Tree risk assessment using Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA)
Property owners and managers have a duty under English law to ensure, insofar as 'reasonably practicable', that people and property are not exposed to unreasonable levels of risk from the failure of trees in their control.
Our risk assessments provide a risk category and where necessary, specify remedial works to reduce that risk to an appropriate and agreed level.
If you are at all concerned about your trees call us to talk through your options and get some advice on how best to proceed.
