Because sometimes you just need a professional opinion.
You can hire one of Arborscape’s “certified arborists” to survey your property as an independent party and write a prescription for care based on experience and the latest industry standards.
This ensures you have the correct information about your trees, and that they are receiving the best and most appropriate care. A program can be developed and managed for you if necessary.
Our surveys will assess the following:
- Pruning and health
- Structural integrity
- Prescribed treatments
- Risk exposure
Who Hires a Certified Aborist for Consulting?
Consulting practices and assessments are performed for a variety of residential and commercial clients. Anyone in need of an official report, expert advice or testimony to help facilitate land development, mitigation of a problem situation, or even testimony in a court case.
Builders and Developers:
We can provided guidance during the planning and construction phases of development projects. That includes surveying and assessment of trees on the property. In the early phases of the planning we work to classify tree species, their features and their overall health.
We will work in conjunction with planners and contractors to outline and develop protocols and practices for performing construction work around trees. After the plan is developed, we work to monitor construction activities around the protected trees on a specified site.
After the construction projects are complete we will assess the impact of work performed and make recommendations for follow up tree care. In the event that some individuals fail to plan properly, we will assist in necessary mitigation and remediation measures.
We are hired by homeowners or property owners who are trying to perform a land development project. We can help homeowners meet municipality requirements for surveying the trees on site and if justified, hopefully facilitate an approval.
Sometimes lawyers or clients involved in a lawsuit will hire us directly to help resolve a dispute. We can act as an expert witness in a court case or we can give a written statement to help determine the value of damages.
Environmental Impact Assessment
Many beneficial restrictions have been employed by municipalities and agencies to make sure new projects are done with consideration of the trees on site. Many towns will require a report to be written by a certified arborist to assess the project and how it will impact the tree population on site.
Arborscape will catalog and assess trees that will be impacted by the project. After the site is assessed a detailed report will be written and presented to address the individual statues and requirements.
A professional opinion will be rendered and recommendations will be made on how the proposed project will impact the tree population. Many times we will be asked to interpret our report and what measures can be taken to allow the project to move forward with minimal impact or disruption to the trees.

“I have been involved in the landscape and arborist profession for over 20 years and feel I am duly qualified to render an opinion about most issues regarding tree health and land development. I have received formal education in the two fields through institutions such as Rutgers University and the New York Botanical Garden.
In addition to my education and practical experience, I possess the certifications of a Certified Arborist through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) and a Certified Pesticide Applicator issued by the State of New York.
