What happens if a Housing Association does not get its trees surveyed?

The webinar will be hosted live.

The consequences of not managing or improperly maintaining your trees population can be severe.

Landowners and Managers who do not proactively manage their tree population are not meeting their duty of care, in law, for public safety. The following problems can result from not proactively managing trees:


Trees that are not surveyed and maintained properly can become hazardous, as they may have weak branches or decay and be at risk of collapse. This can result in damage, injury or even death.

Excessive costs

Unnecessary tree surgery can cost tens of thousands of pounds and is bad for the environment.

Legal issues

If someone is injured or their property is damaged because of a housing association's failure to maintain trees, the association could be held liable and may face legal action.

Nuisance complaints

Trees that are not surveyed and maintained, add time to your officers’ time dealing with complaints such as trees causing shade problems, trip hazards, leaf litter and sap residues to properties and possessions.

To avoid these types of complex, stressful and costly issues, it is important for housing associations to ensure that their trees are inspected regularly and maintained proactively.

Let us carry the weight for you.

We have 40 years of experience of successfully supporting landowners and managers.

Working for a Housing Association means that your typical day is often a busy one, filled with changing priorities often leading to a stressful environment, where you could, quite frankly, do without trees on top of everything else!

Being solely tasked to sort out your organization’s trees, you probably don’t have the time or resources to research and understand the terminology and different approaches to tree inspections. This can hold you back from gaining the knowledge and expertise that you need to have in place, to start proactively managing your trees.

That is why we have put exactly the information that you need to know, in a short webinar and broken it down in simple language that you can understand quickly!
