Tree Safety Advice
All tree owners have a legal duty of care to ensure their trees are reasonably safe. How this duty is discharged will vary widely depending on the tree and its surroundings. Failure to consider tree safety can result in costly litigation or invalidate your insurance.
For individual householders with a few trees in their garden, a visit and informal advice from a tree surgeon is probably sufficient. Epic Tree Care can arrange a visit to inspect your trees and provide a free quote for any work.
Some householders may need a written report assessing the safety of their trees. As tree safety reports may be necessary for mortgages, insurance, house sales, or just for peace of mind.
If you are a larger landowner, landlord, or run a commercial or publicly accessible site with trees, you will need to think about tree safety. You may also need written records of tree inspections and a Tree Risk Management Plan.
