An arborist report serves to document the condition of the tree, highlight existent issues, damage, or areas of concern. In addition, the report provides explanatory information, regarding the condition of sites, threats stemming from disease or pest infestation, or mechanical injury. Remedial actions are noted, which may be inclusive of site remediation, fertilization or injections to increase vigor, pest control, air spading to examine and remedy root issues, or pruning and removal, if necessary.
Oftentimes municipalities may require, in part, an arborist report in order to obtain a tree removal permit. Arborist reports themselves are often subject city by-laws.
