The Ins and Outs of a Consulting Arborist Appointment

Monster Tree Service arborist consultants are authoritative experts on tree health. We deliver a factual, comprehensive overview of the health, safety, and condition of your trees, shrubs, and other vegetation. This is achieved by conducting tree inspections, assessing risks, drafting arborist reports, and prescribing pest, soil, and disease treatments.

As we assess your trees and shrubs, we will:

  • Diagnose problems
  • Help with insurance claims
  • Evaluate potential tree dangers
  • Identify insect infestations
  • Check for diseases
  • Offer tree preservation advice
  • Analyze soil health
  • And so much more!

At the end of our walkthrough, we will provide a proposal and recommend further services to help your trees and shrubs thrive. Our goal is to develop a course of action and management plan that suits your priorities and budget.

The Importance of Consulting a Professional Arborist

Most of our expert consultants are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture* (ISA), the preeminent certification for arborists worldwide. To maintain a certified arborist license, one must have over three years of professional tree care experience or a degree in arboriculture, pass a 200-question exam, and recertify every three years.

Our ISA Arborist Experts Provide Professional Inspection Services

Our consulting arborists provide numerous services, including:

Tree inventories

Tree inventories gather vital data on tree size, species, health, location, and potential dangers. A thorough tree inventory is important when developing comprehensive urban, construction, and/or forestry management plans. If your trees are damaged during a storm, a tree inventory can be an invaluable part of filing claims.

We offer this service case-by-case to homeowners and small HOAs/commercial properties. We are not equipped to offer this service to larger properties or on a municipal level. Contact us to find out more about whether this service is available for your property.

Tree protection

Our arborist consultants can examine your construction or other site to offer guidance on how to keep trees and plant life safe from machinery and soil compaction during construction processes.

Tree risk assessment

One of the primary reasons for an arborist consultation is to assess potential tree dangers and recommend preventive measures. The goal of a tree risk assessment is to determine if a tree can be saved or should be removed based on its structural integrity and risk of failure. Knowing the severity of unsafe tree conditions will allow you to make informed and proactive decisions that provide peace of mind and lower your potential liability.

Tree failure assessment

Our consultants can help assess the causes of tree failure after a tree dies. We will thoroughly examine each section using standardized methods to determine the most likely cause, determine if the problem may impact other trees, and if necessary, make a prevention plan. 

Tree root appraisal

Tree root systems are the literal anchor and foundation for any tree as well as a pathway for nutrients from the soil. Accordingly, their health is a top priority. A tree root appraisal keeps you updated on the condition of your tree roots and includes preventive tips on how to avoid root disease and failure.

Our tree root appraisal will examine:

  • Soil compaction – Heavy clay subsoils and soil compaction can restrict oxygen and water uptake, harming and even killing many types of trees.
  • Soil depth – Tree roots rely on soil to extract nutrients, anchor, and breathe. When adding and removing soil, a tree’s root system can be threatened. Let us help your root systems thrive by assessing the soil depth.
  • Overwatering/underwatering – Overwatering can saturate the soil so much it restricts the flow of oxygen, thereby suffocating tree roots. Underwatering will dehydrate tree roots – causing them to whither. Both can cause root rot.
  • Fertilizer balance – Excess fertilizer can kill tree roots, while insufficient fertilizer will deprive tree roots of essential minerals needed to stay healthy. We will help you find the right balance.
  • Trenching, construction work, and digging – Digging trenches, laying pavement, boring holes, and other work involving soil excavation and heavy-duty machinery can significantly threaten root systems. We provide guidance on how to dig without harming the root systems of nearby trees.

And more!

We don’t stop there! Our arborists also offer nursery tree appraisals, expert witness testimonies for paperwork, insect and disease management, municipal ordinance development, and tree planting programs.

Commercial Properties Benefit from Consulting Arborist Services Too!

Beyond surveying residential homes, our consultants advise commercial and municipal entities, including:

  • Community managers. Avoid unnecessary costs in your community through proactive maintenance! A consultant can provide a tree inventory and assessment to help you create short and long-term maintenance plans for public or private properties.
  • Municipalities. If a dangerous tree is close to structures or pedestrians, we highly recommend remedial action. Similarly, if a historic tree is creating a challenge for a park, walking trail, or any municipal project, we can help you assess its preservation value and/or find ways to work around the tree.
  • Homeowner associations (HOAs). We help homeowner associations create cost-effective maintenance plans – recommending safe, healthy, and durable trees for shared spaces. We also assess shared landscapes to help HOAs proactively prevent potential tree loss and damage.
  • Property management companies. Our consultants can help you create landscaping budgets and protect your property against tree collapse. We provide comprehensive tree assessments of risks and dangers and treatment advice for pest infestations and diseases.
  • Real estate agents. Real estate agents may require an arborist’s expert guidance in matters dealing with property assessments and inspections. Our trained arborists provide expert third-party appraisals of the trees on a property for sale.
  • Landscape professionals. If you’re concerned about the potential dangers of planting certain tree species/sizes, we can assess the prospective area to help you make practical decisions. Our arborists can assist with root mapping, supervision of work near trees, and land planning. We offer sound, detailed assessments to help you make a knowledgeable decision about removing trees or building around them.
  • Tree service providers. Drawing upon years of experience and education, our ISA-certified arborists* offer advice on the structure, health, and safety of trees beyond standard arborist training. This will allow you to take the best course of action.
  • And more. Our goal is to offer professional estimates, assessments, and advice on all matters about trees. We may recommend nutrients, pest control, site remediation, pruning, and/or immediate removal to mitigate dangers. Our services apply to property owners in countless industries.

Our History

In 2008, Monster Tree Service began as a small tree service company providing arboricultural care to Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey. Our founder was committed to promoting the growth of healthy trees and giving homeowners unparalleled service while taking care of their yards and homes. As a result, when other tree service businesses struggled to find jobs, our company kept working through every season, growing and expanding like the trees we care for.

Now we’ve become the nation’s first tree care franchise for a simple reason: Our approach works. Customers love working with us because we’re honest. When we tell customers they do or don’t need a particular service, they know we mean it. Because we care about trees, we’ll always fight for ways to rehabilitate your tree rather than remove it. When we do recommend removal, it’s because we know it’s the only thing that’s safe for your home and family.
