Tree Inspection & Surveys

We can provide the following Tree Inspections and Surveys.


Tree Risk Assessment


By law, landowners have a duty to 'take reasonable care' of trees. The tree owner should regularly inspect all trees within their ownership and be aware of whether a tree is likely to cause damage to persons or property.


We can compile a detailed individual inspection and provide recommendations for tree management. Regular inspection of your tree assets will ensure their long-term health and vitality and allow us to detect potential hazards, risks, pests or disease before becoming an all too often dangerous and costly experience.

Tree Hazard Evaluation

Our method of “Tree Hazard Evaluation” offers a proactive approach to tree maintenance.


A level of acceptable risk is ascertained with the client before the assessment is carried out and recommendations for remedial work are outlined in a tree survey schedule.


As currently practiced, tree evaluation involves examining a tree for structural defects, associating those defects with a known pattern of failure and rating the degree of risk.


Tree hazard assessment involves three components:

  • a tree with the potential to fail,

  • an environment that may contribute to that failure, and

  • a person or object that would be injured or damaged (i.e. the target).



By definition; “a hazard situation requires the presence of both a defective tree and a target. Unless a target is present, a tree cannot be hazardous. As a result assessing hazard is not limited to evaluating failure potential. Hazard evaluation must consider the potential presence of a target”.
