Consultancy & Surveying

Thompson Tree Services (Midlands) Ltd can offer an extensive Consultancy and Surveying for a variety of reasons it may be that the safety and health of the tree needs to be established due to damage age or disease, or the requirements of a mortgage report or part of a planning application.
We use Pear Technology Tree Management software and survey equipment designed primarily for the arboriculturalist, contractor or land manager seeking to meet Duty of Care responsibilities. Our hand-held, GPS based equipment enables fast and efficient tree survey data capture both for general surveys and to meet the latest BS5837 or equivalent requirements.
This enables us to provide a user friendly efficient mapping system for any size area or site that requires management for any number of requirements. From a domestic garden to a large scale conservation area we are able to collate continuous information on trees, plants and anything that maybe a requirement to the survey. This information and the details required can be updated and accessed simply and easily without the need to re-survey the area in full depth. We will need to make a TPO (Tree Preservation Order) application to establish what work can be undertaken or what restrictions may be in place.

Tree Surveys for Planning & Development

If there are trees on or nearby a proposed development, your planning applications will need a BS5837:2012 tree survey. Councils may refuse to validate your planning applications which could delay your project. We provide professional clear reports that maximise the chances of planning success.

Tree Safety Surveys

Dangerous, poorly managed trees can occasionally result in tragic consequences, which you could be held liable for. Tree owners have a legal duty of care to take a balanced and proportionate approach to tree safety. A tree that could cause harm if it fell must be systematically inspected by a competent person and managed to keep risks low.

Tree Surveys for Mortgage & Insurers

Mortgage lenders often ask for a tree survey as a condition of granting a mortgage and insurers may require a tree survey to assess if trees are implicated in subsidence damage. Our services range from pre-purchase mortgage tree surveys for homeowners to subsidence claim appraisals.
