Why have a Tree Survey?
Trees are essential components of our surroundings. They provide shade, increase attractiveness to the surrounding area, and purify the air.
But how do we know the trees we have on our property are safe, healthy, and won’t cause damage?
That’s where a tree survey comes in. In this blog, we will discuss what this survey is, its benefits, and why you may need one.
What is a Tree Survey?
First, let’s define a tree survey. A tree survey is a comprehensive inspection of trees on a plot of land or in an area.
A qualified professional, such as an arborist at Arborcare, will assess the condition and safety of existing trees while also identifying potential risks.
The report should list all the necessary information concerning the trees surveyed, including species, measurements, condition, risks, and recommendations for any necessary remedial works.
The Importance of a Tree Survey
Why is a tree survey so important? Firstly, a tree survey will provide you with an overview of your trees’ health and safety.
Trees that are diseased, dead, or damaged are a potential hazard. This can pose a significant risk to people and property, such as falling branches or entire trees.
A tree survey can prevent accidents while providing you with instructions on how to deal with identified risks and how to manage your trees.
Identifying Protected Trees
Secondly, the survey can identify rare and protected species of trees, ensuring they are not damaged or removed without proper authorisation.
A professional arborist can identify and assess the condition of endangered or protected trees, ensuring compliance with the current regulations.
Thirdly, if you’re planning construction projects, a tree survey can provide information about your trees’ suitability.
Developing plots of land can change the nutrients, water dynamics, and root systems, which can have significant consequences for existing trees.
A survey can identify any issues before they become expensive and help you design your development plans to minimise any damage to the trees planted.
Tree Management Plans
Finally, a tree survey can help you plan your tree management strategy. The survey report can provide you with detailed information about the trees on your property, their condition, and any necessary maintenance work.
You will have the guidance of a professional arborist to help you prioritise the maintenance work needed, making the most out of your budget.
Regular Tree Surveys
Regular surveys are essential components of proactive tree management. Not only does a survey help with risk assessment and prevention, but it can also identify rare and protected species and help you manage your trees’ health.
With the help of a professional arborist from Arborcare, a tree survey can take care of risks you may not be aware of yet and engage in responsible management of the trees on your property.
