General Contractors and Builders
Teaming up with a professional, ISA Certified Arborist from the beginning to the end of a construction or development project can save contractors and builders a lot of time, stress and money.
Trees are an important component in any construction or development project and can sometimes present unexpected challenges. Development and construction processes often require all existing trees on a site be accounted for including a map of location, size, species and condition. Building and development codes may restrict which trees can be removed from the site in order to accommodate construction based on tree codes for the city/county where construction will take place. If trees are being removed to accommodate construction, a separate tree removal permit may be necessary and often, new trees may be required to be planted once construction is completed. At times, tree removal is prohibited and construction plans must be modified to retain certain trees. Development codes may require that trees remaining on the site be protected during construction with routine inspections to ensure tree roots are not being disturbed and that proper tree protection fencing is in place. Not knowing tree codes relative to construction and development can delay projects and increase costs which is why it is so important to partner with an ISA Certified Arborist and local tree care provider familiar with tree codes in our area.
Northwest Tree Specialists works with many general contractors and home builders in the upper Willamette Valley and we know the importance of completing projects quickly, safely, cost effectively and without hassles or delays. We are familiar with tree codes in our area and have the knowledge and credentials to help work through necessary tree related permit and development requirements.
Northwest Tree Specialists works with many large, commercial contractors and construction companies and are very familiar with the needs and requirements that these projects present including:
- Prevailing Wages & Certified Payroll
- Job Site Safety Plans
- Public Works Bonds & BOLI bonds
- Additional Insurance Endorsements
- Arborist Reports
- Tree Removal Permits
- Tree Projection Plans
- PBOT/Lane Closures/Traffic Control
- ODOT rules & restrictions

As one of the largest tree services in Oregon, we have the staff to complete most large projects in-house without the need for sub-contractors. This allows us to meet deadlines and control the level of service we provide.
