Tree Risk Assessment
Tree Risk Assessments were established to identify trees that may pose a threat to people or property. Our International Society of Arboriculture–certified arborists and Tree Risk Assessment qualified professionals use a three-level process to identify, analyze and evaluate a tree’s risk.Contact Us
How We Do It
The three levels of tree risk assessment
Level 1: Limited Visual Assessment quickly assesses larger specified areas to identify trees at risk.
Level 2: Basic Assessment evaluates 360 degrees of the tree and the surrounding site.
Level 3: Advanced Assessment may include aerial or climbing inspection and in-depth root inspection.
A Level 3 Advanced Assessment report is provided to our client, containing all site observations, pictures, testing reports, laboratory analysis reports and recommendation options for mitigating all risks.

Why We Do It
Safety is our top priority
As trees mature, they have the potential of becoming liabilities and are more likely to develop conditions that can increase the likelihood of branch or whole-tree failure. At Townsend Arborcare, we provide tree risk assessments on trees near structures, playgrounds, streets and sidewalks, or any other area where trees may pose a risk to persons or property.

Benefits from the ground up
1. Reduce liability
Ensuring a tree is structurally sound with no potential risk of failures reduces your property’s liability and increases the life and longevity of your trees.
2. The best solution
Trees can increase your property value if they are healthy, but a damaged tree can also be detrimental. Our arborists are always looking at both sides of the coin when offering solutions.
3. A Thorough Assessment
Our goal is to mitigate risk and provide you with an accurate assessment that provides reasonable and proportionate information to every condition or situation on your property.
