Avoid Trouble With a Tree Risk Assessment

Trees are like part of the furniture of the outdoor world. They stand there, doing their bit for the environment by contributing to air quality, they are often beautiful and can bring a sense of nature to the most soulless of manmade areas. But trees are living things that grow and change and are not indestructible, so sometimes they come under scrutiny on health and safety grounds. In such cases, specialist arborist consultants such as Assurance Trees are called upon to carry out tree risk assessments. This can be for a number of reasons relating to how a tree affects, or could potentially affect the things and people around it.

What can a Tree Risk Assessment tell us?

Our level 5 arborists can look at overall health, weaknesses and defects, and conditions in the surrounding area that could contribute to trouble. If there is any question at all about the safety of people in the area, or potential damage to property, vehicles and so on, we can give an expert arboricultural impact assessment report that can prevent issues from happening. We have certifications in safety management and quality management, so it’s fair to say we’ve got the whole subject covered. Our Senior Consulting Arborist has been called as an expert witness in court proceedings, so if the legal profession has faith in us, that must mean something. Read More

Is Tree Pruning Assessment Really Necessary?

Tree pruning risk assessment looks at one of the most important tree care activities: altering the shape and balance of the tree. Tree Pruning is generally done for the best of reasons – maintaining its health – but it constitutes surgery and must be undertaken by experts with a clear understanding of the consequences of any operation – that is to say benefits versus potentially harmful effects.
