Pro-active management of a population of trees aims to identify issues and deal with them before they escalate in to complex problems that can require greater attention and expense, many Councils, Schools & Colleges, Hospitals, Private Estates, Office & Industrial, Healthcare, Private & Social Housing, Home Owners, Historic Properties e.g. Large estates , Leisure & Hospitality e.g. Golf Courses, Hotels, have a pro-active tree inspection and maintenance programme in place.

 

  • The carrying out of regular tree inspections helps to identify problems and take preventive action.
  • Keeping trees unless there are good Arboricutural, environmental or risk related reasons not to do
  • Grow a wide range of tree species though maintenance, management and planting programmes
  • Undertake short rotation pollarding on certain trees that are growing very close to
  • Pro-actively manage trees based on maintenance cycles

 

The undertaking of pro-active tree surveys is essential to tree management, making sure they are up to date and records being kept of these inspections is necessary, and is needed to meet industry best practice, and legal obligations.

 

“In regards to risks associated with trees, landowners have a statutory duty of care under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 & Occupiers Liability Act 1984, to do all that is reasonably practical to ensure that people are not exposed to risk to their health and safety from trees in their ownership.”

 

A tree strategy can be made so routine work is organised and planned, and in being proactive reduces the reactive tree work e.g. reducing the risk of failure of trees, and the potential damage or injury to people or property and expense.
