How are “Tree Service Requests” prioritized?

The Trumbull Tree Warden utilizes the International Society of Arboriculture (I.S.A.) standards for mitigation and American National Standard Institute’s (ANSI) A300 pruning practices as follows:

  •  Extreme Risk: Trees, whole or in part, that are determined to be hazardous to the Public will be addressed as soon as possible.
  •  High Risk: Trees that may be remediated as soon as practical.
  •  Moderate Risk: Trees that may be mitigated when budget, work schedule or pruning cycle allows.
  •  Low Risk: Trees that will be monitored, if appropriate, and if and when deemed necessary will be mitigated.
