Comprehensive Tree Inventory

A tree inventory is a virtual map detailing the general health and age of all of the trees within a given area. We can prepare tree inventories for cities, companies, and individuals in order to determine which trees need maintenance and which ones might have to be replaced. This can be a great way to make sure that potentially hazardous trees are treated quickly in order to avoid all possible danger.

Creating a tree inventory is just the beginning of a good overall maintenance plan. We can then use the tree inventory to create a detailed maintenance schedule for all the trees within a property. This is especially beneficial for parks, cities, and large estates. At Northeast Horticultural Services, we can help you create a tree inventory and establish a practical maintenance schedule.

Supplemental Support

Cabling and bracing is done when mature trees have been weakened by wind or storms or have weak joints. Our staff of qualified arborists can evaluate your trees and recommend the best solution. The process begins with an arborist examining your trees to locate weak limbs and attachment points. This information is used to create a tree cabling or bracing system that will support the weak areas of the tree. Proper installation of braces and tree cabling systems is essential for the health of weak trees. When cables and braces are improperly installed, they can cause further damage to the tree.

Our cabling and bracing systems are installed according to the standards set by the American National Standards Institute. Although there is no guarantee that cables or braces will protect a tree from hurricane force winds, a well designed and correctly installed system is the most effective method for improving the ability of trees to withstand storms.

Lightning Protection

Lightning protection systems are a series of rods and cables which attempt to channel the electricity from a lightning strike through the cable to the ground safely without damaging the tree. We set up lightning protection systems to reduce the risk of damage to trees from lightning strikes. Protected trees shall not be considered a safe haven from lightning strikes.

According to the ISA, trees that should be equipped with a lightning protection system are:

  • Trees of historical interest
  • If they are of unusual value
  • Shade trees within 10 feet of a building
  • Branches hanging over buildings
  • Tall trees in recreational or park areas
  • Trees that are more likely to be struck by their location such as isolated tree on a hill, in a golf course or in a pasture

Northeast Horticultural Services can evaluate, recommend, and install a formidable lightning protection system according to our customers’ individual needs.
