Arboricultural Management Strategies & Policies

Tree Risk Management is a management system used by landowners and organizations to identify issues and record the way in which trees will be assessed and managed, in relation to the risk posed by trees, and that a reasonable and practicable approach has been taken which is proportionate to the risk.  Tree risk management will provide an audit trail of actions taken in response to potential risk, what the finding was and how these findings were acted upon so that can help demonstrate that; the landowner has dispensed its duty with reasonable care and taken appropriate action as necessary to protect the general public.

“All landowners have a common duty of care under the Occupier’s Liability Acts 1957 and 1984 and statutory duties under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. These duties are to take all reasonably practicable precautions to ensure the safety of those on their land.”
