Tree Surveys: The Different Types and Methods

Your Complete Guide

Do you need a tree survey carried out on your property? Then you may have some questions. As the provider of tree surveys Essex property owners know that they can trust, we’re here to give you all the information you need. Here’s everything you need to know about the kinds of tree surveys that we offer, and what we do to carry them out.

What is a Tree Survey?

First things first, what exactly is a tree survey? It’s a close examination of a tree, and we gather a wealth of data that we will then present to you. This data includes details such as species, age, location, crown spread, root protection areas, and the general condition of the tree. We can perform surveys on just one tree or a large number—just let us know!

Types of Tree Survey

Here at Essex Tree Brothers, we provide a wide range of tree surveys. You can take your pick from the following:

  • Oak Tree Reports
  • Willow Tree Reports
  • Conifer Tree Reports
  • Eucalyptus Tree Reports
  • Cherry Tree Reports
  • Silver Birch Reports
  • Ash Tree Reports
  • Plum Tree Reports
  • Cedar Tree Reports
  • Pine Tree Reports

We know that each species of tree presents its own unique challenges, and our ten years of experience means that we can take a totally tailored approach to the surveys we carry out. No two trees are the same, and we bear this in mind at every stage of the survey process.

The Importance of Tree Surveys

There are many reasons why a tree survey might be needed. These include land management, development projects, and safety compliance. You may also need to submit information regarding a tree as part of an insurance policy. Whatever the reason, you can count on us to provide you with the information you need.

  • Legal Compliance: Tree surveys are often required by law to protect and conserve certain species of trees, especially those under tree protection orders or in environmentally sensitive areas.
  • Development Planning: They play a vital role in the design and planning of new developments by assessing existing trees and integrating them into the project design. This helps ensure compliance with regulations and minimises environmental impact.
  • Risk Management: By identifying potential risks posed by trees, such as structural defects or proximity to buildings, tree surveys assist in implementing appropriate measures to mitigate these risks and ensure public safety.
  • Ecological Conservation: Tree surveys contribute to conservation efforts by assessing the ecological value of trees and recommending measures for their protection and improvement.
