As the implications of bad management or neglect can be serious it is
important to ensure that trees, especially those that grow close to areas of
frequent use, are assessed in relation to failure potential.
Tree owners/managers have a duty of care to ensure their trees are
inspected by a competent person so that defects can be highlighted and
appropriate management, to reduce risk to acceptable levels, can be
undertaken. Whether for single trees,
small groups or large populations, The Urban Forest Consultancy can undertake
systematic hazard evaluations.
