Tree Survey

What are tree surveys?

Tree Surveys are detailed maps with a focus on the trees within a given property. Trees on a property are inventoried and recorded with details such as location, species, diameter, health and condition. Surveys are frequently required for development plans by a city or county arborist. Surveys may or may not include detailed geographic information. Surveys may also be used in tree management plans on larger residential or commercial sites to track property assets.

   

Basic Site Survey

The basic site survey uses geographic data provided by a civil engineer. The trees that have been located are then inspected for proper size, species, health and condition. Special emphasis is placed on a tree’s potential risk to the developed property. Pricing begins at $240 and covers the first two hours of field work and resulting reporting. Pricing for larger sites can be performed at an agreed hourly rate.

   

Site Survey

A site survey uses geographic data provided by a civil engineer like the basic survey.  However, the standard survey includes looking for additional “specimen trees,” and physically tagging all surveyed trees with unique numbers   The trees that have been located are then inspected for proper size, species, health and condition.  Special emphasis is placed on a tree’s potential risk to the developed property.  Pricing begins at $280 and covers the first two hours of field work and resulting reporting.  Pricing for larger sites can be performed at an agreed hourly rate.

   

Advanced Tree Survey

The advanced tree survey includes; finding all relevant trees, gathering GIS data on each tree, tagging each tree with a unique number, inventorying each tree to include species, DBH, health, condition, and canopy coverage. The output format of the report is determined before a project is started. The report includes a presentation and reports as needed or required by local ordinance. Pricing is dependent on required GIS accuracy (from three meter down to sub meter.) Field work is based on a team of two or more beginning at $185 an hour. Reports and pubic presentations start at $280.
