normal risk

A term commonly used by insurers to describe a risk in the normal range. An additional risk factor, such as a large tree close to a building on shrinkable soil, might elevate the risk beyond the normal range and therefore justify a higher premium. See tree risk.

This definition is abridged from A – Z of tree terms: A companion to British arboriculture.
