Inspecting for proper planting techniques helps to ensure that a tree's root collar is located above grade.
Often by the time a tree shows outward signs of distress like early loss of leaves or decay, the underlying issue has already progressed to the late stages. As experts in local conditions and tree problems, Bartlett arborists meet with property-owners to provide tree and shrub inspections. This process is invaluable in uncovering issues before they cause serious damage.
During an inspection, an arborist can check the overall health of the trees, look for signs of pest and disease infestations, identify any structural problems, and determine soil requirements. Based on the information found, the arborist will then make recommendations on any treatments required. Much like a “doctor’s checkup,” this type of visit is essential to maintaining healthy trees.
