That way we are able to maintain order within a region before things become too problematic. Tree risk management itself involves the process of inspecting and assessing trees for their potential to injure people or damage property. For example, in a matter of the recent storms and seismic quakes, we wound want to eliminate any trees that lean. As they have the potential to collapse and damage property and potentially inflict harm to residents. When a tree is evaluated, the term traditionally used to describe a tree which has been evaluated as having failure potential is called “hazard” or “hazardous”. Tree risk management should not be limited to tree excavation. A successful tree risk management plan should integrate tree planting and regular tree pruning programs to promote healthy and structurally sound trees.
