What is an Arborist Report?


An arborist report is a document prepared by a certified arborist that assesses the health, condition, and safety of trees on a property. It’s crucial for property owners, developers, and local governments to evaluate the impact of tree removal, pruning, or development on the environment, neighboring properties, and public safety. Here, we’ll explore what arborist reports are, why they matter.

  1. Development applications: Developers may require an arborist report to assess the impact of a proposed development on existing trees and vegetation. Local governments may also require an arborist report as part of the development application process.
  2. Tree removal: Property owners may require an arborist report before removing a tree to assess its health, safety, and potential impact on the surrounding environment and neighboring properties.
  3. Tree preservation orders: Local governments may require an arborist report before issuing a tree preservation order to assess the health and value of the tree.
  4. Construction projects: Construction companies may require an arborist report to evaluate the impact of construction activities on nearby trees and vegetation.
  5. Property sales: Real estate agents may recommend an arborist report to prospective buyers to assess the condition and safety of trees on the property.
  6. Risk management: Property owners and local governments may require an arborist report to assess the safety of trees in public spaces or on private property and develop a management plan to mitigate any risks.
