The Importance of Having a Certified Arborist Conduct a Level 2 Inspection to Assess Tree Health for Ropes Courses or Ziplines Built in TreesMay 06, 2020
Rope courses and ziplines are a great way to have fun and get exercise, but they can also be dangerous if the trees they are built in are not healthy. That's why it's important to have a certified arborist conduct a level 2 inspection to assess the tree health before installing a ropes course or zipline.
A level 2 inspection is a more thorough inspection than a level 1 inspection. A level 2 inspection will include:
- A visual inspection of the tree's overall health and condition.
- An inspection of the tree's roots, trunk, and branches.
- An inspection of the tree's surrounding area for potential hazards.
- An inspection of where elements and componenets of the challenge course or ropes course connect with the tree
If the certified arborist finds any problems with the tree, they will recommend repairs or removal. It is important to follow the arborist's recommendations to ensure the safety of your ropes course or zipline.
