Hazard & Risk Assessment

Potential hazards within trees may result from structural defects, environmental conditions, and inherent flaws specific to the species, or a combination of such factors. The symptoms that a hazardous tree displays may be simple and obvious; however, more often they can be complex and difficult to identify.

A pro-active approach that identifies potentially hazardous trees and formulates a program of mitigation is mandatory to retain a safe environment.

Early detection and correction of tree defects not only reduces hazards, but decreases maintenance costs. This results in healthier, longer-living trees, reduced landscaping costs, and, most importantly, fewer tree- related accidents resulting in less exposure to legal liabilities.

Taylor’s trees utilize many years of knowledge about tree species, biology, and structure, and are fully conversant with the rapidly advancing and changing field of risk assessment and tree hazard evaluation.
