TREE SAFETY SURVEY

As you are probably aware property and land owners are expected to monitor and record the conditions of their trees where public have access on a regular basis.  Maintenance works should be carried out to minimise the risks of health and safety to third parties.

Insurance companies are increasingly requiring reports and surveys as a condition in their policies for tree owners.  With our trained staff we are in a position to offer tree surveys suited to your requirements.

 

For the past 35 years Westree Company has been carrying out tree related works for a number of public organisations.  These organisations include amongst others The Church Commissioners, The Diocese of Salisbury, County Councils, Town and Parish councils and London Underground Ltd.

 

Attached are example copies of a recently carried out survey and report which would be priced at £290.00 plus vat.  Annual follow up surveys would be £145.00 plus vat.

 

As you will see by the attached survey, it would consist of the following:

Trees surveyed will have a stem diameter of or larger than 150mm measured from 1.5meters above ground level. (unless otherwise stated)

The survey is based around BS3998 Tree works.


             Tagging trees with unique number system

             Identify tree species, height, girth, age and life expectancy

             Comments on its condition

             Recommendations

             Risk factor and urgency

             Guide pricing for any works identified

             Tree survey summary


These surveys can be adapted to your specific needs, further, more comprehensive surveys and inspections can be carried out. 

 

We believe the example survey should be a good basis and should identify any immediate and urgent problems (if any).

 

The initial cost per basic survey would be £120.00 plus vat and  £5 plus vat per tree surveyed.

 

Subsequent surveys (ie. Annual follow up surveys) would be discounted by 50% of the initial cost.

This is highly recommended and will serve to keep the survey as a live document.  This follow up cost may well be waived if Westree Company should be invited to carry out any recommended remedial works.

 

We believe we can offer a good professional service with exceptional value.

 

We have staff trained to carry out these types of surveys. The surveys are approved by our insurance company and professional indemnity cover is provided for all surveys carried out.

 

We hope this will be of interest to yourselves as tree owners and look forward in anticipation to any queries or services that we may help you with.
