How Tree Selection and Location Influence Tree Risk Assessment in the Urban Area

Jeremy Rappoport, President and founder of Rappoport Development Consulting Services LLC, has published a new article to the company website titled "How Tree Selection and Location Influence Tree Risk Assessment in the Urban Area.

"Far too often, the tree selection fails to properly match the cultural growth requirements of a tree with the correct location. Somewhat like trying to pound a square peg into a round hole. Since trees are long-lived organisms, the growth characteristics that make a tree unsuitable for a location do not manifest for ten or twenty years.

Homeowners typically make the mistake of not understanding the growth characteristics of trees. Or, they assume the tree wiil not be around twenty or thirty years later. So, a small pine tree planted near the neighbors property line doesn’t become a problem until two decades later when the tree roots encroach into the neighboring residence and the tree crown extend over the property line. These conditions create tree hazards that increase the risk and potential liability to property owners."

If you are a residential or commercial property owner, Home Owner Association, property management company, attorney or insurer, you will find this article helpful.

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
