Tree reports and tree surveys are very useful documents that provide a wealth of information and recommendations about trees. These reports not only provide you with the information you need to know about your trees, but they also offer advice on how to maintain these trees so that they will live a long and healthy life.

There are several things that you can learn from these reports. For example, tree reports provide important information such as the species of the tree, the height of the tree, its overall health, and whether it has any disease.

They can also identify any potential threats to the tree and include a plan of action to control those threats.

A tree survey is similar to a tree report but may not go into such detail. It is often used to calculate a tree's value when it is for sale or to assess potential risk when planning for an activity that may affect a tree.

What is a tree report?

When having to complete a tree report for a client, it is important to know what is required within that report. A tree report is essentially a large tree survey in written form. You will receive a written report detailing the trees health relative to its surrounding environment. The report should cover the following aspects of the tree: the location of the tree, its overall health, any re-growth or deadwood present and any recommended treatments.

A tree report or survey is a written document by a qualified arborist that describes the condition of the trees on a property. The information contained in the report will often be used for insurance purposes, so that the homeowner's insurance company can evaluate the risk to the property.

The report should include a complete description of the overall health of the trees on the property, and which species of tree are affected. Because arborists have to visually inspect trees from the ground, a tree report may not include every individual tree that is on the property. A tree survey, on the other hand, is a visual inspection of all the trees on a property, which will typically include the identification of diseased and dead trees.

What does a tree report or tree survey entail?


If you can see the branches of a tree from the street, or the tree is located in the public right of way / highway, then a tree report is a requirement before a tree can be felled on council land. If you're unsure whether you're required to lodge a tree report, contact us.

What does it cost to get a tree report / tree survey done?

Typically it will depend on the tree(s) in question. A tree report will inform you of the condition of the tree, and give you an idea of how much further it will grow. It will also advise you about any necessary work that may have to be carried out.

I have trees on my property, what are my legal obligations?

It is the responsibility of the owner of a tree to ensure that it does not cause a problem or danger to the public. It is not the responsibility of the public to keep themselves out of danger. It is the responsibility of the owner of a tree to ensure that their tree does not cause a problem to their neighbours. This responsibility is covered under the "Tort of Nuisance" which is a branch of the law of negligence.


What if a tree is Covered by Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or located within a Conservation Area?

TPOs are an easy way to protect trees in a conservation area. To protect a tree from being unnecessarily felled or otherwise destroyed or damaged, its status can be registered on the TPO Register.

The owner is then subject to a range of controls and restrictions regarding the tree and its removal or felling. If they do not abide by the controls and restrictions, they are subject to penalties.

Trees are a vital part of our environment and daily lives, providing needed shade, beauty, and natural resources. But sometimes trees can be a nuisance. When this occurs tree owners may want to get rid of the tree. This is where the local council and tree protection laws enter the picture - speak to us if you need expert advice.

What is a Visual Tree Assessment (VTA)?

In order to assess the health of a tree, the first step is to examine it's overall structure. This includes all trees within the boundary fence of the property. This process is called a "Visual Tree Assessment" or "VTA". Most property owners are surprised at how much they can see from ground level and how much more they can see from a small platform, particularly when a knowledgeable pair of eyes is doing the looking.

When trees are damaged, it can be difficult to tell whether or not they are in need of urgent attention, which is why many arborists rely on visual tree assessments (VTA) to quickly assess the health of trees.

A VTA is a visual examination of a tree that attempts to determine whether or not it is in immediate danger of decline or decay. It is performed by a skilled arborist or tree care professional, who uses his or her expert knowledge and experience to evaluate the overall health of the tree.

 Does a Tree report detect Disease and Decay Detection in a tree?

A tree report is a good place to start when buying a house or property, but not everyone buys a property with a tree on it. So, what do you do if you are looking to buy a property with trees that are free of disease and decay? It is a good idea to take out a tree report that can detect damage and decay in a tree.

A Tree Report will always include a professional inspection of the tree, which will assess the health of the tree and identify any disease or decay problems that have developed.
