Action Plans in San Diego

Action Plans

An action plan is an arborist report based on maintenance needs and other improvements. They contain detailed work scopes, web-based maps, and example photos. Action plans are used to generate and execute work orders. Our clients include common interest developments, property managers, real estate professionals, investment trusts, and all other tree owners.

Routine maintenance assessments are a form of professional tree care. While pruning or removal are necessary at times, having an action plan to direct work minimizes unnecessary expenses and provides a high level of asset protection.

Budgets and work scopes determined by contractors who provide the recommended services can be interpreted as a conflict of interest. Their consulting is more like an estimate because they have an interest in performing the work.

A primary function of an arborist employed in the sales and operations of a tree care company is to ensure work is performed properly, safely, and as specified. They have a professional obligation to their crews and clients.

We have no financial or personal interest in our recommendations. We exclusively offer consulting services. Our job is to give an objective opinion based on current science, best management practices, and industry experience.

An action plan helps tree owners make educated decisions when caring for their urban forest. It includes one set of work recommendations, developed with advanced knowledge and decades of experience, that can be used to generate comparable job estimates.

Our inventories and maps are web-based, interactive management tools that can be accessed by any internet-connected device. Workers can identify subject trees in the field before work begins; owners and professionals can verify work was completed using a phone, tablet, or home computer.

Tree Life Consulting develops action plans based on maintenance needs, not business goals, to direct work efficiently and effectively. We help protect and enhance tree populations by avoiding unnecessary costs or potentially harmful treatments, thereby increasing their safe and useful life in the landscape.
