Tree Preservation and Retention- Construction occurring near
trees must be carefully planned to limit soil compaction and root damage, as well as broken branches and trunk abrasion, if the trees on site are
to be preserved. We work with developers and construction companies to determine how to best preserve desired trees during site development, working with them from the
planning stage, until construction is complete.
Hazard Tree Assessments and Surveys - Living with trees requires accepting a certain degree of risk. All trees will eventually fall down
and both private property owners and municipal governments have a duty to act responsibly to manage this risk. Having a “documented inspection program” of the
trees on your property, designed to identify any structural problems of the crown, trunk or roots, is a good way to help limit tree-related
liability. Amy Greene Environmental has a Certified Tree Risk Assessor on staff.
Landscape and Tree Company Supervision- Care must be taken during all types of tree work to adhere to Industry
standards. A single instance of improper pruning can initiate a cascade of health and structural problems that will decrease the health and increase the liability of
that tree for as long as it stands. A tree that is planted incorrectly, over-mulched, or is simply the wrong species for a particular site, has a greatly reduced chance of
long-term survival. Our arborists can monitor tree care activities to ensure that industry standards of care and best
management practices are followed.
Tree Inventories- We use GPS and GIS systems, along with physical
examination, to accurately define the quantity, composition, and condition of the trees in a community or estate, allowing for management decisions to be
made based on accurate and up to date information. The first step in developing any Community Forestry Management Plan is to conduct a tree inventory.
Diagnosis of Tree and Landscape Problems- When a tree shows signs of stress or decline, such as thin or off-color foliage, branch tip
dieback, or early fall color, being able to quickly and accurately determine the cause is vital to increasing its chance of recovery. Whether the problem is an insect,
disease, or abiotic factor, Amy Greene Environmental has the ability to identify the issue and recommend effective treatments.
Tree Valuation/Tree Appraisal- Depending on the particular situation a tree may have no value at all or it may be valued at tens of
thousands of dollars. We use several recognized methods of tree appraisal, as described by the Guide for Plant Appraisal, 9th ed., by the Council of Tree and Landscape
Appraisers, to determine the value of a tree.
Writing Planting and Care Specifications- Properly written specifications help ensure that tree planting and other work is performed in a
systematic and consistent manner. We start with the ANSI A300 Standards and tailor your specifications to your individual situation.
Contract Consulting Arborist Service- We supply consulting arborist services on a long or short-term contract basis to construction
companies, developers, municipalities, and other parties.
