Spring Tree Evaluation: Unveiling Hibernating Hazards

As winter fades and spring breathes new life into the landscape, it’s time to assess the health of your trees. While the changing seasons bring beauty, they also unveil potential hazards that may have been hibernating beneath the surface. This is where the expertise of your certified arborist at Schneider Tree Care and their team with the Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (TRAQ), becomes invaluable. Here’s why these professionals are essential for a thorough spring evaluation of your trees.

Expertise in Hazard Identification

Schneider Tree Care’s team of Certified Arborists and assessors with TRAQ credentials are trained to recognize potential hazards that can affect trees. They have a keen eye for spotting signs of disease, pest infestations, and structural weaknesses that may not be apparent to the untrained observer. Their expertise ensures a comprehensive evaluation, covering all aspects of tree health and safety. When a deciduous tree experiences environmental forces (winter storms, icing, etc..) and damage is the result, the hazard can be in “hibernation” until the tree starts to bud and ultimately leaf out, increasing the weight and wind sail effects on the new defect which ultimately leads to a failure.

Tailored Recommendations

Certified arborists can provide tailored recommendations based on their assessment. Whether it’s pruning to remove weak branches, implementing pest management strategies, or improving soil health, they can suggest the most effective course of action to address any issues identified during the evaluation.

Preventative Maintenance

By conducting a spring evaluation, certified arborists can help prevent potential hazards from escalating. Early detection of diseases, pests, or structural issues allows for prompt intervention, minimizing the risk of damage to the tree or surrounding property.

Long-Term Tree Health

Certified arborists focus not just on addressing immediate concerns but also on promoting the long-term health and vitality of your trees. Their recommendations are aimed at improving overall tree health, ensuring that your trees thrive for years to come.

Accredited Companies for Peace of Mind

When hiring a company for tree evaluation and maintenance, look for one that employs TRAQ-certified arborists. Accredited companies adhere to industry standards and best practices, giving you peace of mind that your trees are in capable hands.


Spring is a critical time to evaluate your trees for potential hazards that may have developed during winter. Certified Arborists and assessors with the TRAQ credential are essential for conducting thorough evaluations and providing expert recommendations. By partnering with a certified arborist and an accredited company, you can ensure the health and safety of your trees, enhancing the beauty and value of your landscape.
