A detailed written report is then provided, together with any recommendations, if necessary, for remedial action. (See Tree Maintenance)
Trees are invaluable organisms, especially in the urban environment where trees and the habitat they provide, may provide the only wildlife in an otherwise bleak outlook.
Animals and other microorganisms may live on trees with little or no harm being caused to the tree. Some organisms however have a detrimental effect on the trees health to the point where it may become a safety hazard. Damage caused by these organisms includes foliage dieback, wood and root decay and loss of wood strength.
Other problems that trees face in the urban environment include:
- Excavation and trenching through root systems
- Drought caused naturally during hot dry summers
- Soil compaction
- The application of road de-icing salt
- Adverse weather conditions
- Previous poor pruning practice leading to premature decline in trees.
Tree owners are usually responsible for any damage caused by tree failure and the courts have adopted the principle that a professional should inspect trees at regular intervals.
Treescapes (NI) can inspect trees for signs of structural weakness, decay fungi and health and safety. If you are worried about your tree please contact us to arrange an appointment.
