OMC Associates survey trees and woods to assess their condition and whether any possible hazards exists. The surveys can be carried out at two levels of assessment but both levels provide clear recommendations of any tree work required to avert foreseeable risks. We are not tree surgeons and do not gain from recommending treework; skilled and appropriate insured tree work is costly and so we only recommend what is absolutely necessary.
Though it is thankfully rare, trees do fail and cause damage or harm. This is often as result of poor tree works or damaging groundworks that render trees unstable and vulnerable to severe weather.
Owners of trees or estate managers have a duty of care to ensure their trees do not pose a danger. Professional, periodic inspections will address this and can reduce insurance premiums.
