Types of Condition Survey

There are two types of tree condition survey, namely:

Comprehensive - all the trees within the agreed remit are visually inspected and individually recorded. The comprehensive survey is ideal for housing associations, local authorities and other bodies who are publically accountable.

Actionable Defect - this is also a visual inspection of all the trees within the agreed remit but the report only records those trees which exhibit an actionable defect. An actionable defect is one which, in the opinion of the surveyor, requires remedial work to be carried out in order to reduce the risk of failure to an acceptable level. The actionable defect survey is ideal for individuals, agents, and managers of privately owned trees.

Survey Costs

There are two separate costs associated with the tree condition survey, namely:

  • the cost of the survey itself, and
  • the cost of the remedial works identified by the surveyor.

The competence and independence of the surveyor is always the key to a desirable and successful survey outcome.
