  • Tree Safety Surveys and Tree Owners Liability Owners of trees have a legal responsibility to ensure that their trees are in a safe condition.  This is of paramount importance especially if the trees in question overhang a neighbouring property, a highway or public right of way, in order to limit the risk of damage or injury caused to a member of the public or their property. If you wish to instruct someone to carry out an inspection on your trees you need to ensure that the person inspecting those trees can demonstrate that they have sufficient knowledge to do so.
