Construction and Development
Mature trees surrounding a new development create a feel like nothing else can. Their presence adds value to any project, assuring substantially increased occupancy and leasing rates for the owner. It is critical that trees be successfully preserved during the construction process, in order to protect these valuable resources.
Successful preservation involves much more than just putting up fences and staying off root zones. It is a complicated science best left in the hands of extremely qualified experts. Arborguard has partnered with hundreds of developers since 1981, navigating through complex projects where success was critical by implementing innovative tree preservation techniques such as root bridging, air spade excavation, root pruning, and critical root zone analysis.
Our LEED Accredited Arborist (the only in the state of Georgia) welcomes the opportunity to integrate as part of your development team, to create and implement your tree protection plan, including:
- Tree inventory and survey
