Many cities and counties require arborist reports prior to approval of land improvements. We can customize a report including Tree Protection Plan and Preservation Guidelines that fits your site and needs.
We now have at our disposal a fully equipped diagnostic laboratory with molecular testing capabilities and staffed with leading researchers at Bartlett Tree Experts Research Lab in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories is capable of evaluating plant samples, culturing and identifying disease-causing organisms, identifying insects, and performing complete soil analysis services. Staffed with scientists in fields such as plant pathology, entomology, and horticulture, the laboratories advise our arborists on the latest advances in arboriculture for the benefit of our clients. While many of these scientists are based out of the location in Charlotte, we also have dedicated researchers in the Midwest, Northeast, and Pacific Coast in the U.S., as well as a research facility in Reading, United Kingdom. The facility in Charlotte alone receives more than 7,000 plant samples for analysis for insect pests, diseases, and cultural and environmental problems. Over 12,000 soil samples are processed from our clients' properties annually.
Hazardous trees can present a serious risk to people and property in the surrounding area, especially in the urban areas of our surrounding communities. While the identification of hazardous trees should be done by experienced arborists, there are several indicators you may want to examine on trees around your property.
Tree appraisal is assigning a monetary value to a tree. There are many reasons someone may need a tree appraised. We utilize the most current edition of the “Guide for Plant Appraisal” developed by the Council Of Tree and Landscape Tree Appraisers.
Most of our tree inventories are required in the early phases of commercial development and are submitted as part of initial civil surveys. However, tree inventories on residential properties are an excellent way to monitor tree health and maintenance.
