In the FAQ page, the question

Why do you Say that a TRU Inspection is like "Giving Your Tree a Physical Exam"?

was answered as

If no problem is found when you have a physical exam, nothing further needs to be done. If a problem is found, you are normally referred to a specialist (e.g., cardiologist, rheumatologist) to look further into the specific problem detected. The same is true for your tree. Think of a TRU inspection as being its physical exam. If no decay or other problem affecting its structural integrity is found, nothing further needs to be done. If a problem is found, a specialist – a certified arborist – is consulted to assess the implications of the inspection as regards your tree’s structural integrity.
