Arboricultural reports in Sydney may not necessarily follow a predetermined structure or format. There are structural tree reports which are delivered by a team of arboriculturists to assess the state of nearby gardens, and then on the other hand, there are tree-report assessments that are given to owners of properties to advise on tree removal. These tree classification is done on a case by case basis, which means the arboriculturist has to first find out about the condition of the land, before offering their recommendation for removal.
Arborists have the benefit of access to all relevant resources. They can visit local parks, playgrounds and even places of worship, before making a detailed description of what they find. They may also have an experience of working on similar properties and can relate experiences. The arboriculturist should be able to give the owner a detailed summary of what they found to determine whether or not it is a suitable option for them.
Before the arborist report is made available to the property owner, it needs to be thoroughly reviewed by the arborist. This includes determining if the property is suitable for trees, whether or not they are mature trees, and whether or not they are suitable for the area. All aspects of the property need to be investigated, so that the arborist has a clear idea of what they have to offer.
Once the arborist has done this, they will give their recommendation to the owner. They may provide some pointers on which trees would suit their property best or provide suggestions on how to best take care of these trees once they have been removed. Sometimes the owner will ask the arborist to carry out a small-scale inspection of the property to see if trees can fit in. However, if the inspection is too extensive, the arborist may only find out a few problems before the owners ask for another arborist report.
If a tree is deemed not suitable for the property, an arborist may advise the owners on what to do next. Whether or not the property owner wants to take further action depends on the situation.
If, for example, an arborist determines that there are areas where trees might cause damage to nearby infrastructure, the arborist may recommend that the owner remove those trees. The arborist could recommend that they be replaced with smaller plants, but this is a relatively expensive option and may not fit in with a property owners budget.
Trees can also be removed if they are unhealthy or pose a danger to people or pets. If there is a history of bark damage or tree rot, an arborist may suggest that the owners seek advice on whether or not the tree should be removed.
An arborist may also recommend that they come to a property and carry out a detailed survey of the property in order to get a better understanding of how it stands. If they feel that the tree is likely to affect local vegetation, the owner may not be able to remove the tree.
However, if the arborist feels that removing the tree is not in the best interests of the residents or business, they may suggest that a company be brought in to carry out the removal process. These companies may be able to remove the tree for less than what the arborist would charge. Depending on the size of the tree and its location, the company may be able to bring in an excavator and move the tree at a reasonable cost to the property owner.
Trees that have been planted incorrectly or are in areas that do not meet current zoning can also pose a problem when it comes time for them to be removed. If the property owners do not have any experience in planting trees, they will need the help of someone experienced in this area to help them plan the removal.
A trained arborist will understand the concerns of property owners who want their trees removed and will work closely with these individuals to find a solution to the problem. Once the arborist has found a company to remove the trees, the owner can relax knowing that the problem has been taken care of.
Before you hire an arborist to look at your property, make sure you read up on their credentials and their experience. This will ensure that they are experienced and that they are qualified to work on your home or business.
