Tree inspections and tree structure evaluations are important gauges in determining the strength, health and long-term stability of a tree on a residential property. Most tree owners do not have the technical training or expertise to clearly identify such problems as tree diseases, insect infestations, structural problems or weakened root systems. Tree structure evaluations and inspections by Certified Arborists can clearly identify these issues for treatment, but too often tree owners fail to get their trees routinely inspected, threatening both the life of the tree and the physical safety of those around the tree.
Unfortunately, sick or weakened trees can cause significant damage to personal property, and injury or even death to nearby residents or visitors. Recently, Houstonians were saddened to learn of a tragic tree accident in Tomball involving a large fallen tree branch that injured a young mother and took the life of her one-year-old daughter. Although accidents can occur at any time, tree inspections can help reveal existing or potential problems that can be treated and corrected proactively to prevent injuries or fatalities on a property.
Tree inspections and structural evaluations can benefit property owners financially by revealing tree problems before they destroy the health and value of a tree. For example, early detection of tree diseases and insect infestations allows property owners to get effective treatment services that preserve the health, beauty and value of a tree. The cost of tree diseases or insect treatment is significantly less than the cost of tree removal and tree replacement if it does not survive the disease or insect infestation.
Additionally, tree owners and their visitors are better protected from injury or property damage due to fallen or weakened trees because of tree inspections and structural evaluations. Tree inspections by Certified Arborists can reveal damaged or broken limbs that need to be removed for safety reasons, as well as identify issues with the root system that make the tree less secure. Trees that are weakened or unstable because of compromised root systems or uneven growth can be corrected or stabilized through tree trimming or cabling and bracing. These proactive steps can help avoid physical injury due to falling branches, and also prevent property damage caused by toppled or uprooted trees during severe weather.
