WHY DO YOU NEED TREE SURVEYS?
Property owners, schools and other establishments have a duty of care to members of the public, staff, pupils and visitors. This obligation extends to the health, condition and safety of any trees located within the grounds of an establishment, whether a solitary specimen or large woodland. Undertaking a regular survey of your tree stock will help identify the warning signs of tree stress and decay, helping prevent unexpected and potentially dangerous incidences of limb drop. Proactive rather than reactive tree management is safer and makes more financial sense. Regular surveying will generally meet the requirements and obligations of landowners and tenants under the Occupiers and Liability Act 1957 and 1984, as well as the Health and Safety at Work Act, 1974.
PROTECTING THE PUBLIC
Trees are a realistic health and safety concern for land owners, estate owners and managers. There is a common need to juggle the preeminent demand of ensuring public safety with the public's emotional response to felling seemingly healthy trees. Trees are an important amenity in many respects, but they can be very dangerous; it is therefore important to be proactive in the management of trees and woodland where people could be at risk - regular inspections play and important role in this process.
WHAT'S IN THE SURVEY?
We provide a range of arboricultural reports for all types of property owners, managers and other professionals. Depending on one's needs, reports include tree hazard recommendations, climbing surveys and inspections, site monitoring, mortgage surveys, woodland management plans, ecology advice, pre and post development surveys, BS5837:2012 surveys and decay detection.
Our surveyors use the latest software from Pear Technology as well as hand-held GPS devices to produce a range of digital drawings and maps to suit your individual requirements. Standard tree surveys provide information such as the species of the tree, physical measurements of the tree, age of the tree, life expectancy of the tree and management recommendations.
