Dangerous trees

Worried about a tree that is not on your property? Dangerous trees can be removed under section 23 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 at the discretion of the Local Authority, the costs of which can be recovered from the landowner. This is often considered a last resort; it is advised that the concerned party makes contact with the landowner in the first instance. A tree report from an approved arboriculturist can help justify your concerns. If you do not know the landowner’s details? That is fine, we can conduct a land registry search, it is all part of the service we offer our clients.


Tree ownership (The legal bit)

Did you know that the occupier of the land on which a tree stands is normally liable for any harm or injury if the tree or part it fails? The Occupiers Liability Act 1984 places a duty of care on the occupier to take reasonable care to avoid acts or omissions which he or she could reasonably foresee may result in harm or injury. If this is news to you, then you may wish to seek the advice of an Arboriculturalist. Unfortunately, negligence is no longer excusable! If you want to find out more about this, and the other services Beechenlea offer our clients, please do not hesitate to contact us
