Tree Risk Assessment
Trees offer many benefits to homeowners and the community but can also threaten people and property. Proper risk assessment is critical in evaluating potential hazard trees. Unprofessional advice about the hazards posed by trees tends to fall into one of two extremes: dismissive of danger and unappreciative of the consequences of tree failure, or excessively risk averse and recommending removal even in situations where it isn't warranted.
Austin Tree Experts arborists are trained in assessing decay and have the years of experience to properly evaluate hazard trees according to industry standards. In some situations we can also suggest alternatives to removal, such as canopy reduction, cabling, or even target removal. We can also assist with the preparation of the City of Austin's formal Tree Risk Evaluation Form.
