Schedule an Arborist Report

What is an Arborist Report?

Arborist reports document the condition of the tree, damage or areas of concern, and provides information regarding the health of specific trees, the reason for the problem, and actions that may be taken to correct the problem. Recommended actions should be recorded, which may involve site remediation, boosting vigour through fertilization or pruning and removal if needed.
