We provide advise and management plans for trees based on health and safety and risk for clients ranging from Schools, Highways Authorities, LPA, Parish Councils, Facility managers, Church, Historic and open Gardens, Housing Assocations and trusts.


Assessment of health or structural integrity of trees can be achieved in various ways, from a visual tree assessment (VTA) that explores the body language of the tree, through to various non-invasive technologies, which can explore internal condition, tree stability and vitality to help inform an assessment of the trees safety.


Early identification of a pest, disease, biotic or abiotic factors can be significant to longer term tree health, and is therefore essential to ensure that trees are as safe as is reasonably practicable.


Tree inspections are generally made from ground level, though climbing inspections are offered where necessary to allow informed remedial management.


We are specialists in the use of picus sonic tomogram and Picus Treetronic tomogram providing internal scans of trees, detailed with the further details section.
