What is a Consulting Arborist?

Trees in our developed environment present a challenge, requiring careful planning and vigilant maintenance. The shared public trust of Governments, Business and the Private Sector is to ensure that tree plantings remain safe.

Arbor-Care has the unique and unparallelled ability to provide the following services:

  • Tree surveys that comply with Bs. 5837 2012 and provide protection and preservation reports for trees on development sites, municipal streets and parkland trees
  • Tree Hazard evaluation and condition assessment reports
  • Tree valuation appraisal reports
  • Remedial works and planting guideline reports
  • Provide expert witness to courts

When a problem occurs - (If a tree causes damage or becomes a public safety hazard) - a source for advice and mediation is often required. This is the role of the Consulting Arborist to provide a comprehensive, objective viewpoint to the diagnosis, appraisal and evaluation of arboricultural issues.

Planning consultants, statutory authorities and Individuals engaging a consulting arborist should have the confidence that their Consultant adheres to the highest standards of professional practice.

Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well cared for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property, while on the other hand poorly managed trees can become a significant liability.
Arbor-Care has the expertise to ensure your trees remain safe and viable
