Trees are an essential part of life. In addition to the obvious aesthetic appeal, they also provide us with shade, regulate temperatures, improve air quality, reduce storm water runoff, provide shelter and food to wildlife and people, and provide many other benefits. Trees are not only beautiful, but add financial value to the property as well. A tree appraisal
establishes the monetary value of your trees — an important fact to know since some healthy mature specimen trees could be worth as much as tens of thousands of dollars.
Sometimes a tree-related matter becomes the subject of an insurance claim or lawsuit. This may happen if a tree causes property damage, bodily injury, or fatality, or when the value of a tree or trees that was damaged by a storm or a person is the subject of an insurance claim or a legal action.

Diagnosing tree problems in the landscape is often a difficult task since there can be many different causes for a given symptom. Soil nutrition and texture, weather conditions, lighting and many other environmental and cultural conditions influence a plant’s overall health.Compounding this problem is that trees often take years to show symptoms of a previous injury. For example, if a tree starts showing branch die back it could be from a canker disease this year or it could be the result of root injury from construction damage such as a new patio or driveway put in up to five years ago. The symptoms from these abiotic (nonpathogenic) factors can sometimes be confused with disease or insect damage.When diagnosing plant diseases it is important to look at the surroundings the plant is growing in and to ask the right questions of clients or people more familiar with the growth of the plant. It is somewhat like being a detective.Proverbs Tree experts will help you get to the bottom of any insect and disease issues plaguing your landscape.
