Risk and Hazard Tree Evaluation

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

When performing a visual tree assessment (VTA) it is imperative to inspect the ground around the tree, the root flare, the trunk of the tree, the major limb junctions, the scaffold limbs, individual smaller limbs, and miscellaneous hazards. It is also important to take into consideration what the tree might hit which is called the target.

Experience is important when performing this assessment because trees display difference clues to their problems and flaws.
