Hazard Tree Evaluation

Hazard Tree Evaluation

When trees are badly damaged, they become a hazard. These trees can pose a potential safety risk to people and property. A hazard tree may fall and injure people or cause damage to vehicles, houses, and utility lines. Northeast Horticultural Services offers hazard tree evaluation services in Fairfield, Westport, Weston, and the surrounding areas in Connecticut.

There are several signs that indicate a tree may pose a safety hazard. If a tree has been struck by lightning, has cracks, loose bark, visible cavities, root rot, discoloration, or other structural problems, it may be a hazardous tree. When the problem is detected early enough, it may be possible to correct the problem by improving the tree’s environment, rather than cutting it down.

We provide a thorough tree evaluation to assess the health of the tree and determine the best solution. Our arborists consider several factors when evaluating trees, including the environmental conditions, status of the root system, signs of decay, and the history of the specific tree. In some cases, the health of the tree can be restored through pruning, fertilizing, mulching or air spading. In other situations, tree removal may be required.

If you hope to preserve your trees, early hazard tree identification is essential. Waiting too long can result in further damage to the tree that will require tree removal.
