Health & Safety Tree Survey Inspections

Land and tree owners have a legal ‘duty of care’ to ensure reasonable steps are taken to manage the risks associated with their tree ownership. Regular health and safety tree surveys are a recognised way to manage the risks.

We undertake onsite tree safety surveys with follow up formal reports. The report records information on tree species, age, condition and tree location plan and give recommendations of any remedial work that is required.
