Why would you need an Aboriculturist's Report?

There are a number of possible reasons for requiring an Arboriculturist’s Report:

1. If you are planning a development close to trees, your Local Planning Authority will normally expect you to provide a Tree Survey and Aboricultural Impact Assessment (to BS5837) with your planning application.

2. If you are a property owner, you have a duty of care to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of your trees. Depending on your circumstances this may require regular Tree Risk Assessments.

3. If you are concerned that a tree near your building is causing, or may in the future, cause damage to the property or is affecting its value

If you have a building that appears to have already been damaged by a tree (for example subsidence caused by tree roots), then a report from an Arboriculturist may be useful however a Structural Inspection from a Structural Engineer or Building Surveyor would probably be more suitable

The cost for an Arboriculturalist to visit a property, examine a tree (or a group of trees) and produce a report, will vary greatly depending on individual requirements.  The prices generated on this website are estimates only and assume that the requirement is reasonably straight forward.  The estimate would include the cost for the Arboriculturist to travel to the site, inspect the tree and produce a brief report.  For a more accurate estimate of the possible cost you will need to speak to your chosen Arboriculturist. Before placing an order for an Arboriculturist’s Report you should ensure that your chosen supplier has suitable qualifications, experience and insurance.

If you are also about to buy a property then you may wish to consider obtaining a Building Survey or Homebuyers Report for your new prospective home.

What do our Customers say about our Aboriculturalists?

We send an email to all of the Customers who request estimates from our website asking for any feedback they may want to give.  These are some of their comments:

I know the website well so it was a logical place for me to look for a local Arboriculturist. I used Dart Tree Consultancy. Stewart of Dart Tree Consultancy contacted us very quickly. He was the only supplier who did but as he was local this wasn't a problem. He came out to the house very quickly and his report was comprehensive. We will be using his services again in the future
Alison, Torquay, Devon
I contacted two of the tree companies that came up and Mr P wilkins of the Ruskins Consultancy contacted me, via email, the next day. We spoke on the phone the next day and Mr Wilkins dealt with all details with the estate agents, then kept me in the loop via email/phone. All details were dealt within three days and the report was sent to me within the five days of first making contact with Mr Wilkins. Payment was as listed on your website of 225.00, paid directly into The Ruskins Consultancy account. I have to say that he was brilliant and I have kept his details on file for any future ref, either for myself or family and friends. Also thank you for your website and its easy usage.
Sonia, Watford
I used Devon Tree Services found through your website. Very efficient service by your site and the surveyor.
David, nr Exeter, Devon
The website was easy to use, results in 2 minutes which was accurate and allowed us to choose the supplier easiest (and most importantly cheapest). I used MWA Arboriculture Ltd. They were excellent - did survey on 12/15 hours notice and the completed report was with us within one working day of payment. Made a massive difference as the original surveyors report was massively flawed!!
