Give Trees A Chance. Veteran Tree Care: “In the third session of The Canopy webinar series, consulting arborist Guy Meilleur discusses how decay in older trees can be managed by inspection, treatment and monitoring by following the German ZTV, TRAQ, and the ANSI A300 tree inspection standards. Meilleur also addresses techniques for advancing compartmentalization and documenting strength gain over time as trees adapt to their environment and management adapts to the trees.”
Trees can develop structural defects that can make them weak. Here are some of the important ones along with suggested treatments. Treatments range from nothing, cabling, pruning, removal of the part, or removal of the tree.
- Bark inclusions
- Clustered branches
- Codominant stems
- Hollow trunk
- Trunk bends or leans
- Opposite branches
- Over-extended limb
- Split trunk
- Up-sweeping branches
