All arborists will invariably carry out tree surveys from time to time. They can be conducted on land owned by public sector bodies or on private estates. They ensure that the individual or organisation managing the land has the correct information that they need to make decisions regarding how they will manage the tree stock. There is official guidance, namely British Standard BS5837, which sets out how decisions should be made when managing trees. A tree survey is needed before any decisions can be taken. Information Revealed by a Tree Survey A properly conducted tree survey will yield essential information about the trees in the location in question. Some of the most important information includes: The tree species, which is recorded in scientific nomenclature. The age of the tree. The physical dimensions of the tree including the trunk diameter at a recorded height and the overall height of the tree. This is identified using measuring instruments. The health and predicted life expectancy. Recommendations for managing the tree in the future, this could include restorative work or even removal. Compliance with any legislation that applies to the tree such as the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. Predicted impact of any proposed development on trees in the locality. Providing information for computer generated modelling. Pinpointing trees that add value to a development, those that are protected by law and those that do not enhance the landscape and can be safely removed. Identifying trees that present a hazard due to their physical condition. Carrying out a Tree Survey A tree survey is often a significant undertaking and may involve several arborists and specialist equipment. Before you start, it is essential to protect your own safety and that of your employees by identifying any hazardous trees. A preliminary scoping survey is carried out to identify ‘Target Zones’. Ideally, each tree is assessed from all sides but there are some circumstances in which this is not safe. A river bank would be a typical example. For each tree, the following is usually recorded in a standardised way using a pre-designed form that is stored on paper or electronically. Surveyed trees are usually identified with tree tags which are physically attached to the tree. Information on a typical survey form includes: Species Position - usually expressed as map coordinates supplemented by a description Notes on distinctive attributes Approximation of age - this could be designated as categorical variables such as ‘newly planted’ ranging to ‘over-mature’ Gaps in the crown, leaf colour, presence of dead wood and broken branches Presence of cracks or splits in branches Presence of fungus or splits and cracks in the trunk Presence of ivy Presence of leaning and a record of what it is leaning towards Signs of decay within the main trunk and base Obvious root damage Obvious cracks, uplifting around the tree Classifying Tree Condition Using the survey information, the overall physical condition of the tree can be classed. They are generally described as: Good - a tree that has a full crown and no signs of decay or damage; a long-life expectancy is predicted Fair - a tree that is mainly healthy but has some minor defects and/or thinning of the crown Poor - a tree that has some major defects or that lacks vigour; the life expectancy is short Dangerous - a tree that should be urgently removed because it presents a hazard Dead - a tree that has died and needs to be removed Using the survey data, works on the trees can be prioritised and sensible recommendations for the management of the tree stock can be made.
Hi All, Anyone had any experience of the ARBORICULTURE I BHT106 ACS distance learning course (website listed below)? Is it recognised? I am looking into routes to eventually becoming a tree surveyor and was wondering if this would be a useful course to take? Has anyone got any general advice on the best route(s) to becoming a qualified tree surveyor? Thanks in advance, Sam https://www.acsedu.co.uk/Courses/General-Horticulture/ARBORICULTURE-I-BHT106-93.aspx
Hi all, im interested to hear what software/hardware any tree consultants/surveyors on these forums are using At present we are using a set of Trimble recons running Trimble terrasync to collect data in the field. These are extremely rugged with immense battery life. We also use the Trimble GPS Pathfinder Office desktop Software as a means of converting the collected point/shape/line data into a format that we can use with autoCAD. This set-up is diverse enough for pretty much any survey except the very small, where data entry becoms counter productive. lets hear what you guys use and what you think?
Afternoon all, Im looking at purchasing some new map based data collection software and GPS logging hardware. Wondering if anyone has experiences good or bad of what is out there. Im a consultancy outfit so it is simply accurate data capture that I need, no budgeting or Customer management bits required. The hardware, I have already made a decision on but as yet undecided on software.. Depends on price, adaptability, ease of use, continual development etc. PocketGIS is an option. The standard Ezytreev, Arbortrack are a little more than I need for the work I do. Many thanks
