Tree Hazard Checklist

Consider these questions to decide whether or not there is a potential tree hazard:

  • Are there large dead branches in the tree?
  • Are there detached branches hanging in the tree?
  • Does the tree have cavities or rotten wood along the trunk or in major branches?
  • Are mushrooms present at the base of the tree?
  • Are there cracks or splits in the trunk or where branches are attached?
  • Have any branches fallen from the tree?
  • Have adjacent trees fallen over or died?
  • Do many of the major branches arise from one point on the trunk?
  • Have the roots been broken off, injured, or damaged by lowering the soil level, installing pavement, repairing sidewalks, or digging trenches?
  • Has the site recently been changed by construction, raising the soil level, or installing lawns?
  • Have the leaves prematurely developed an unusual color or size?
  • Have trees in adjacent wooded areas been removed?
  • Has the tree been topped or otherwise heavily pruned

If any of the hazards on the list are apparent or you are not sure please call (086) 106-9913 / (085) 286-8749 and we will call out to  do a free inspection and quote for remedial work  if necessary.

Making the proper cut is very important in order to encourage proper wound closure.

Identify the Branch Collar: it can usually be identified by the swollen tissue where the branch attaches to the main stem or trunk.
