Tree Risk Surveys, Assessment & Management
Trees situated close to property or on publicly accessible land present potential risk to both personal and public safety. Landowners are responsible for damage or injury caused by trees on their land and have a duty of care to prevent foreseeable harm occurring to people from any hazardous trees situated on their property. Trees need to be assessed regularly and managed to keep risks of causing harm or injury low.
Treework Environmental Practice offers professional tree risk assessments that enable the landowner or manager to minimise the risk of damage or injury caused by trees in their care. A tree risk survey is an essential component in any system that demonstrates responsible management of tree risk.
Our highly experienced and efficient tree surveyors undertake surveys ranging from detailed individual tree inspections to inventories of large populations of trees (typically 5,000 to 50,000+).
Treework Environmental Practice has developed a database with GIS (MyTrees) for tree population management. This enables us to efficiently survey trees and provide high quality reports and management services.
