TREE RISK ASSESSMENT
TREE RISK ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT
Legacy Tree Company can properly conduct a Tree Risk Assessment of your property and propose a plan to manage your trees going forward.
If a tree falls in the woods and no one’s around to hear it.. Well, no one gives a darn. This is not so with the stately canopies that characterize our landscapes and urban forest. Here in Albuquerque, our trees are subject to the almost constant threat of drought stress. Is a tree sound or does it need to be removed?
Legacy Tree Company has extensive experience determining this for you. We have first hand knowledge, and we are plugged into a vast network of seasoned professionals and arboricultural organizations.
We strive to learn from every experience and encounter with trees: be it on the job, through a seminar, or reflecting on the scientific study of a given presentation at our local arboriculture conference.
In assessing whether a tree poses a threat, we lean heavily on the basic principles established by the International Society of Arboriculture’s TRAQ program (Tree Risk Assessment Qualification). We examine the presence and potential of a target, examine the size of the piece that might fail, and consider the probability of failure. A familiarity with the tolerance different species around town have to decay, as well as with their vigor and with their capacity for resilience- give our team good foresight into deciding whether your tree warrants remediation or removal .
Legacy Tree Company routinely inspects root crowns of girdled trees, and trees which have been planted too deep. We do this with the use of air spade or through manually removing earth from the tree. Often, issues that express themselves in the crown have their- forgive the pun- “root cause” below the surface of the ground. Our portable, industrial air compressor enables us to penetrate deep below the ground and remove earth from the root architecture of your tree without damaging vascular tissue. New, unearthed information helps us make the call going forward regarding your tree.
Sometimes it is best to cut one’s losses, sometimes a timely opportunity presents itself to consider replanting and replacing what has been lost. The presence of conks, fungi and decay; the display of mature and sub-optimal structure, bark inclusions and poor taper; canopy die-back and the absence of a trunk flare: these are all clues and cues for our understanding the problems at hand.
But you know that trees are not just a liability. They provide tremendous value and we prize them for it. In managing the risk associated with your trees, and in capitalizing on the value they present- you depend on the experience of professionals who have a vested long-term interest in your landscape.
