chances are, at some point in a homeowner’s life they are going to need to deal with having a tree removed. Whether it is from storm damage, old age, or disease, a tree that is left can cause serious issues and damage.

Deciding to remove a tree can be a difficult decision, but here are some of the top benefits for making the tough choice:

  • Increased Safety: Trees that are dead or damaged will fall at some point. If they fall on or near the home a lot of costly repairs will be needed. Plus, personal injury included death can be a side effect.
  • Tree Preservation: Trees that have a disease or insect infestation such as wood borers are likely to spread those problems to other healthy trees. When the problems go beyond the point of repairing, removing the tree is best.
  • Electricity Disruption: Another common reason for removing a tree is the possible damage to powerlines. Removing the tree will eliminate the possibility of there being a disruption.
  • Root Damage: Problems do not always occur from the part of the tree you can see. Sometimes, roots can cause serious damage to water pipes and sewer lines.
