Tree Surveys For Schools, Colleges & Universities
Why Would Schools, Colleges & Universities Need A Tree Survey?
If you are worried that a tree in the grounds of your institution could one day become a hazard, at Lally Tree Management, we can provide you with a Tree Risk Assessment Report that details the health of the tree and whether it could pose a danger to passers-by. These reports also provide proof of due diligence should you ever face litigation as a result of the trees.
Obviously, there are often young students in the educational institutions where we carry out work, all members of Lally Tree Management are CRB checked and verified.
Of course, as funding in many education centres around the UK increases, it is no surprise that a huge number of them are expanding rapidly. However, if the site that is planned for construction lies close to a tree, it is likely that the institution will have to hire an arborist to carry out a BS5837 Tree Survey for Planning to ensure that the foundations, once built, will not be affected or degraded by growing roots.
I a similar vein, lenders may ask for a tree mortgage report by a tree surgeon if you are in the position where you are trying to buy a property with trees nearby that may, at some point in the future, affect the value of the property.
Some trees in the grounds of schools, colleges and universities, however, are likely to gain a special status depending on their age, type and looks. Trees such as this are provided with a Tree Protection Order, or will have the area surrounding it to be a conservation area. While these tree can be moved, they can only be moved if the council are satisfied with the arboricultual consultant’s tree survey report on the TPO trees.
Special trees can also add value to the property and its grounds as a whole, and so many landowners find it useful to learn the exact value of a by contracting Lally Tree Management to provide a tree valuation report as evidence.
