concerned about the health or safety of your trees and need expert advice?
The risk from falling trees and branches is generally very low, but when they become degraded, trees close to people and property can cause injury and damage, and monitoring may be required. Using the QTRA method, we will assess your trees and help you avoid unnecessary tree work by guiding your reasonable and proportionate management of risks from falling trees.
Tree risk can be exaggerated by scaremongers but using the QTRA method developed here at Cheshire Woodlands and used in 18 countries, we will take a reasonable and proportionate approach to assessing the risks from your trees.
Our risk assessments inform a balance approach to considering not only the risks, but also the benefits from trees, and in the event of a low risk being realised, our surveys help owners demonstrate that tree safety has been managed reasonably and proportionately.
Tree risk management does not just mean risk minimisation, it should balance the benefits of risk reduction with the associated costs relative to both lost tree value and any financial resources required to reduce the risk. Our team of consultants are experienced in conducting tree inspections and risk assessments across all sectors, including highways, schools, stately homes, golf courses and hotels.
For councils, estates, housing associations and other large landowners, Cheshire Woodlands can assist in developing a tree risk management policy and a strategy for its implementation.
