JCA were instructed to carry out an arboricultural survey for mortgage purposes at a property in Barnsley.
The property was a semi-detached, two-storey dwelling. It has gardens to the front and rear which contained two Norway Spruce trees and a Wild Cherry tree.
Our consultant concluded that at the present time, and providing that the trees were regularly maintained, there were no arboricultural reasons as to why a mortgage should be refused on the property. There were also some smaller garden shrubs noted on the property, but these had a limited capacity to cause damage at the current time and were found to be in good condition. It was recommended that they should be routinely maintained, in alignment with good horticultural practice.
