Why do you need a tree report?
Normally, there’s four reasons:
- Mortgage Approval. Your lender or mortgage underwriter may want an arboriculturist’s tree report to compliment your bank valuation survey.
- Health and Safety. Do you know if your trees are safe, or whether or not they present a danger to the public or property? If not, you probably should. An arboriculturist can tell you!
- Subsidence. The fact is, most trees will never cause any damage to buildings, but a small percentage of them do, largely because the prevailing climatic and environmental conditions beneath your foundations are conducive to soil moisture deficits, and the tree(s) exacerbate this.
- Need an arboriculturalist for help with planning and development? (You’re on the wrong page — click to be taken to our Planning Tree Survey page.)
Mortgage Tree Report from £249: Money Back Guarantee
Buying a house is stressful enough. We’ve all been there. The last thing you need is your bank saying they wont lend until you’ve got an arboriculturist report. And yet that’s exactly what’s happened to you. The report is to risk assess the tree(s) for hazards to people and property. Also, it's to confirm that the property is not suffering from damage or influence by tree roots. Our arboriculturists are certified for Tree Reports for Mortgage and Insurance Approval and our £1,000,000 professional indemnity insurance policy ensures that you are in safe hands. From the word ‘Go’, we normally provide your report back by e-mail inside of a week, and we guarantee that your lender will accept it.
Arboriculturalist Advice - Tree Condition Reports from £349
If you’re responsible for trees, you will probably wish to exercise your legal Duty of Care by having your trees surveyed for Health & Safety. We respond to your needs by providing ‘positive-recording’ tree inspections, which means your money is spent only on our time recording, inspecting and reporting on trees with gross defects. After all, most users of arboriculturist's reports don’t care – quite rightly – where and what their healthy and defect-free trees are. This is particularly penitent for large private gardens, municipal property or e.g. schools, who may have hundreds (or thousands) of trees; with only a tiny minority requiring any tree surgery work. Got a question about tree safety? Call or e-mail us today.
Arboriculturist's Subsidence Reports from £449
Subsidence is complicated. If you want to discuss the precise soil mechanics behind it, you’ll need to call us. Here’s the ‘need to know’: Provide us with whatever engineer's reports you have, which we will review prior to attending your site. A site survey will inform your arboriculturist’s tree report, which will make practical and cost effective solutions to alleviate the problem. In the majority of instances the only practical solution is to remove the tree. However, if you don’t own the tree, or a preservation order protects it, you will almost certainly require some assistance in navigating the complex process of satisfying your insurer and negotiating with local planning authorities, and neighbours!.
