Trees provide various benefits to our homes, neighborhoods and cities and these benefits grow along with the tree. Older, larger and mature trees can significantly add to market value of the property if properly maintained. But, larger trees will more likely drop branches or have potential root conflicts (e.g. damaging underground water pipes, etc.) on the spot where they grow.
When maintaining these kind of trees it is essential to recognize potential risks to your property and those who inhabit it. This is where a professional risk assessment by a qualified arborist can come in handy. The time to act is always better before a problem arises, rather than reacting to disasters. Not only will this make your property safer, but it will also potentially prolong the life of your trees. Preventative tree maintenance can also save you a lot of money when it comes to repairing damage or having trees removed.
Identifying Tree Defects
You should know that its not always easy to see tree defect, and often it takes the eye of an expert to identify common indicators such as the way a tree is forming, the color and density of its leaves, pest and disease detection, or even the soil conditions and root disturbance.
Our tree experts at Duluth Tree Services use a combination of visual inspections, and then using technology to identify any potential or existing damage. Our goal is to provide you with factual information about condition of your trees so that you can make an informed decision about what, if any, action needs to be taken in order to preserve them for as long as possible. We will also let you know of any potential there is to cause damage to property or to injure people who are around them. When there is a potential problem it rarely leads to a recommendation of the tree being removed. Often we can take on less invasive courses of action such as pruning or cabling, changing the soil condition, or maybe something simple liking adding mulch to the base of your trees.
