Tree Assessments & Tree Protection Plans
Regulatory Compliance for Local Tree Ordinances
Communities commonly adopt tree ordinances to ensure trees are retained during development projects. Such ordinances often require a tree assessment or tree survey that includes an evaluation of the tree’s location, species, diameter, and condition. Many of these tree ordinances also often require project plans to include provisions for tree replacement or tree protection.
DRG’s experienced team of certified arborists can help you interpret local ordinances, develop the right tree assessment approach, and prepare tree protection plans to meet local regulatory requirements.
Invasive Species Management
We can help control and eradicate non-native, invasive pests and plants and restore the ecosystem structure and function that may have been damaged by them.
Our experts can help you find the right solution for the most cost-effective treatment through:
- Surveys & assessments
- Control plans
- Herbicide applications
- Mechanical harvesting
- Monitoring & maintenance
