Tree experts can have backgrounds in agriculture, landscape design, arboriculture, horticulture, forestry, plant pathology, ecology, and other related disciplines. Tree failure is a common occurrence that can result in a legal action if an individual was injured by a fallen tree. For tree related lawsuits, it is crucial that you retain a trees expert witness with a background that is relevant to the details of your particular case.
An important area of focus often involving trees is environmental conservation, which implements a set of codes and compliance in relation to the natural environment. Landscape architects and arborists must adhere to these environmental standards when developing residential real estate or commercial buildings. Expert witnesses brought in for habitat development cases must often assess the situation regarding tree safety, as a violation of urban tree management may be grounds for a lawsuit.
In addition to issues with landscaping, expert witnesses may also have experience with tree care and tree safety. Root damage, pesticides, herbicides, and the various surrounding vegetation may all affect the health of trees. Tree nurseries may be set up to provide tree care and conservation methods as a means of maintaining environmental stability. Information on how outside sources affect tree safety may be valuable information in the event of a court case.
