When you hire professional
, you will get comprehensive report noting all the trees in your property, species, conditions, etc. all of this is done by professional arborists.
Diagnosis of an individual tree consists of a complete ground-based visual inspection of the tree's crown, trunk, and roots above the ground.
The inventory captures various valuable data for each tree, including its location, species, age, condition, defects, suggested process, and priority ranking such as high, medium, or low or no action required.
There are several reasons for having a tree inventory. You can determine and increase the environmental impact of trees in your community, improve the process of planting and caring for trees, assess the social and personal benefits of trees in your community, and determine the economic value of existing trees and the ones you want to plant.
The number one environmental factor is that trees give us life, or at least an essential element of life, oxygen. They take in pollutants such as CO2, chlorine, sulfur, some amount of carbon monoxide as well.
In turn, they exhale the oxygen we breathe. Trees provide shade over parked cars reduce VOC vapor from these vehicles. They trap dust and other particles and clean the air we breathe. More trees mean cleaner air which means healthy people.
The evaporation process of trees also cools the environment, the roots absorb moisture, and the leaves evaporate this moisture. These cooling factors reduce the amount of money we spend on air conditioning and make life in the city more comfortable.
In winter, trees protect our home from the cold wind, and dense trees allow filtered sunlight to warm the house. This can save ten to fifty percent on heating. Reduced heating and air conditioning need to reduce fossil fuel consumption and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Trees also provide important habitats for animals, birds, and insects. As residential, commercial, industrial, and agricultural development consumes forests, wetlands, and grasslands, the planned urban environment plays a more critical role than ever in protecting and maintaining wildlife habitat.
Trees reduce heat in summer, decrease heat in winter, reduce water runoff, filter water before it reaches our rivers and streams, add nutrients to the soil, convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, along with clearing the air, and providing a home to wildlife.
A tree inventory will let you know the species that need special care as they might be endangered. It will also tell you which trees are better removed.
You need to hire experts for tree inventory surveys as they use the latest technology to make tree management plans accessible digitally. Therefore, always hire after confirming that a tree services company offers the best services.
