A client contacted us requiring a tree survey and report for mortgage purposes.
The property itself was a detached, two storey dwelling. It had gardens to the front and rear which contained two pine trees. The garden was suffering from slight water-logging, especially in one small area to the southwest corner of the garden, where the ground dipped slightly.
Our consultant determined that so long as category 1 tree works were undertaken, there were no arboricultural reasons to indicate that the trees had compromised the structural integrity of the building or that the trees at the current time posed a health and safety risk. It was also recommended that the trees were maintained at their current sizes to prevent any future concern.
