24hr Emergency Call-Out Service
Maidstone Tree Services aims to provide a reasonable balance between safety and conservation, risk and public access. We can advise you as to the legal status of trees, whether there is any decay or damage affecting trees and also whether there are any conservation factors which need to be taken into consideration e.g. bat nesting.
We can also carry out a Tree Hazard Assessment from the ground using a Visual Tree Assessment method and will record:
Tree species, size and age class
Physiological and structural condition
Preliminary recommendations - which may focus on moving the target, rather than remedial tree work, climbing inspection or internal decay detection, thermal imaging, and chlorophyll fluorescence testing and will prioritise action recommended.
Date of next routine inspection
Recommendations for remedial work will take into account:
The target - i.e. property, people and frequency of use
The magnitude of hazard - i.e. the size of tree, or limb
The probability of failure occurring before the next inspection
Please note that under the Occupiers Liability Act 1984 you have a duty of care to ensure your trees are safe. Statute law does not require the tree owner to maintain completely safe trees, and it is certainly not practical or possible to inspect each tree on a daily basis. The duty only requires the tree owner and those responsible for them "to take reasonable care".
Maidstone Tree Services can provide tree reports and assessments, along with advising on the legal status of trees.
