The number of urban development projects are increasing and more natural environments and open spaces are being developed into residential and commercial sites. As a result, areas dominated by green canopies are getting smaller, and this is having a profound effect on our health and environment.
We never notice it, but every day, we enjoy immeasurable benefits from the trees growing around us.
Did you know that a mature tree absorbs hundreds of gallons of water in a day and about 95% of the absorbed water may be transferred into the atmosphere. This enables us to enjoy cool breeze even under the hot sun. Also, carbon dioxide, a by-product of machines and many capital-intensive industries, is absorbed by trees as raw material for photosynthesis, which in turn releases oxygen into the atmosphere.
In the erection of commercial and residential buildings for economic growth, healthy trees should not be compromised. Some of the existing trees are healthy and suitable for preservation while others may have structural instabilities, making them likely to become hazardous in the future. Yet other trees may be impossible to preserve due to construction constraints, such as those growing near work zones. Preserving them may be a waste of time and effort. So then, how should we evaluate the trees? How do we determine tree preservation?
Tree preservation measures ought to be consulted at the PRE-construction stage and implemented DURING and POST the construction period. These are just some of the questions we have to keep in mind:

Arborists, also known as arboriculturists, are considered tree doctors. These people are trained in the study of trees and have the necessary knowledge and expertise for the proper care and maintenance of trees.
Arborists are often in charge of assessing tree conditions, providing a diagnosis for diseases, offering professional advice to ensure optimal tree health.
Additionally, arborists also carry out services such as tree pruning, fertilising the trees, treating diseases, controlling pests, and more.
You should hire an arborist because a well-maintained tree can significantly enhance the value of your property.
On the contrary, poorly maintained trees can potentially damage your landscape, causing the investment you placed into designing and installing the landscape to go down the drain.
The cost of our arboriculture consultancy services differ depending on the type of services required. Generally, a tree assessment can range from $10 to $300 per tree.
Yes, we do offer horticulture consultancy services. Please contact us for more information.
During the consultation session, our in-house arborist will check the trees either visually and/or with equipment to determine the tree’s health and structural integrity.
