Visual Tree Assessments (VTA)
There are many different reasons why you might require an assessment on your trees, Health and Safety being the primary requirement. The Occupiers Liabilities Act of 1984 states you should take all reasonable care to ensure your trees do not cause harm or damage to people or property.
Visual Tree Assessments will help you manage your trees in a proactive way. VTAs will be carried out from ground level using laser height measuring equipment, binoculars, sounding hammers, and probes.
