Some obvious and some not-so-obvious indicators of tree disease, decay, or structural weakness may not be visible even to experienced arborists from the ground. Trees in which upper canopy failure would have a high likelihood of damage to people or property may be good candidates for occasional aerial inspection via tree climbing. Such inspection is often combined with crown cleaning, which consists of removal of dead, damaged, or diseased limbs, or those with poor growth form.
From our initial free consultation, we can advise you whether further aerial inspection is advisable. We never advise clients to have us perform work that we do not truly believe is necessary.
