ACD has recently been working with parish councils to ensure that they meet their duty of care to users of their land from a tree perspective. This included conducting health and safety tree surveys for parish councils, parks, and cemeteries to ensure the trees are in a safe condition and not going to cause damage to persons and property. ACD worked with Horndean Parish Council to produce a tree safety strategy, which broke the parish down into different areas depending on their usage. This project has been running successfully for 9 years with different areas being inspected each year on a cyclical basis. Our arboricultural team are qualified tree inspectors with experience of conducting health and safety surveys over many years.
