Arborist Reports And Permitting


The Tree Law (Florida Statute 163.045) DOES NOT apply to common area properties in community associations. This law only applies to single-family detached homes.


Most Jurisdictions will not accept verbal, after-the-fact, incomplete, inaccurate, or misapplied Tree Risk Assessment reports.  This could result in your community association facing additional fines, fees, or penalties like this one:

My Arborist Reports follow International Society of Arboriculture standards and exceed your jurisdictional requirements.

Additionally, I can work with your municipality to streamline permitting you need to remove or prune trees.

Tree Inventory And Scorecards

One common problem most community associations face is understanding how to plan, budget, and manage their trees.  Trees are your largest and longest-living community association asset.

Without understanding your trees, how can you plan, budget for and properly manage your trees?


The most common answer is “We listen to our landscaper or tree company to tell us what to do.” Don't let the fox guard the henhouse?

The Tree CheckUp Scorecard™ solves this problem and more.

You get actionable recommendations and a work priority, so you know where to start!

Planning And Management

If you have an existing tree inventory or a Tree CheckUp Scorecard™, your association may still need behind-the-scenes help, including:

  • Preparing RFP's (requests for proposal).
Arborist Pro Tip

Written scopes of work are often vague, incomplete, and ambiguous.

In addition to your written scope of work, I also prepare Video Scopes of Work.

This makes it easy for vendors to bid on the work and ensure you are getting exactly what you’re paying for.

  • Arborist Reports and permitting assistance.
  • Vetting vendors and ensuring that the work completed is what you paid for.
Arborist Pro Tip

Not all tree care companies are equal; most can’t accurately provide your needed services.

  • Emergency Response for weather-related events to prioritize and direct work.
  • Maintaining and updating your inventory.
Arborist Pro Tip

Your inventory doesn’t do any good sitting on a shelf.

  • Community Education.
