Did you know that we can provide a range of Arboricultural Consultancy services:

Risk Management Surveys – Under the Occupiers Liability Act landowners have a legal responsibility to manage trees appropriately so that they do not present an unreasonable risk to persons or property.  Carrying out a periodic inspection of trees on your property helps to mitigate this and can inform the decision making process to manage your tree stock.
  Our Consultant will visit your site and carry out an inspection of the trees and produce a report of the findings, using the principles of VTA (Visual Tree Assessment) and QTRA (Quantified Tree Risk Assessment).  Our Consultant is a QTRA Licensed user, PTI (Professional Tree Inspection) certified and a member of the Consulting Arborists Society (CAS)

Mortgage Reports – Insurers and Mortgage Providers often require a Tree Report prior to making an agreement.  WTSL can provide you with an appropriate survey assessing the relevant trees on the property, their condition and making comments on risks to structural stability of the property.

BS5837 Planning and Development Surveys – Planning legislation dictates that the impact of new developments on trees and their environment are assessed and that important trees are protected throughout the development process.  WTSL can provide a comprehensive report of trees on site, we can work with developers to ensure that they are meeting the requirements of the Local Authority and to ensure that appropriate protection is in place for valued trees, this can include Impact Assessments and Arboricultural Method Statements.

We can provide consultancy services for a number of other reasons, including tree related damage (subsidence, heave, etc.), working on trees with protection (Tree Preservation Orders/Conservation Areas), veteran tree management and invasive species management (Japanese Knotweed, Himalayan Balsam, Giant Hogweed)

In addition to the above services we can also arrange ecology surveys and supervision of works on site, such as bat and nesting bird surveys, inspections for protected species, eg great crested newts, badgers, reptiles.
