Tree Risk Assessment

Tree Risk Assessment 1We offer three basic levels of risk assessment:

Level 1 – This is a limited visual assessment of an individual tree or population of trees. It can be performed as a visual "drive-by" assessment in the case of many trees or even as a limited assessment as might be performed during an estimating request.

Level 2 – The Level 2 assessment is a 360-degree visual evaluation of a tree where the crown, trunk, trunk flare, above-ground roots, and site conditions are evaluated in regard to targets. Under the TRAQ methodology, the Level 2 assessment is often carried out using the ISA Basic Tree Risk Assessment form.

Level 3 – This category would include any risk assessment that would exceed the Level 2 category including aerial assessments, decay detection through drilling or tomography, and root crown examinations.
