Arboriculture expert witnesses may be beneficial to several types of court cases involving plants, since the field consists of managing, maintaining, and cultivating numerous forms of plants, including trees and various shrubs. Expert arboriculture consulting may be sought out for lawsuits related to environmental concerns, including environmental conservation, environmental remediation, landscape maintenance, crop production, horticulture, habitat development, agriculture, city planning, and other related issues.
Arborist experts are often experienced with different aspects of forestry, such as tree appraisal, forest policy, forest management, or the economic impact of timber. An arboriculture expert witness may also be asked to provide an expert opinion in the event of litigation related to forest fires, as well as other types of damage, as a means of determining whether the proper forest maintenance methods were in place to meet the requirements of occupational safety and health (OSHA).
Plant pathology may also be relevant in an arboriculture-related court case, as improper arboriculture practices, including those related to tree care, may result in problems with tree safety and other violations of environmental health and preservation methods. Urban tree management is an especially important aspect of arboriculture, since a city landscape may have devastating effects on surrounding trees and shrubs if not properly managed.
