Arboricultural Impact Assessment Report
An Arboricultural Impact Assessment Report (AIAR) contains the relevant information from the Preliminary Tree Assessment Report (PTA), plus discusses the impact the development will have on the trees and recommendations on the measures to be taken to protect the trees for the duration of the development.
Tree Maintenance Reports
A Tree Maintenance Report is a document involving the correct measures to perform on a tree or trees after; a storm event, accidental or intentional tree poisoning, illegal tree pruning or any other factor that has negatively affected the tree/s health.

Our team of certified arborists has the experience and expertise to assess the risk your trees pose to your school, staff and students and provide recommendations to mitigate any potential hazards.

Risk Assessments (QTRA)
A Risk Assessment is an inspection of a tree or trees to determine if there are any hazards present in the tree and the risk associated with those hazards. Our Arborists use the Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA) method.
QTRA is an assessment of the hazards posed by a tree and their likelihood of failure, compounded by the likelihood of impacting a person or property. It provides the Arborist with a numerical value (i.e. 1:100,000 chance of impact) rather than categorising it as High, Medium or Low risk.
Tree roots play a big role in the health and structure of a tree but can also cause physical damage to infrastructure. Through various methods including trenching, probing, visual inspection and diagnostic testing, tree root identification can help point the finger at the culprit.
Soil plays a vital role in the health of trees and plants. Often the diagnosis of a sick tree can be attributed to poor soil conditions.
Plant / Tree Identification
Our Arborists have studied for many years in plant identification. Plant identification can help Arborists with the correct identification of diseases and apply the right treatments for sick plants/trees.
Arborists use various methods to examine a tree for decay, including ultrasound, resistograph, and tomograph testing. By using these methods, arborists can better understand the health of a tree and make treatment plans accordingly.
Tree Maintenance Schedules
Maintaining a schedule for your trees is vital to keep them healthy. A schedule should include regular inspections, pruning, and fertilising. Arborists can help you create a schedule tailored to your trees’ needs.
