Meet Our ISA Certified Arborists
Tree Surveys & Mitigation
Some tree care services offered by TreeNewal include tree location surveys and assisting builders and homeowners with meeting the city requirements for tree mitigation. As part of the tree mitigation plan, our ISA Certified Arborist will inspect tree health and evaluate the condition of the trees. Suppose a tree is not sustainable, is in bad shape and dying, has substantial decay, or is diseased or infested. In this case, the TreeNewal Certified Arborist will write a letter to assist in reducing mitigation fees.
Why Have Tree Mitigation?
Tree mitigation allows for having protected trees removed on a construction site. Typically, tree mitigation for protected tree removal is calculated per caliper inch basis. Cities assign a dollar rate for each caliper inch of trees removed. The builder (owner) is responsible for paying the rate or planting trees on the same residential or commercial property with the same total DBH (diameter breast height).
Why is Tree Care & Preservation Important?
All cities have some types of tree preservation plans and ordinances. Tree preservation ordinances help protect and ensure the sustainability of existing tree health.
Proper site planning will assist in tree mitigation by identifying the situations of tree removal and preserving existing young and mature tree health. Trees will be protected during construction by fencing to reduce the negative impacts of construction.
Why Do Cities Require a Tree Survey?
Cities require tree surveys as part of the city tree mitigation and protection plan. A tree location survey shows the location of the trees on the building site plan and which trees will remain or be subject to tree removal for construction. Most cities require that the trees are tagged (numbered), common name, scientific name, diameter breast height, canopy width, the condition of tree health, and a tree care protection plan.
