Tree reports explained
A tree report, or tree survey, involves assessing and analysing a tree.
When we carry out tree reports as tree surgeons, we look for signs of weakness, decay or disease. Some symptoms such as discolouration or thinning of foliage, out of season leaf shedding, markings on leaves or bark, insect eggs, moulds, fungal growth, cankers, wilting and stem dieback will be easy to spot.
Other symptoms however may not be so obvious. Sometimes there will be issues happening beneath the surface that could turn into problems in the future, which is why we use a PiCUS Sonic Tomograph to investigate deeper. This equipment uses sound waves to identify signs of decay inside the trunk of the tree and is totally non-invasive.
The tomogram reveals the thickness of the residual wall of the tree. Acoustic tomograms pick up any risk of breakage near branch wounds and above ground cavities.
Once the condition of the tree has been revealed, a recommendation of work is prepared. This could involve pruning, disease or pest control or sometimes even tree removal.
When are tree reports required?
Anyone with trees growing on their land has a duty of care to ensure they are safe. This means they need regular checking. If this does not take place, or if advised works are not carried out, a tree may go on to fall or shed heavy branches.
If this happens and it leads to personal injury or property damage, liability for compensation and damages could arise, and an insurance policy may not pay out because recommendations have not been followed.
Tree reports provide reassurance and documented evidence that a tree is safe and healthy.
What are the different tree reports?
Tree Condition Safety Survey & Inspection
A general tree safety survey covering all the trees in a single area. This report lists the number of trees, their species, height and canopy spread and closeness to property or the likes of public highways. If the area is particularly extensive, for example a park, events ground, estate gardens or commercial premises then the survey will usually be zoned on a risk level basis from low to high. So if a particular section is close to overhead power lines or bordering a public footpath, then it will be listed as high risk.
Once the general survey is completed, if any trees are deemed problematic, another more detailed inspection will be undertaken using the methods outlined above.
Tree condition safety surveys are often requested by property and / or liability insurance providers.
Arboricultural Mortgage Report
Mortgage lenders sometimes ask for a tree report as proof there is no risk of subsidence being caused by tree roots. Such risks can lead to a fall in value of the property, which lenders will not view in a positive light.
Tree surgeons assess the tree to reveal any problems. Sometimes tree removal may be recommended if it is thought that the tree will cause issues for the property in the future.
Planning Application and Development Surveys
Tree reports needed for planning applications involve a number of elements.
Firstly, a British Standards BS5837 survey is required. This relates to official construction recommendations and aims to achieve the best possible balance between valuable existing trees and new property development. This is the main documentation used by local planning authorities to assess planning applications.
Secondly, an arboricultural method statement is followed by a tree protection or constraints plan. These demonstrate how trees are protected throughout the development. This is a report that must be incredibly accurate and robust enough to stand up to cross-examination should any appeal or public inquiry ensue.
