A professional tree inspection is a vital part of maintaining a healthy landscape. An arborist will
inspect your trees for any disease or damage that could pose a danger to safety. An arborist can
identify diseases and other problems early to prevent further damage and loss. Trees are often
beautiful additions to the landscape, but they can also be susceptible to disease and pests. A
certified arborist is familiar with tree diseases, pests, and watering requirements and can spot
these issues during an inspection.
An arborist trained in measuring the DBH (distance from the top to base) is what an arborist
uses to estimate the tree’s height. The angle between the points is greater that 90 degrees. An
arborist will take into account factors such as how large the tree may be and where people might
be. The inspector will then create and map that shows the relative locations of each tree to the
rest of the trees on the site.
Tree inspectors may also use a low-tech device for detecting internal decay in large roots and
trunks. A decayed tree sounds similar to a drum, but it is much easier to spot when there is more
space. The cordless drill is simple to use and causes very few wounds. Modern cordless drills
have the ability to drill multiple radiuses, which is very useful for initial inspection.

A tree inspection can help you detect potential problems before they worsen. Tree diseases can
be identified by symptoms. An arborist is able to identify and correct any issues before they get
worse. The structural condition of trees is also analyzed, and possible fixes are suggested to
improve their health. While some of these problems may be obvious, others might not. A
professional tree inspector is able to spot and repair any damage that may be worsening and
affecting the health of your entire landscape.
Cracks or deep crevices on a treeâ€TMs trunk should be reported immediately. A certified
arborist will recommend strengthening the affected trunk branch if it is damaged or weakening.
Sometimes improper pruning can lead to problems with growth. A certified arborist can make
recommendations to remedy these problems by reinforcing weak crotch angles and inserting
cables. A tree’s absorbing roots are often invisible and may look healthy but may be
The next step is identifying symptoms of tree problems. A missing bark is a sign you have a
disease or some form of decay. A tree with missing bark could indicate that it is dead or dying or
that it has been struck by lightning. If this is the case it is time to have a professional tree
inspection. These symptoms could indicate a range of problems. The best way to find the
problem is before it has an impact on the entire tree or the surrounding area.
Level 2 basic assessments include walking around the trees, looking for defects on all visible
parts of the tree. Arborists can also use probes to check for open cavities. Arborists can perform
these basic assessments to determine if a more thorough evaluation is required. The
evaluations can ultimately determine if a tree will fall or not. These evaluations are included in a
risk assessment. After the assessment is complete, the client may be able to hire a tree service
provider or tree care provider.
