What is Hazardous Tree?

A tree that is potentially hazardous may experience the following symptoms: movement in the root, movement in the structure, cracking around the base of the tree, soil built up around the base of the tree, excessive sap, infestation, fungus, fungus at base of the tree, bracket fungus, or dead wood. These are visible symptoms but may go unnoticed by the average person.

What could happen if a hazardous tree goes unnoticed?

If a hazardous tree goes unnoticed, it may spread its hazard to other trees or plants in the surrounding area. It is also possible that it will not hold up well in case of a storm. Many hazardous trees risk the potential of falling from their base, wood decay, or failure due to bracket fungus. The consequences can be severe. It is important to consult with your arborist regarding any potentially hazardous trees.

What is Agility’s process for dealing with hazardous trees?

At Agility, we will do a site and risk assessment prior to removing a hazardous tree. Our professionals will determine how and what are the best approaches for tree removal. This can occur on a case by case basis and often depends on the particular tree. We will also asses the area to see if mechanical assistance, such as use of a crane, could be required for removal.

Can a property owner be liable for hazardous trees?

A property owner may or may not be aware that a hazardous tree is on the premises. For this reason, they cannot be made liable for a hazardous tree. If you are not a tree professional, you are not expected to know. Please contact us today to have a qualified arborist come and inspect.
