What is a tree survey?
A tree survey involves a qualified professional obtaining useful and important information about a tree or collection of trees to help them make an informed decision on how to manage them.
Tree surveys occur on both public and private property and help people know what treatment each tree needs. A tree survey will also isolate potential hazards and minimize the risk of trees being removed when they don’t need to be or causing damage to a tree through incorrect guidance.
Typically, a tree survey will obtain information such as tree measurements, tree types, age and life expectancy, tree health and then recommendations for that tree.
Do I need a tree survey?
In certain circumstances, you may be legally obliged to have a tree survey, especially if there are protected trees on your property or the property you wish to purchase.
Another common reason why people need or want a tree survey is if they’re purchasing land or property and they want to make changes which may impact the trees growing there.
Some people also opt for tree surveys as part of a wider risk management assessment because diseased trees can be hazardous to property and people around them.
