Arboriculture & Urban Forestry

Urban trees are important assets that enhance the value and livability of a community, and they require professional management to maximize their benefit potential. Our team of consulting arborists and urban foresters are experts in ensuring that your trees remain assets to your site.

Our team works closely with development and design teams, homeowners, municipalities, and HOA’s to provide innovative and cost-effective solutions to tree-related issues. We are your partners throughout the entire project – managing your trees from site planning and design, through development and construction.

Creative Solutions for Your Project

Our team provides a wide array of urban forestry and other tree related consulting services. We thrive on providing consultation for the unique and challenging sites that require creative solutions.

Our team provides advanced tree assessments to determine the health and potential for trees on your site including supersonic airtool root investigations, advanced decay detection using a resistance drill or sonic tomography, tree appraisals, risk assessment (TRAQ), and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) scanning to learn about rooting patterns non-invasively.
