Tree Issue? Tree condition and recommendation surveys for insurance purposes are common. If you need advice on what can be done, please contact me. It is a landowner’s responsibility under “The Occupiers Liability Act 1957/1984 to take reasonable and practical steps to ensure that premises (including woodland) are reasonably safe for visitors and residents.

This affects landowners and managers of trees and woodland areas who need to make regular safety inspections of their trees adjacent to buildings, roads, car parks, footpaths, picnic areas, public areas etc. This is to ensure that you have taken reasonable and practical steps to monitor the safety of your trees to prevent damage or injury to people or property.

Whatever your requirements we have the experience to carry out the right tree assessment for you – a standard approach or bespoke to your particular circumstances we will deliver what you need. The frequency and detail of a tree survey can vary from a less detailed “walk through survey” to a highly detailed “individual tree survey”.
