Veteran Tree Surveys

In the UK we have many old and veteran trees, and as experienced Arborists, we understand the value of these ancient trees and the need to preserve them when we can. If you have a veteran tree in your garden or on your land and you would like a tree survey to establish the condition of the tree, we can help you.

We provide veteran tree surveys to private and commercial clients in Nottingham and across the UK.

If you have bought or inherited property or some land, you may find a veteran tree that needs some care and attention. A tree survey to establish the condition is highly recommended.

Tree Condition Survey

The Occupiers Liability Act 1957 and 1984 states that the owner of a tree has a duty to ensure the tree cannot cause damage to people or infrastructure. So, it is your responsibility to ensure that the tree is safe.

On commercial land, there are additional responsibilities under the Health & Safety at Work Act.

The tree survey that we conduct will give detailed information about the condition of the tree, any structural signs of decline, a risk assessment and a recommendation of any remedial work that is required.

If remedial action is required, we can be present when this is being undertaken to ensure that the work is carried out effectively and in accordance with our recommendations.

Above Crown Tree Inspections

If the condition at the top of the veteran tree is required, we can use Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (drones) to take aerial photographs or a video. Our AGX710 Sensor for DJI Matrice 200 Series Drones can also capture data which indicates the health of the crown.

This is a service favoured by organisations that are responsible for veteran trees. A tree inspection using a drone reduces the risk of falls as a person does not need to climb onto damage weakened branches. It is also more cost-effective and less damaging than the use of a Mobile Elevated Work Platform which is limited in the access they can provide and can cause compaction of root systems on soft ground.

We are based in Nottingham so can easily travel to any part of the UK if needed. For a veteran tree, survey contact us by calling 0333 2104420 or email
