Inspections & Risk Assessments
Trees must undergo regular inspections and risk assessments to ensure they do not pose a danger. For a thorough and reliable assessment in the Esher area, we strongly recommend using professional tree consultants such as Arbor Cultural Ltd for these inspections.
To determine if trees pose a risk, we undertake tree surveys and decay detection testing to identify any potential issues and to assess the structural integrity of trees. We then produce a detailed tree report which shows our findings and lists recommendations to resolve or prevent potential risks. For example, we may advise on services to improve the health of trees, such as air spading.
As part of your duty of care, you must take steps to comply with any advice regarding tree risks.
Furthermore, Arbor Cultural Ltd provides Arboricultural Impact Assessments which include tree management recommendations to maintain the health and safety of trees on development sites in Esher. If you plan to develop on a site containing trees, this is a key part of the planning process in terms of gaining approval and upholding your duty of care obligations as a landowner.
