What Is the Role of a Tree Surveyor?
A tree surveyor (or arboricultural surveyor) is a person who is skilled in recording the condition and location of trees near to present or planned buildings. Expert surveyors record this information in an effective way so that existing or potential issues with trees can be identified and dealt with. An experienced tree surveyor will be able to present this information in the form of an easy to understand arboricultural report.
What information do arboricultural surveyors record?
Within a site, each individual tree (or group of trees) is recorded and allocated its own unique identifying number. The tree species and dimensions are recorded next. The most important information gathered whilst surveying is the health and condition of a tree, and whether it may influence any nearby existing or proposed structures. Plotting the accurate located of trees in relation to other on-site features is important, as the distance between a tree and a building may have implications for both.
