Tree Surveying & risk management
Under the occupiers liability act all land owners have a duty of care to manage and maintain trees upon there property to ensure that they do not pose a threat to any person or property. The act requires that trees should be inspected by a “competent person” and trees and steps taken to minimise the risk or damage caused by trees upon there property.
We can create reports for individual trees or whole tree stocks with assessments to there condition and outlining any steps that could be taken to reduce the potential harm which they pose.
Trees which are found to present a hazard do not always need felling or removing, often the risk can be reduced by taking simple steps like pruning or removing limbs which pose a threat.
Our written reports can be kept as written record that the risks posed by your trees is being managed.
Our reports can also be used for accompanying Tree Preservation Order application forms.
