24 Hour Emergency Service

In the event of an emergency situation related to your trees, ATC?s knowledgeable Arborists are available to help you when you need it most. We provide 24-hour emergency services for hazardous and storm-damaged trees that have failed and resulted in damage to your home property.With our substantial resources, we can mobilize crews and equipment from unaffected regions to address the emergency needs of clients as quickly as possible. During an emergency, ATC takes the appropriate time to assess the situation and recommend the best course of action. Once emergency services are complete, crews will then begin the process of clean up and repair.

Even if your trees do not exhibit obvious damage after a weather event or no immediate emergency exists, it is important to have your property inspected by ATC Arborist Representative who may detect symptoms and conditions that could lead to problems later.

Tree Structure Evaluation

As trees age, they become more susceptible to wood decay and other defects. Many old trees gradually fall apart before they decline and die. The first priority for arborists caring for older trees is evaluating their structural integrity and providing necessary remedial treatments to reduce the risk of branch, stem, and root failures.

ATC arborists are trained to identify symptoms of decay and other defects such as weakly attached branches, cracks, and splits indicating imminent failure, poor architecture, dead and hanging branches, and root related defects. Some defects are obvious by visual inspections, but others require a more detailed assessment. For this, state-of-the-art instruments that evaluate wood density and quality can be used to evaluate the severity of defects. ATC utilizes a sonic instrument capable of developing three-dimensional pictures to quantify the extent and severity of decay and defects in branches and stems.

If evaluation indicates the tree represents a high risk of failure, remedial treatments can be developed to reduce that risk. Treatments could involve pruning to reduce branch weight and wind resistance and installation of structural supports including cables and brace rods that help to limit branch movements during storms. When treatments will not reduce the risk of failure to an acceptable level, tree removal or restricting access to the area near the tree must be considered to prevent personal injury and property damage.
