The Importance of Tree Surveys

Comprehensive Tree Reports by Coastal Tree Care

tree surveyA tree survey involves assessing and reporting issues related to tree maintenance, care, and management. Sometimes tree surveys, also called tree reports, are required for legal purposes. If your property faces public areas, you may need a tree survey to prove the safety of trees on your land. In other cases, homeowners commission tree reports from certified arborists to help assess the value of their property. With the expertise of our ISA-certified arborists, Coastal Tree Care delivers tree surveys to property owners in San Diego, Coronado, Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, and Pacific Beach.

What is a Tree Survey?

Tree surveys are arborist reports that can be used as legal documents related to your property. They may include the following information:

  • Overall health of your trees
  • Diagnosis of pests
  • Assessment of diseases
  • Recommended treatments
  • Assessment of safety, liabilities, and hazards

A certified arborist can visit your property, conduct the survey, and provide a report with their conclusions and recommendations.

Tree Surveys of the Entire Property

Sometimes, property owners require tree surveys that include detailed maps of all the trees on their property. These inventories include the species, location, health, diameter, and condition of each tree. This type of survey is typically required for landscape management plans or commercial sites that need an inventory of property assets.

What Occurs During Tree Surveys?

A Coastal Tree Care tree survey includes recommendations such as treatment plans or removal of trees posing a safety risk. During the survey, the arborist conducts the following tasks:

  • Measuring and documenting various tree species
  • Noting the size of trees and whether the size or position violates any local ordinances
  • Documenting the age, position, and health of each tree on the property
