Surveys in relation to construction  

Are you looking to undertake construction near trees? 
Following from any pre application advice and the commencement of your project you will often require a tree survey to detail the trees on site, their condition and any possible impacts there may be as a result of your project.  
This will help guide and inform any design and layout of the project so that a comfortable balance can be found between the built and natural environment. It is also often a requirement to provide a tree survey and report as part of the process to gain approval from your Local Authority. Trim surveys can provide all the advice and reports you require to achieve your vision as well as offer advice for post construction landscape and tree planting projects.

As well as the moral obligations in ensuring trees do not injure persons or damage property landowners also have a duty of care under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 and 1984. This places a duty on the landowner to ensure the reasonable safety of a visitors and, in the 1984 amendment, extends this duty to any non visitors including trespassers. There are also statutes in place to ensure that dangerous trees within falling distance of highways are dealt with appropriately which include the highway authority having the power to deal with a tree and recharge a landowner if a hazardous tree is not made 'safe' 

Decay Detection Using Picus Tomograph and Resistograph 

Following on from a condition survey of your trees it may be necessary to undertake some detailed investigation to ascertain how structurally sound the tree is. This can be undertaken using specialist equipment such as a resistograph (wood resistance measurement) or picus tomograph (sound velocity through wood measurement).
