The land owner has a ‘Duty of Care’ to maintain trees in a safe condition, irrespective of where they are located or proximity to the general public. Ground Control can help.
We work closely with the local authorities, checking for Tree Preservation Orders (TPO’s) and conservation area status. We also meet the local Tree Officers on site to establish permitted scope of work. All of which helps keep you within the Law.
We undertake ground based and tree climbing visual surveys and inspections together with PICUS testing to identify hidden rot and decay.
We provide detailed site layout and tree plotting surveys so you know where your trees are. They can also be clearly identified by means of tagging. Our ‘Tree Condition Report’ identifies problem trees and helps target cost according to priority and planned maintenance programmes.
Having identified problems, we are able to provide competitively priced surgery using our NPTC certificated operatives.
