The Tree Company offers its clients a comprehensive consultancy service covering all aspects of arboriculture:
Tree inspections can be undertaken to assess tree safety and identify potential hazards and diseases thereby enabling clients to fulfil their duty of care.
Pre-mortgage and buildings insurance reports are provided to assist homebuyers, insurers, lenders and other bodies to effectively and quickly assess the potential for vegetation to influence building foundations.
Reports can be either preliminary in nature or supplementary to and in tandem with additional reports prepared by Building Surveyors and Structural Engineers.
Site Surveys for Planning Purposes
We offer pre-planning site assessment and tree surveys to advise developers and building contractors in effective methods of tree protection on development sites and thereby assisting the processing of planning applications.
On-site advice and reports provide clients with the information required to assess desirability of trees for retention, provide adequate tree protection during development and advise on post-development regeneration and replacement planting.
All advice is provided in accordance with BS 5837:2005, Trees in Relation to Construction.
Trees can arouse strong emotions between potentially opposing parties. In some cases people can be fiercely protective of trees, both their own and those owned by others. This is perhaps because of their size, historical value, or because of sentimental attachments. But in other cases there may be equally heartfelt animosity towards trees and a determination to see them removed or substantially reduced in size.
Where disputes arise, The Tree Company can offer a mediation and legal advice service.
