How does the Senior Arborist prioritize work requests?

The Prince George's County Parks and Recreation Department has an active policy to maintain the safety of Parkland from potential damages and/or injury resulting from trees considered to be a "high risk" of failure. The Arboriculture Sections strives to eliminate, in a timely fashion, any tree growing on Parkland that is deemed to be of high risk of failure. Priority is placed on trees deemed to create unsafe situations. The determination of the risk of failure associated with any given tree is determined by our Senior Arborist with respect to their professional experience and the International Society of Arboriculture's Tree Risk Assessment standards.
