Finding the right person for advice

Recommended Posts

Thanks for replies so far.

 

Just want to find someone who can do a report etc. 

 

I have a large tree which if it fell would cause depending on direction numerous issues.

 

Condition leads me to believe there is concern. However I am no expert and so looking for help.

 

I appreciate people will have thoughts on this one. 

 

If anyone can advise on where to seek a qualified person and what qualifications I would be looking for it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again.

 

I appreciate people may want photographs explanation or other things.

 

Unfortunately I am just asking here for the following advice.

 

What qualifications should I be looking for given the following:

 

There is a tree in a neighbouring garden which is over the size of a average 2 floor house.

 

Looking at condition and recent events the tree looks to be a source of concern.

 

Appreciate there are differing levels of service out at present.

 

However I just want the tree to be assessed and know that it is not going to fall. That it is ok and not in any distress.

 

Again just looking for advice only on what qualifications to look for and where I can find someone qualified who can carry out relevant tree survey.

The types of qualifications to look out for are ND, level 4, HND, level 6, BSc, MSc, or, Lantra PTI, in arboriculture. Could also check for professional membership of Arboriculture Association or Chartered Institute of Foresters.  
More  important to check that chosen expert has professional indemnity insurance to cover giving the advice you require. 

Both AA and ICF list members by area.
