 Surveys For The Construction Industry - BS5837 2012
When developing sites for construction it is necessary to comply with local authorities to provide a BS5837 survey. One of our surveying team either Jason Bellenger or Paul Mason will be happy to meet any involved contractors on site to discuss and give recommendations and advice whilst carrying out the survey. For each tree within the vicinity of the development the survey will  include - Crown spread, BS5837 retention category, tree condition, amenity value, species, age, life expectancy, defects and most importantly Root Protection Area (RPA). Along side a detailed drawing of the site marking all trees and RPAs a written report on findings and recommendations will be provided. Contact one of our team for more information or to see an example. 
Tree Safety Inspection
As a tree owner you are responsible for maintenance and management of your trees. Under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 and 1984 you have a duty to take such care as is reasonable to ensure that visitors to your land shall be safe from harm. This duty also includes trespassers, but only so far as risks which you are aware. In common law this means that negligence against the tree owner could be proved in a court of law for not meeting a standard of care. We can provide you with a detailed Tree Safety Inspection along with a detailed map on request outlining hazards and making categorized recommendations for work. The inspector may feel that a particular tree may require an aerial inspection, for this we would climb the tree using ropes and a harness. The final report can be used in a court of law as evidence.
