Commercial Tree Care Vs. Residential Tree Care

Your trees have the potential to be one of the most beautiful parts of your landscape, so its important that you take care of them. As a commercial tree care company, Arborwell Professional Tree Management has ISA-certified arborists that have the experience, knowledge and equipment to keep your trees healthy.

Often, those who have little knowledge of trees hire themselves out for residential tree care (handymen, guy with a pickup and a chainsaw etc.). It also may be tempting to take care of your trees yourself or with the help of an employee, but it can be a tricky and sometimes dangerous task. Arborwell serves HOAs, estates and commercial properties and can deal with all tree-related issues that arise, safely and efficiently!

Do You Need to Request an Arborist Appraisal?

Requesting an arborist appraisal is an essential step when developing land, assessing your property and managing your landscape.

What does an appraisal tell you?

An arborist appraisal can help you understand the value your trees add to your property by assessing, recommending and clarifying your tree’s needs including:

  • Tree type and condition. This will help you to understand the value of your trees to your commercial property value by informing you of their life expectancy, structural integrity, and any disease or pest issues. We also detail how to enhance your tree health through long-term care to add more value to your property.
  • Recommend tree removals and relocations. Cities often require permits before you can remove trees, and an arborist appraisal can help you achieve that. Our experts identify the reasons for removal when trees are hazardous, or relocation plans during landscape or structural renovation. They also include details on how to protect trees during relocation, to ensure their survival.
  • Giving details of the necessary tree work. An appraisal is a professional report that will help you and the city understand what work your trees require. It will also describe how to do it in a way that preserves and protects your trees. Our appraisal will help you through all the steps of your property development or management.

Tree and Brush Removal Laws Vary by State and City

The laws surrounding tree and brush removal can be complex and sometimes difficult to understand. Laws vary between states and even cities, largely because of the wide variety of climates that occur across America and because of the important role that trees and brush play in local ecosystems.

Arborwell Professional Tree Management provides arborist and tree maintenance services for commercial properties, estates, municipalities and HOA’s and we are well versed in local laws concerning the removal of trees and brush. We can help you to navigate these laws and get you the permits you need to continue developing your property.

Why are tree removal laws so different?

Tree and brush removal laws are varied based on location because of different environmental factors and needs. In California, there are strict laws regarding vegetation within 100 feet of structures. The law states:

  • The first thirty feet from a structure must be clear of all dead plant material.
  • Tree branches must be ten feet from chimneys and other trees.
  • The last seventy feet must focus on fuel reduction, meaning lawns should be mowed regularly and areas underneath trees should be clear.

These laws aim to improve wildfire safety by reducing the chance of buildings and structures burning down. In places like Seattle, trees and brush play an important role in the ecosystems so laws revolve around retaining vegetation:

  • There are limits to the number of trees you can cut down.
  • You need a permit to remove non-native or invasive vegetation and plant native species.
  • You need permits to remove trees and vegetation in landslide prone and steeply sloped areas.

These are just a taste of the differences in tree and brush removal laws in California and Seattle. Before you go ahead with your property development be sure you are aware of your local laws and the permits you need to obtain!

At Arborwell Professional Tree Management our arborists are knowledgeable of local laws regarding tree removals and can help you understand them. Regardless of past experiences with tree and brush removal, we recommend to always check with your local government before removal as they will have the latest information on potential law changes.
