Even if you are not a tree expert you can tell that the the way the tree service left the limbs do not look neat and clean. The reality is that over time there will decay.  Some of the picture show some trees trimmed even farther back in time and the decay is alread starting on them.

GREYSTAR and Risk Management Disaster Service can work to keep the properties safe. Here is some helpful training information.

Adding Value for the resident families makes your lease rates a justifiable value in the residents mind. There are some basic things you should know about trees and landscape so that Greystar properties receive great service when a tree services and landscaper is hired. As a local GREYSTAR team member you likely see the properties the most. Therefor you have the greatest ability to make sure GREYSTAR vendors do a good job. If you were inspecting any tree work we did for you these are the thing we would need to do right. Here are some examples of what some other tree company did wrong. For example we have found improper trimming of trees on some properties that has resulted in killing entire branches or making them weak and hazardous.  (Link to bad trimming.) If you as the property manager spent a few minutes looking at these links showing the right way to do it, you would be able to tell the vendor come back and fix it. We have seen potential hazards that are not reported by the tree services. This means that you are a second pair of eyes. We don’t expect you to be an expert just adequately informed. If you know some basics you can help GREYSTAR show its value and keep its clients, that keeps GREYSTAR at the TOP and that keeps us working.  Please review the information below.
