Benefits of Our Tree Inspection Services

If you have never previously considered having the trees on your land inspected or surveyed by a team of professionals, think about the benefits our inspection and survey services have to offer:


  • The Path to Compliance – Once your trees have been surveyed, we can prepare a detailed report for you to peruse at your leisure. The information contained in the report will depend on the particular service you choose but, in almost all cases, should include our recommended actions in the event any problems are discovered.
  • Avoiding Unnecessary Hassles and Expense – With regular inspections, you can keep a closer eye on your trees and take preventative action when early warning signs are spotted.
  • Smoother Planning Application Process – If you are applying for planning permission for a site on which trees are growing, you will almost certainly need a tree planning survey to support your application.
  • Actionable Information – Whatever your specific situation or requirements, a detailed tree survey from Epic Tree Care will provide you with the information you need to take decisive action.

I needed a 5 yearly pruning of my extensive trees and removal of 1 fir and 2 dead beech. I contacted Arborist Direct and they put me in touch with Epic Tree Care their agent for Aberdeenshire. Elaine came to view the trees and given her advice which was very helpful. The quote was a little higher than expected but the tree work was carried out excellently on the dates advised. The team leader George was very customer facing and helpful. The results were well worth the cost. A very professional service. I will use Epic again. If elsewhere in Scotland I will certainly contact Arborist Direct to see who their local agent is.
