Hazardous Tree Evaluation
Hazardous trees have structural defects that may cause the tree or a portion of the tree to fall on someone or somthing of value. Trees that meet this description are found in many locations--anywhere there is a target to hit. Structural defects can be simple and obvious, or they can be complex and difficult to identify. MFC foresters can determine the severity of the hazard potential and to propose ways to minimize the risk.

Most tree failures are avoidable. Thus, a pro-active approach to identifying hazardous trees is necessary to provide a safe environment for people and property.

MFC foresters can determine your care needs and customize a program that will enhance the safety and apperance of the trees on your property.

Prescribed Silvicultural Practices
Silviculture describes the practice of controlling the creeation and maintenance of forest. If tree planting is needed, in use, soil, climate and hydrology are factors that MFC considers in derermining the best species and location to plant. Also, MFC uses modern forestry practices on established woodlots to determine timber productivity and to prescribe appropriate management options, such as TSI (Timber Stand Improvement), a thinning or a commercial harvest. All practices are designed to improve the health and productivity of the woodlot.
