What is an Arboriculture Report?
Local Authorities try to protect good quality trees for the benefit of our wildlife and vegetation. The criteria for protection varies from area to area but covers features such as height, age, health and type of tree. An Arboriculture Report is a tree survey that examines this.
Who carries out an Arboriculture Report?
Structural Engineers, Surveyors and Tree Consultants are trained and qualified to carry out this type of work. Be sure to check their qualifications and make sure they have the necessary knowledge to undertake a professional survey – there are potentially some heavy fines to pay if a protected tree is removed without permission from the Local Authority.
When do I need an Arboriculture Report?
For Planning: Tree surveys are needed for most new and sometimes existing property development sites. The trees on neighbouring land will also be included in the survey because often those in close proximity will have a route system that reaches onto the development site. The report can than make recommendations such as a root protection area for a given tree on which there would be no development allowed so the tree can grow unhindered. The report can be used to support a planning application. Sometimes it will include a Tree Protection Plan ( BS5837).
For a mortgage: When applying for a mortgage, a surveyor will visit the property on behalf of the mortgage company. Sometimes the surveyor will ask for a tree survey because they have noticed trees are close to the building being surveyed. This is because some trees are a real hazard to the building’s foundations. This information could prove essential when applying for insurance.
For your garden / for your land: It is wise to check with your Local Authority before you cut down or drastically prune trees in your garden or land you own. There could be serious consequences if you carry out work on tree that either is or should be protected. If there are potential hazards on the site that could damage a tree, such as large moving machinery, it may be necessary to get at Tree Hazard Survey done.
For trees close to buildings: If you have concerns that a tree could do damage to a building in the future.
For tree damage to a building: You may need a structural engineer as well as a tree survey.
For diseased trees: trees that are diseased or in danger of becoming diseased can usually be removed but you must check with your Local Authority first and have the appropriate documentation to prove it is necessary.
