What is a tree report?

A tree report, also known as a tree survey, involves assessing and analysing a tree. The objective is to relay any care needed by the tree and any management needed for trees in any given space.

As tree surgeons conducting tree reports, we look for signs of weakness, decay or disease. Some symptoms are clear to the naked eye, 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.

Other symptoms however are not so obvious, which is why we have a need to investigate further. To do this we use a piece of equipment known as a PiCUS Sonic Tomograph. This uses sound waves to detect signs of decay deep inside the trunk of the tree; signs that would not be visible to the naked eye.

The tomogram reveals the thickness of the residual wall of the tree. Acoustic tomograms uncover the risk of breakage near to branch wounds and above ground cavities. Collecting this information is non-invasive for the tree; it causes no harm at all.

As soon as the tree’s condition is known, we prepare a recommendation of work where this is required. This may be pruning, disease or pest control or even tree removal.

What are the different types of tree report?

There are various different types of tree report. These include:

Tree Condition Safety Survey & Inspection

This is a general tree safety survey. It covers all the trees located in a specific area, recording the quantity, their species, height and canopy spread and closeness to property or anything substantial such as public highways. If the area is of significant size, for example a park, events ground, estate gardens or commercial premises, then the survey will usually be zoned on a risk level basis. Zones close to overhead power lines or next to to a public footpath will usually be considered high risk for example.

Once the general survey is complete, if any trees are believed to be defective, a further more detailed inspection will be carried out using the methods outlined above.

Tree condition safety surveys are often a requirement of property and / or liability insurance providers.

Arboricultural Mortgage Report

Mortgage lenders sometimes request a tree report as proof there is no risk of subsidence due to root damage. Such risks can result in a reduction in value of the property, which is why the lender has an interest.

As tree surgeons we put this report together by analysing the tree to identify any problems.

Planning Application and Development Surveys

Tree reports required for planning applications are multi-faceted. The first part is a British Standards BS5837 survey which is related to official construction recommendations. Its aim is to achieve the best possible balance between valuable existing trees and new property development. These surveys represent the main documentation used by local planning authorities to assess planning applications.

The second part is an arboricultural method statement, followed by a tree protection or constraints plan. These set out how trees are protected throughout the development. This type of report must be totally accurate and robust enough to withstand cross-examination should any appeal or public inquiry ensue.
