A land owner or property owner has responsibility for the trees on the site and is obliged to take “reasonable care” to monitor and ensure the safety of the trees in accordance with Occupiers Liability Act 1954/1980. Failure to carry out these surveys may be viewed as not taking reasonable care which in the event of an accident could leave the landowner open to prosecution.
This is why a survey of the site or tree report on an individual tree is carried out by a suitably qualified arboriculturalist that meets the requirements of British Standard 5837. At Beddow Tree Specialists we provide full surveys which log each tree on the site and give an appraisal of each tree with a list of recommended works. We also undertake individual tree reports as required.
The recommended works are prioritised to allow the client to see the urgency of each job. The survey is similar to an MOT for a car and is the action a landowner must take to be deemed to have taken “reasonable care” to ensure their safety. It is of course possible to make a management plan for the trees once the survey is complete which will allow an accurate tender document to be generated for quotation purposes, and also give a predictable set of costs for the short to medium term future of the tree stock management.
“Very prompt in reply to the initial enquiry. It was all very professionally done from the visit for the quote to the completion of the work. Clear up was excellent. Can’t fault the execution or the price.”
“Thank you so much for doing an amazing job. 100% satisfied and garden was left immaculate. Will definitely use your service again! The three lads were a credit to the business and very polite”.
“Great guys, great job”
“Fantastic service. Friendly and helpful team and they cleared up after the pruning job a lot. Thank you”
“Very highly recommended! Very quick to supply a quote (which was very reasonably priced). Received a call the day before to confirm what time the team would be arriving. The team arrived on time and explained how they were planning to deal with the job. They were extremely polite and very tidy and very hard working.
These folks are highly skilled, they come equipped with all the right gear, they don’t compromise on safety and their prices are very reasonable. No hesitation in recommending them. Many thanks to all the Beddow Team!”
“I had oak tree & serval smaller trees pruned by Mike’s company & the lads were very professional & left the garden tidy. It was also pouring with rain. Very pleased with them. Thank you”
Great job, and friendly efficient team”.
