What is a Tree Inspection?

It’s a periodical check to gauge the condition of your tree identifying a necessary course of action if one is required.

Why have your Trees inspected?

An inspection can give you peace of mind in understanding whether your tree is healthy or unsafe. We can identify symptoms or features and highlight their significance.

InspectionsAs a tree owner you have a legal duty of care to take reasonable care to ensure your trees do not pose a risk to people or property.

A tree inspection gives a recorded expert opinion from a trained, qualified and experienced Arboriculturalist. We at Tree Wise have achieved the Lantra National Award in Professional Tree Survey and Inspection and have the experience of having surveyed over 2000 trees.
