At Wotton tree Consultancy we recognise the importance of good tree care, and are committed to
common sense tree management.
The responsibilities placed upon tree owners through both common and statute law is not always clear. Wotton Tree Consultancy are all too happy to advise where clarity is needed.
All tree owners have a duty of care to ensure that people and property are kept free from harm by their trees. The law also recognises the importance of trees and therefore inserts the term "reasonable" into their rulings. As long as the tree owner has done what is reasonably expected of them, their duty of care is satisfied.
All too often, unnecessary and costly tree removal or pruning is carried out in the name of health and safety.
Through regular tree inspections by Wotton Tree Consultancy, your legal duty of care will be met and peace of mind assured.
