Diseased or a dying tree always poses a risk to the site. Again if the problem is in the roots, get ready for some bigger problems. They may grow over properties, structures, and boundary walls. So, to avoid that, you need a tree risk assessment by default.
Once your local tree service agrees to the assessment, then you may proceed with your further plans. You’re probably wondering “what’s so great about it, I can assess it too. Can’t they just start the work as I ask?”.
Yes, you can find some beetles in your tree, some sick yellow leaves. But, it’s different with the professionals. A TRAQ-certified tree service is good for many reasons. First, let’s find out what exactly are they.
What is Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ)?
If you know driving, you probably check around the road before starting your car. Similarly, TRAQ-certified arborists assess a tree and the situation around it before removing it. You’re probably thinking, “what so great in there, I can do that too”.
Well, you can, but these tree services are certified for that. They need to pass through a test with 100 challenging questions after a 2-day course. For example, they learn the rules to quantify multiple factors like tree weight, species, structure, lean, impact from pests, soil conditions, wind forces, etc.
In fact, they’d clearly explain each of the factors of your tree in the simplest way. So, even when you are looking for an emergency tree service, checking TRAQ is so important. 📌

Reasons why hiring a TRAQ in a tree service is important
You can be confident
A TRAQ-certified arborist can confidently handle a risky situation. On the other hand, if you hire an uncertified one, get ready to hear, “the area is too tight, so anything can happen during the job”.
Instead, when an arborist confidently says that there are very low chances of risk, you are at peace. You can now rest easier until they handle your tee. We won’t say that there won’t be any mistakes. But, we assure you that there’d be least mistakes and sure not as that of a nightmare.
Tree Soldiers’ arborists start with treatment only after assessing your tree. This way, we keep you away from any injury or financial damage.
You’ll have legal protection
As said earlier, a TRAQ-certified arborist will always say that the job isn’t that risky. Hence, the same would be written in their report as well. So, in case there’d be an unintentional accident and legal protection lures in, you’re safe. It’d help you in dealing with the lawyers and claiming your insurance very well.
By the way, you cannot imagine the same with a casual mouth–to-mouth tree risk assessment plan. On trials you may have to say, “they said there’s no risk before the accident”. What about if they ask for evidence?

You get precise tree treatments
Have you come across “so-called” arborists who want to remove a not-so-sick tree? Well, there’s plenty of them out there. Some may suggest tree removal because they will get more money. While others do not really know the exact treatment your tree needs.

They climb less
