4GT puts safety first on the jobsite!
A 4GT arborist will meet with the property owner or representative on-site to provide in-depth information concerning proper tree or shrub care and maintenance.
This report, typically provided to homeowners, builders, developers, and regulatory agencies for use with environmental impact reports and/or construction and building permits, provides a specific written evaluation for a given tree or group of trees. The report identifies trees by genius and species. It also includes technical information as well as recommendations to enhance the health and value of the tree or trees.
When a plant or tree loss has occurred, due to events such as fire, storms,
vandalism, or vehicle damage, an arborist will assess the extent of damaged or
destroyed vegetation and compile an appraisal with a dollar valuation.
