Expert Tree Inspection and Evaluation of Tree Conditions
Peninsula Urban Forestry, LLC provides expert, science and experience-based investigations and evaluations of tree condition and tree risk. Trees are complex, constantly growing, living organisms. Their health is important to evaluate and monitor for signs of deterioration. Our consulting Arborists begin by interviewing tree owners and property managers to identify trends and establish a history of the tree. This narrative of tree history helps us evaluate for exposure to disease, water and nutrient issues, site limitations and pests and pathogens. Trees are then examined to evaluate signs & symptoms of tree disease, physiological stress, insect activity, tree structure, and other issues. During tree inspection, we employ the use of such tools as sounding hammers, soil compaction probes, UAV’s (drones), root crown excavations, microscopes, knives and other tools that allow the evaluator an intimate look at trees.
Unlike most other consulting arborists, we have two consulting arborists who also climb trees. Doing so provides us an insight into tree health and structure many other consulting arborists don’t have. Both arborists on staff are trained and certified as ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualified. As such our arborists are qualified to file applications for tree removal permits with municipalities throughout the Olympic Peninsula and Puget Sound Region.
Our Certified Arborists inspect and evaluate trees within Port Angeles, Sequim Port Townsend, Poulsbo, Bainbridge Island, Oak Harbor, down to Shelton, Lacey, Olympia and Tumwater.
