For more than 15 years, ArborPro has managed GPS tree inventories, tree risk assessments, tree management plans and tree canopy assessments for municipalities, universities and home owner’s associations throughout the United States and Canada.
A tree inventory saves you time and money now, while providing continuing benefits, year after year. When you locate and identify hazardous trees, you greatly reduce liability for personal injuries and property damage. In addition, you reduce tree maintenance costs because you can proactively create strategic work orders for your tree crews, making their job easier and more efficient.
A healthy tree canopy adds great value to the outdoor experience. When you can show the value of the trees in their community – how they improve air quality, provide shade and increase property values – they begin to care for the trees. And, that’s a win for everyone!
Urban Forest Management Plans
ArborPro has developed urban forest management plans for hundreds of municipalities and universities across the country. Using data collected from your inventory, we format a plan that not only reduces hazards and liabilities but maintains a safe and healthy urban forest. Your plan will include:
- Executive Summary.
- Tree inventory results and highlights.
- Benefits of a Healthy Urban Forest.
- Staff training recommendations.
- How to implement your management program.
- How to improve maintenance efficiency.
- Maintenance priorities based on arborists observation.
- Long term, proactive urban forest maintenance plan & schedule.
- Recommended species list.
The goal of vegetation management is to provide safe transmission and distribution services and to minimize disruptions caused by trees and other vegetation, while maintaining a harmonious relationship with the environment. Properly maintained rights-of-way are essential to providing safety for utility workers and customers. We have worked on routine patrolling for years, but our expertise is in hazardous tree assessment.
ArborPro, Inc. provides a variety of arboriculture consulting services for both public and private properties. Using current arboriculture science established by the International Society of Arboriculture and the Tree Care Industry Association, ArborPro provides the most accurate, up-to-date information about tree’ current condition.
If you are an urban forester, facilities manager or homeowners’ association member, you may be responsible for the specific landscape and tree requirements that meet safety and aesthetic standards. To ensure proactive management, you need a basic knowledge of tree assets within your community. By starting with a simple GIS tree inventory we can assess tree condition and recommend proactive maintenance. This will reduce the risk of tree failure that could potentially damage property or injure people. If legal issues do arise, you’ll be equipped with all the data you need to protect your best interests.
