Is the Risk Associated with Potential Tree Failure?

The ISA Tree Risk Assessment BMP covers tree risk as it relates to whole and partial tree failure (e.g., trees overturning, uprooting, or losing stems/branches) impacting a target. Arborists conduct visual risk assessments of the tree to identify tree defects such as dead branches, decay, and poor architecture which make a tree more likely to break apart during expected weather/storm conditions for the area.
