Causes Of Tree Emergencies And How To Prevent Them

The most common reason for emergency tree work is severe weather, such as storms and high winds.

However, poor maintenance, pests, and disease can also cause these dangerous situations.

The best way to prevent tree-related emergencies is to monitor your trees’ health and condition regularly. 

Look for abnormalities or signs of disease and decay, and if you’re in doubt, consult a professional tree surgeon.

Our certified tree surgeons can provide tree inspections, surveys and reports to identify structural weaknesses or issues that may need addressing.

We can also take action on any recommended work to help prevent any problems while ensuring the health and condition of your trees. 

When trees are deemed too dangerous, we recommend they should be felled and removed. 

Due to their unpredictability, felling dangerous trees requires specialist skills, knowledge and experience.

North London Tree Surgeons’ expert arborists have everything required to fell and remove hazardous trees in the most challenging locations. 

If you have a tree causing you concern, contact us today.

Dangerous Trees: Who Is Responsible?

When it comes to the safety of trees, the responsibility usually falls on the landowner. However, there are exceptions, such as when a rental agreement assigns tree management duties to the tenants. 

According to common law, tree owners or managers have a duty of care to “take reasonable care to avoid acts or omissions that could reasonably be foreseen as likely to injure one’s neighbour“. 

They also have a responsibility under the Occupiers Liability Acts to ensure the safety of visitors and trespassers on their land. 

If a tree fails and causes harm or damage, the owner may be liable if they were negligent in maintaining the tree’s safety. 

To mitigate risks, we recommend that tree owners regularly have their trees inspected by a qualified professional.

When employing a tree inspector, it’s vital to check for credentials and whether they have adequate professional indemnity insurance.

Suppose you have concerns about a dangerous tree on a neighbouring property. 

In that case, it is best to write a polite letter to the owner, expressing your concerns and requesting an inspection by a qualified professional. 

If you cannot reach a satisfactory resolution, using a mutually known third party as a mediator can be helpful.

Say mediation using a third party fails; the next step would be to take legal action. 

Legal action can involve obtaining a court injunction or seeking assistance from the local council under the Local Government Miscellaneous Provisions Act 1976.

For legal matters, we strongly recommend consulting with a solicitor.
