The importance of an arboricultural report or tree survey from an experienced tree consultant.
Living in a area where trees are plentiful is both a blessing and a curse for those considering further development on their homes. On one hand, they provide an unrivalled beauty and aesthetic to a residence. On the other hand, however, their root systems and overall health if not maintained correctly can put a landowner into a very difficult position both legally and financially. Lally Tree Management provide a range of arboricultural surveys and accompanying reports for a range of situations and reasons.
If you have a tree that is extending over public walkways, many landowners are unaware that if the tree were to be felled in weather, or even lose a branch and subsequently injure a passer-by, it would be the landowner who is reponsible. For this reason, many landowners with trees of questionable health decide to have an tree risk assessment that determines the condition of the tree. The provided arboricultural report provides them with proof that due-diligence has been carried out, relieving them of legal responsibility
Landowners will also find themselves needing to have an tree survey carried out if they are planning to extend their home, or simply build a new structure on a newly purchased plot of land. These are known as BS5837 Tree Surveys. The arboricultural reports produced from these planning surveys are a legal requirement for any planning permission application and can only carried out by a qualified arborist, and are intended to highlight any possible issue the tree or its root system may present to new build.
Further types of arboricultural surveys include Tree Mortgage Reports, which is often requested by a mortgage lender in certain situations to determine whether or not the property in question is a sound investment. This is usually due to the suspicion from a chartered surveyor that a tree maybe interfering with a property that is potentially being purchased, and the resulting arboricultural report allows them to confirm whether or not this could affect the property’s value further down the line.
Lally Tree Management is also a specialist in providing arboricultural reports on the status of tree protection orders as well as trees that grow within conversation areas.These arboricultural surveys are designed to provide evidence to local authorities who are able to accept or deny a landowners request to develop, or otherwise interfere with where the tress in question are growing.
For certain landowners, however, they may simply wish to have an tree valuation report that places a value on a special tree in their grounds. As many arborists can tell you, 200 year old trees that have stood for many generations are not easy to replace if they get damaged – and are therefore likely to be worth more than your expect. If you are considering selling your home, it is worth bearing in mind that a high value tree will allow you to increase you asking price.
