Utility/Tree Inspections Not Associated with New Construction
Utility inspections ensure that Seattle's trees are protected both above ground (tree's canopy) and below ground (root zones) when the installation of utility lines runs in close proximity to right-of-way trees. Inspection of proposed routes by a Certified Arborist are conducted and all trees that may be affected are inventoried. Permits for utilities are issued, with a copy of the Arborist's office evaluation. An inspector will be on site when trenching and/or overhead line clearance is required within a tree's dripline.
