Design Support

A certified arborist knows the value of existing trees and can provide suggestions to protect them while maximizing design options.

Arborist Services for Design Support

Heritage Tree Care provides arborist services for landscape architects and designers during the pre-planning stage of a project. Contractors call us for early assessment and evaluation of existing trees and to prepare the tree inventory for the tree permitting process.

Understanding the Needs of Client, Designer, and Builder

Before beginning the design process, we recommend consulting an arborist to determine the health of each tree before building around them. Heritage trees are great, but it’s a big problem if you plan your project around them, and then they die.

We perform root crown inspections and aerial examinations as part of the risk assessment process. A certified arborist knows the value of existing treees and can provide suggestions to protect them while maximizing design options.
