ArborPro has provided GPS Tree Inventories, Tree Risk Assessments, Tree Management Plans and Tree Canopy Assessments for Municipalities, Universities and Home Owner’s Associations for over 14 years. ArborPro has managed projects all over the United States and Canada.
Having a tree inventory is a time and money saving tool that will have many benefits, year after year. The liability factor of damage to property and people will be greatly reduced when hazardous trees are located and identified. Tree maintenance costs will be reduced with the ability to create work orders for tree crews, making their job easier and saving time. A healthy tree canopy can only add value to the outdoor experience. We have found that being able to show residents the value of the trees within their community in air quality and shade among multiple other traits, often relates to how people care for the trees within their community and that is advantageous to everyone.
Urban Forest Management Plans
ArborPro has created Urban Forest Management Plans for hundreds of municipalities and universities across the country. With the data collected from your inventory, we will format a plan to reduce hazards and liabilities and not only grow but maintain a safe and healthy urban forest. Information in your plan will include;
- Executive Summary
- Tree Inventory Results and Highlights.
- Benefits of a Healthy Urban Forest.
- Recommendations on Staff Training and Implementing the Management Program.
- Recommendations on ways to improve maintenance efficiency.
- Priority list of maintenance work based on arborist observation.
- Long term proactive urban forest maintenance plan and schedule.
- Recommended tree species list.
Urban Tree Canopy Assessment
Urban Tree Canopy Assessments provide important information for prioritization and future planning of your urban, community or campus forest. With this data you can answer questions like;
- What is the preferable Tree Canopy?
- Where is it financially efficient to plants trees?
- Where is it socially desirable to plant trees?
- What is the potential tree canopy?
Improving your Tree Canopy can add many benefits to your community from providing more shade to reduce summer temperatures, increased carbon sequestration and intercepting rainfall that would otherwise transport potential pollutants from hard surfaces into your storm drainage system. A healthy tree canopy provides wildlife habitat, increases property values, beautifies your community and improves quality of life.
ArborPro, Inc. provides a variety of arboriculture consulting services for both public and private properties. By utilizing current arboriculture science established by the International Society of Arboriculture and the Tree Care Industry Association, ArborPro is qualified to provide the most accurate, up-to-date information about the current state of your trees.
If you are an Urban Forester, Facilities Manager or part of a homeowners association, it is your duty to meet specific landscape and tree requirements for safety and aesthetics. To ensure proactive management, you must have a basic knowledge of tree assets within your community. This starts with a simple GIS tree inventory that assesses tree health condition and recommends proactive maintenance recommendations to reduce the risk of a tree failure that might impact people and property. If any legal issues arise, you’ll be equipped with all of the necessary information to protect your best interests.
