As a property owner, it is your responsibility to ensure that your trees do not pose a risk to people and property. If you or a neighbor is concerned about the health and safety of a tree, it is recommended that you commission a certified arborist to carry out a tree risk assessment to determine the potential risks and to identify what work can be carried out to help mitigate the risks.

There are several factors that can lead to trees posing a potential hazard to you, the public and property, such as

  • Tree disease, tree fungus, fungal decay or insect issues
  • Weakened root systems, due to compaction, construction, poor tree health or drought
  • Human influences such as, removal of bark,  poor quality tree work e.g bad pruning cuts or tree topping which can lead to weaknesses in the tree’s structure
  • Storm, lightning and or snow damage
  • Natural growth weaknesses, overextending limbs or poor unions with included bark

These are some examples of different potential tree hazards which can be identified in a tree inspection and mitigated against through employing tree experts  to carry out a tree risk assessment.

Just because a tree may pose a risk or hazard it does not necessarily mean that the whole tree would need to be removed. depending on the situation there are several options to save the tree ,through carrying out preventative maintenance such as pruning of hazardous limbs, weight reduction pruning, cable and bracing. A quality tree risk assessment will be able to identify your options and costs.
