Manchester Tree Surveys & Reports – Your Trusted Surveyor / Consultant
Tree surveys can often be needed for different reasons, some of which include:
- assessment of tree safety and risk for institutions such as schools, shopping centres or even private gardens
- if you are going through a building works applications for either a construction site or small house extension
Elmhouse tree services offers a range of written tree reports that are backed up by years of experience in the arboricultural industry giving you the peace of mind to live with your trees in harmony. We offer individual tree reports based on your needs, Safety and Risk Management surveys to help you meet your duty of care, and Pre-Planning Tree Condition Surveys that are in line with BS:5837:2012.
Safety & Risk Management Surveys
If you are land owner or a land manager (school grounds, business premises, shopping centre car parks, private gardens etc) then you have a duty of care to anyone who visits the land (this includes trespassers). Trees on such land have the potential to cause harm or damage to people or property and could also pose a risk to adjacent land, roads, public footpaths etc. Steps should be taken by the owner/manager to identify of any trees that may cause potential damage to property or that could cause injury and undertake any work that is required to minimize/eliminate the risk of this happening. Our survey will help you towards fulfilling your duty of care as required by English law with regards to your trees.
Pre Planning Tree Condition Surveys
When assessing a planning application for building works, be it a small house extension or a lager proposed construction site, the Local Planning Authority is required to assess the possible impacts on any trees on and around the site. This assessment is undertaken with help of a pre-planning tree condition survey. This consist of a map with accurately and uniquely marked trees coupled with a survey schedule that relates to the map. The trees are categorised to give a clear picture of work that may or may not be needed. The details required in this survey are dictated by BS 5837:2012.
Individual Tree Reports
Is my tree safe now that it has shed a limb? Why are the leaves smaller than in previous years? What is the fungus on the stem, roots or branches? Although no tree can be identified as entirely safe as a large storm can uproot the heathiest of trees, through visual inspection, defects or problems will be visible to a trained surveyor allowing you to identify the hazards associated with that defect and what is the best way to deal with it.
