At Bark and Branch Tree Care we provide tree pruning in Glossop and Disley, but we also provide tree survey services. Today we’re taking a closer look at what a tree survey entails and why you need one for your property.
What is a Tree Survey
A tree survey is conducted by experts who are typically tree surgeons. It is performed for both private and public properties.
The mission for any tree survey is to offer up complete information about the trees on a given piece of land. Property managers and homeowners then use this information to make decisions based on facts. Trees may be selected for removal or may be left where they are depending on the survey.
What Information is Revealed?
Tree surveys provide information about the trees themselves. Professional arborists use the British Standard BS5837 to judge trees. This standard defines whether the trees can or should remain on the property and which ones should be removed. The survey produces information such as:
- Life expectancy for the trees
- Species of the trees
- Ages of the trees
A professional knows how to measure and determine the health of the plants and trees under the care of the homeowner or property manager. Armed with this information, an informed decision can take place.
Why Might You Need One?
Some areas, tree surveys are required by law to protect and conserve certain species of trees known to exist in the area. In other cases, information garnered from tree surveys can be used for landscape designers to generate computer designs for what the property could look like. These drafts are more realistic and ideal for land management. This could also help increase the value of the property as well.
Tree surveys are also good for pinpointing any hazards. Trees that are about to fall or are dead should be removed promptly if discovered during the survey.
