The role of the arborist is to represent the interests of the owner.
In that capacity, the arborist should become part of the development team starting with the planning process and then remain involved through construction until the project is completed.
Critical decisions involving trees during development and construction have a significant impact on the outcome and success of a project.
Any property with trees should involve an independent consulting arborist experienced in every aspect of construction as early as possible.
A good arborist can save money while making a profound difference in project scheduling, navigating complex regulations, the aesthetics of the finished project, the environmental impact on the site, and especially with public relations.
