How Can I Tell If a Tree Is Hazardous?
As it is the property owner’s responsibility to provide for the safety of trees on their property, it’s important to keep an eye out for potential defects and hazards. Increasingly, insurance companies refuse to pay out for damage caused by trees if they have not recently been maintained or surveyed. Our tree surgeons are experienced in maintenance, surveying and carrying out any work that’s required, but common, easily identifiable hazards include:
- Adjacent or Nearby Trees That Are Fallen or Dead
- Cracks and Cavities in the Trunk or Major Branches
- Trunk Leaning Strongly In One Direction
- Roots Damaged, movement, or Broken roots
- Recent Construction in the Area
- Decayed Wood in Trunk or Branches
- Mushrooms at the Base of the Tree
- Excessive deadwood in the canopu
What Is a Tree Preservation Order?
If you live in an area designated for conservation by a local planning authority, any trees and woodlands on your property may be subject to council protection and consent may be required. A tree preservation order (TPO) prohibits the cutting down or wilful damage or destruction of trees or woodland without consent. Consnetwhich can be obtained with eight weeks’ prior notice, providing you have enough evidence to support your application.
Trees that are imminently dangerous or hazardous may be cut down under 5 days’ notice, but the council will need to be notified of your intentions. The maximum penalty for felling TPO trees without consent is currently a £20,000 fine. If you are unsure of whether your problem trees are protected or if your work requires consent, consult our experienced tree surgeons and we will do all due diligence
