Woolpert is a leading US architecture, engineering and geospatial firm and has delivered innovative technical services to clients in all 50 states and around the world for over a century. The City of Marietta, Ohio retained Woolpert to lead them in the redesign of the historic riverfront Muskingum Park, which is home to the iconic Start Westward Monument and the River Trail. Woolpert then turned to Urban Canopy Works, LLC (UCW) to provide a variety of arboricultural consulting services to support the conceptual design phase for planned improvements in the park and for the River Trail.
UCW’s Certified Arborists holding the ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualification provided these services:
On-site meeting with project team members and the head of City’s Tree Commission to identify any trees for preservation or potential removal, and to discuss and understand city regulations or guidelines for tree protection and local tree protection goals
Mature tree condition and risk assessment (using Level 1 Tree Risk Assessment protocols) of the trees in the construction limits to provide information needed to indicate trees recommended for removal or special preservation efforts.
Inspection report delivered to present the findings of the on-site meeting and tree inspection, including a list of trees recommended for removal, general information on tree protection zones, construction methods that could be used for tree preservation, and the recommended timing of those activities.
Conceptual plan review was provided related to tree retention and protection.
Project team support as provided throughout the conceptual plan development stage.
