  1. The important point is 'imminent danger'............... see below, if the property has been repossessed someone owns it and they are therefore liable for the trees. I would suggest as the third party (you are not the tree owner) to contact your insurers and take their advice and follow this, to protect yours (and theirs) asset the miscellaneous provisions act is rarely used, and it looks very likely that the current owner is easily traceable even if it is a bank and your insurer would have a set procedure for such a case etc.... LOCAL GOVERNMENT (MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS) ACT 1976This Act allows the Council to deal with dangerous trees located on private land. Trees are the responsibility of the person who owns the land on which they are growing. However, if a tree on private land becomes dangerous in a way that could harm someone else or their property and the owner does not appear to be doing anything about it, the Council may act to make the tree safe. This can be by serving a notice on the owner to make the tree safe or, in exceptional circumstances, the Council can deal with the tree themselves and recover costs from the owner. These powers are used as a last resort and are only intended for situations when there is an imminent danger.

    Tree Scans

    Images of scans using tomography Images 2d and 3d using tomography system, mainly Fakopp Arborsonic and ArborElectro.
  4. Conservation Area - also listed buildings can be a problem ..........
  5. We scan and send to the client for them to put up, if they dont, it's at their risk of it been checked and can cause delays. Non-determination if not decided in time (TPO), The LPA don't like this against their 'performance '...................stats.
  6. check out www.treediagnostics.co.uk for hi-tech tree kit including tomography systems. Fakopp agent for the UK.
  7. Online applications take under 10 mins and you have a history of what you have sent.
  8. Just set up standard clauses like the one above, they the LPA need to know if it goes 'wrong' they have prove of what should have been done. There is no point having 2m if it doesn't relate to anything else that measurable.
  9. Axciscape (via Chris Skellern) import export into cad,import pdf's/ google maps etc user defined fields. https://www.axciscape.com/ We have used this for years Pear technology have range which a lot of people use with and without mapping .https://www.peartechnology.co.uk/ Then if into cad Keytree is one of the cheaper ways to get an up to date CAD engine Rugged tablets various from the more common toughpads and now tree diagnostics www.treediagnostics.co.uk sell sumo tablet products for forestry/tree surveyors. The rugged tablets lets you work easier in the rain than non rugged and you can drop them without worrying!! It depends what out puts and what type of surveys there is also a few others which I just cant remember the names !
  10. Hi, I thought the lilac gave it away, anyway, arb association now do a women in arb group to bring to the attention of suppliers how 'pants' the clothing and boot sizes are for some of us. Several socks is the answer to the boots.Contact them and they will put you in touch with the group if you are a member. Good luck. Sue B (Joint Director of a consultancy firm and unpaid assistant for Tree Diagnostics Ltd ! - tree 'gadgets' suppliers but came from the tools and ran a tree surgery company too, 3 children 2 of which are arborists too!)
  11. Hi brilliant idea, Any sites around Harrogate, York ! We told a few tree surgeons to go to the local allotment site but they are getting a bit over run with it and security is a problem. thanks
  12. Ensure you have access agreed, in writing , or you cannot enter the neighbours 'air space' as this would be trespass......... Your client can do nothing other than advise the tree owner that they feel the tree is unsafe, they do not have to act (but they are liable for any ultimate damage, except for say abrading on your client roof ( as your client should maintain their property from this encroachment) and then your client can request that you prune back to the boundary, offering the items back (pruning so as not to make the tree decline........... as then your client could become liable, under common law. If your client is now totally paranoid they will have to just get on with and pay ! It is not 'fair' but rarely things are. The tree 'owner' is liable if the tree fails or causes damage* (if you have not made unstable for example by pruning or 'chopping off roots..........) * Some exceptions, Hope this helps
  13. TPP - Ideally the RPA'S should be shown, if you have shown perhaps temporary TPF which might need removing for specific tasks, it is a remainder that its a no go area unless there is protection in place , to prevent compaction etc, easier for the workers on the ground to understand why the fencing is where you have shown it etc... other wise they may alter. You could always provide a drawing set with and without by turning layers off , but this need referencing on the plan to avoid a mess up.....
