Risk and Hazard Tree Evaluation

Jud Scott, Consulting Arborist uses years of arborist expertise to evaluate potentially hazardous trees.  The first means of examination is often a Visual Tree Assessment (VTA) which inspects the ground around the tree, the root flare, the trunk, limb junctions and scaffold limbs. Also taken into consideration are what the tree might hit should it fail (i.e. the target).

As long as arborists have been examining trees we have used external characteristics to give us clues about internal conditions and assess structural stability.

Jud Scott has won national awards from the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) for the hazard tree recognition program.
