Risk Assessment

Are your trees safe?

Below are the (3) levels of risk assessment we offer. All assessments are done by a ISA Certified Arborist with the Risk Assessment Qualification. We also provide written reports when requested.

Level 1

  • This is a limited visual assessment of an individual tree or population of trees.
  • It can be performed as a “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.
