first t hing is to find an arborist in your area. I suggest a member or Registered Consulting Arborist in the American Society of Consulting Arborists. The American Society of Consulting Arborists can recommend highly qualified arborists and consultants in your area. Their web site and database is at

or contact the main office at

Fire damage is very hard to assess. I am appraising an acre of trees damaged by fire, using a mallet and a knife to determine bark damage. Some trees are definitely going to live, some will die. Each judgment involves many complex factors. Even with all the information in the trade available, I'm reduced to guesswork of the viability of several trees.

If you supply more details about your trees, we may have more to offer.
