A management plan involves a complete evaluation of your site or facility; taking into consideration all aspects of the landscape, including a tree inventory, insect and pest management, soil and root health and maintenance requirements. The final results of the plan can be an important management tool for property managers and administrators.
A tree inventory on your property can be a great first step in a long term management program. The inventory will identify the quality and long-term viability of various trees providing a baseline for planning. Tree inventories are typically included as part of a management plan.
Tree Preservation Programs for Construction Projects:
Construction around trees can be traumatic. A pre-construction consultation is generally designed to protect the plants and document their situation in advance. Post construction consultations may involve quantifying and mitigate damage that has already occurred.
An appraisal following a natural or man-made incident can be extremely valuable to a property owner. Landscape trees have significance in architectural, engineering, climatic and aesthetic purposes. An accurate appraisal of landscape trees is often required in legal disputes, damage claims or casualty loss by insurance companies. These services are performed by our staff of consulting arborists and ISA Certified Arborists.
Tree Appraisal and Damage Assessment: An expert insurance
Project Management and Landscape Assessment Planning: Often a construction project; be it residential or commercial, can benefit from input from an arborist during the planning stage (preferably during the design stage). The arborists at Owen Tree Service can provide guidance and support for your planner, engineers, and contractors prior to the start of a project, saving you money on your investment.
Society of Arboriculture, good landscaping can boost the market value of a property from 5% to 20%. Trees are therefore tangible assets to your property value. It is possible to have comprehensive coverage riders added to home insurance policies to cover at least limited storm losses to shade and ornamental trees, if not more.
The value of landscape trees located on your property can be substantial. According to the International Society of Arboriculture, good landscaping can boost the market value of a property from 5% to 20%. Trees are therefore tangible assets to your property value. It is possible to have comprehensive coverage riders added to home insurance policies to cover at least limited storm losses to shade and ornamental trees, if not more.
Property owners should take photographs of their landscape trees every two or three years to document tree number, size, condition, and appearance to protect against loss. If a loss does occur, photographs should be taken and, if possible, the tree should be appraised before removal.
This is where we can help. Owen Tree Service offers tree consulting appraisal for residential and commercial clients throughout Southeastern Michigan.
Site Consultation: We offer one-on-one discussion of the client's needs such as insect, disease, cultural problems, or to assess storm damage.
Design: After consultation, a landscape or garden design may be drawn, defining garden areas, and determining appropriate use of plants, and additional features needed. If a licensed landscape architect or architectural skills are required, such services are subcontracted, or we'll work with a client's architect or help locate one in the area.
Plant Selection: We will work with the client to find the right trees and shrubs, for the right place in your landscape. We'll work with the customer to pick the woody plants that have the potential to survive long term, and be insect and disease free. We can help decide the size, cost, and availability of woody plant material needed for your landscape.
Plant Identification: Do you have trees, shrubs, or vines on your property that you cannot identify? We can identify the trees, shrubs, and vines, plus provide a tree hazard assessment, tree valuation and proper tree and shrub care information for each tree and shrub species.
Landscape Installation: We will oversee or perform all aspects of landscape installation or supervise the client's installation crew, and work with the client to ensure proper planting is being performed on their property.
Maintenance: We are available for long term monitoring of landscapes, and to give advice regarding proper mulching, watering, fertilization, pruning and weed control, insect control, and disease control.
Natural Areas Management: Have an existing natural area, or an interest in development of natural areas on your property? We can assist you in planning for its development needs, and plant selections suited for the local climate and local wildlife.
