It is imperative to have a plan in place to protect the trees you’d like to keep before beginning the construction process. We provide guidance in selecting the trees that will need to be removed and those that can remain.
The construction process often causes many detrimental effects to the surrounding trees including damage from contact with heavy machinery, soil compaction, and root-system damage. It is possible to avoid and prevent these types of harm with a proper tree protection plan. We work with the builder and homeowner to select which trees to protect and establish guidelines to follow during the construction process to prevent harm to these trees.
All too often we receive calls to evaluate declining trees at a new home-site a year or two after the owners move in. Damage done to the root system of the trees during the grading and construction process is most-times irreversible and the trees are lost. This type of scenario is preventable with a proper pre-construction evaluation and development of plan to preserve your trees!
