Tree Consultancy - Our Services

Trees and Development

Our tree management experts are here to help you recognise all the relevant factors to your designs. We aim to help you by outlining all the things you should be aware of when designing and reconstructing. Our team wants to help you avoid costly delays or disruptions throughout your development and construction process. By using our arboricultural survey and tree consultancy services, we can determine the impact of your trees on your landscape areas.

Mortgage Reports

Some insurers or mortgage lenders will require an arboricultural survey to be carried out before granting a loan or insurance policy, particularly if a surveyor flags an issue with one or more of the trees at the property or there is a history of tree-related damage in the area. Tree surveys can highlight issues that might otherwise have gone unnoticed, which might subsequently affect a lender or insurer’s decision about how to proceed. We provide a comprehensive mortgage tree report to ensure that the lender or insurer is able to make a fully informed decision.

Decay Detection

Our Picus 3 Tomograph tool enables us to measure the sound waves across the stem in order to detect decay and cavities. The speed of the sound waves varies with the elasticity and the density of the wood itself, with most damage and disease causing fractures, cavities or decay.

Tree Hazard Assessment

A key aspect of tree consultancy and management is assessing potential risks and hazards relating to trees. Tree hazard assessments and risk assessments are proactive methods of estimating the likelihood of a tree causing harm or injury as a result of decay or other significant issues. Using GPS equipment, an arboricultural consultant will plot the trees on your property and provide detailed tree survey schedules and tree management plans to help avoid serious damage or harm.

Woodland Management

A woodland management plan gives land managers and woodland owners a structured way to organise the sustainable management of woods to a common industry standard. Whether you are seeking access to grants or applying for felling and thinning licences we can guide you through the process.
