A Healthy Urban Forest is a
Vital Part of Your Community
Urban trees provide numerous social, economic, and environmental benefits to a community. In an urban environment, trees deal with an incredible amount of stress which can compromise their health and overall value. Having a strong forest health program helps detect changes in a community’s urban canopy and allows for proactive management.
BioForest’s team of qualified experts, including ISA certified arborists, ISA Qualified Tree Risk Assessors, Registered Professional Foresters, ecologists, botanists, and biologists, collect and analyze field data and provide recommendations to support the growth and sustainability of the urban forest.
BioForest’s comprehensive urban forest health services consist of:
Early detection of invasive species, insect and disease pests is of the utmost importance when conserving tree canopy. BioForest uses the most current survey methodologies to gather data for early detection, population monitoring, forecasting future population levels and population delineation. Utilizing pest detection surveys for early detection are essential for making rapid management decisions for treatments and removals that can be tailored to suit specific/custom needs.
The urban forest health team has worked with numerous municipal clients in southern Ontario, giving them extensive experience in surveying for major insect pests including but not limited to; emerald ash borer, gypsy moth, and Asian longhorned beetle.
A tree inventory provides valuable data on tree species and distribution. Having an up-to-date tree inventory allows forest managers to identify areas of high risk and prioritize management activities. BioForest offers tree inventory services that generate useful data to help forest managers efficiently manage resources in an organized and coordinated manner. A current tree inventory is a crucial part of managing the urban forest and is most effective when used as a dynamic planning tool, rather than a stand-alone product, and may be combined with other services, such as pest detection surveys, for enhanced versatility and value.
