It is essential to inspect trees regularly to ensure that they remain healthy and strong. The exact frequency of inspections depends on the trees, the property, and the climate. However, it is recommended to have a certified arborist inspect trees every three years. At Joshua Tree, we have two ISA-certified arborists who are also certified tree risk evaluators.
A qualified arborist should assess risks twice a year, in spring and fall, when most trees are in their active phases. During this time, tree roots are best able to absorb the nutrients and water they need to help the tree thrive and protect itself from diseases, pests, and stress. A certified arborist has spent time learning, experimenting, and obtaining certification through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). They know what to look for when inspecting the trees on your property.
Regular reviews by a certified arborist can help ensure that your trees remain healthy and strong.
