First, we assist in site development planning, either for new tree installs or for tree retention. For installs, we provide recommendations for proper tree selection, location, and planting techniques to best populate a developing site, not only in the short term, but more importantly in the long term. One of the biggest mistakes made in site development is installing new trees that are not appropriate for the site or location and need to be removed just a few years later.
If tree retention is part of site development, we highly recommend our tree inventory service for a pre-development site report. With a tree inventory you will have a comprehensive and detailed listing of all the trees within your development on our easy access, interactive, digital software platform. Tree inventories assist in development of protection and preservation plan both for retained trees and new infrastructure. Trees require protection zones that minimize construction impact and give them the best chance of adapting to their new surroundings. If protection and preservation are not feasible, there is a good chance we would recommend tree removal prior to development. Infrastructure protection is important as retained trees will continue to grow and can impact building foundations, sidewalks, and roads.
Tree Inventories also provide data-based, highly accurate calculations of tree canopy coverage. Regulators often rely on inaccurate estimates from site inspections to determine canopy coverage. With our tree inventory software, you will have accurate current and proposed canopy coverage statistics at your disposal.
Secondly, once planning is complete, NW Tree Specialist can provide any necessary tree related services including pre-construction tree removals, crown cleaning and raising on retained trees, and root inspection during excavation and/or construction. Post construction services include tree healthcare to reduce stress related to new development and future potential changes to the site. Tree inventories are also beneficial for post development. Questions and concerns can be addressed without the need for time consuming site visits
Working with a Certified Arborist from NW Tree Specialist can help relieve the burden to civil engineers and developers sometimes associated with dealing with large trees on a site to be developed.
