Site Surveys, Tree Inspections, Reports and advice on tree safety and good management

  • Peace of mind – we offer an Advisory Service if you need to have the trees surrounding your house and garden surveyed for safety. We are able to assess the safety issues relative to the location of trees and their stage of development and advise on actual or the risk of potential damage due to their position.
  • Individual trees can be inspected to assess their value and location when considering retention or removal due to considerations such as height or age.
  • Commercial properties surveyed and reports delivered for offices, hotels, housing associations, residential homes and parks. We are able to offer a management plan for the grounds that includes the assessment of young, mature trees where there are specific tree management considerations due to the location, such as safety issues or where the trees are seen as an asset and enhance the location.
  • Building Projects Ken Emery is qualified and insured to produce reports to British Standard 5837 “Trees in Relation to Construction” for those involved in building development projects, detailing tree identification, species present, their current state and their future potential height and spread. Our staff are all fully qualified to carry out commercial work such as site clearance and pruning before building projects begin.
  • Road Side Trees – If you own land adjacent to the road side YOU MAY BE LIABLE for trees that shed branches or fall into the road, even though the trees are on the verge.
  • Ken can advise on tree management to allow you and your trees to share space and light. He also successfully liaises with planners to reach satisfactory agreement.
