Tree Safety and Condition Reports for Campsites, Residential Park Home Sites, Holiday Parks and Resorts, Hotels and Private Holiday Let Accommodation

Campsites, residential park home sites, holiday parks, holiday resorts, hotels and private holiday let accommodation often contain trees within their site which need need to be managed proactively and effectively in order to negate any risk of harm to property or users of the site such as residents, guests, visitors and staff.

Trees provide a wide range of ecological benefits such as those listed below. However, trees also come with certain risks, such as the potential for falling branches or entire trees, which can pose a threat to people and property. To balance the ecological benefits of trees with the risks they pose, it is important to take a comprehensive approach that considers both the benefits and risks.

What are the benefits of trees on our site?

Well-managed trees provide positive amenity and environmental value to your site and with proper care and management, they are a valuable asset:

  • Trees help ensure a resilience to climate change.
  • Tree canopies slow up rainfall and the root systems absorb moisture and so can help to reduce flash flooding.
  • Trees provide a sense of well-being through softening any urban developments.
  • Trees mark the changing seasons with spring flowers, summer foliage, autumn fruit and bare winter branches. 
  • Trees, in all stages of life, are an essential habitat for insects, birds, mammals, fungi and other plants.
  • As well as absorbing carbon dioxide and producing oxygen; trees filter, absorb and reduce pollutant gasses including ozone, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide.
  • Trees can provide welcome shade on site during the hot summer months.
  • Trees release scents and aromas which can result in positive emotional responses and add to the overall enjoyment of a site.

What safety issues should I consider?

Whilst balancing the benefits of trees, there are some safety issues to particularly be aware of such as any trees that:

  • risk falling onto the road, footways or pitches and buildings, including deadwood and broken branches.
  • obstruct road signs or street lighting.
  • hang low and prevent safe passage for vehicles, including high-sided vehicles and motorhomes.
  • prevent safe passage for residents, guests, pedestrians and cyclists on footways.
  • have damage, ill-health or disease.
  • are in conflict with neighbouring buildings.

Campsites and playgrounds in particular, can also suffer with issues such as soil compaction around trees which can affect their health and longevity.

We can provide advice on how to alleviate any issues and improve the health of trees on your property for long term retention and to help maintain the amenity and environmental value of these trees on your site.

Each site can vary greatly in tree cover and we recommend you contact us to discuss your requirements in further detail so that we can provide a quotation for an appropriate management plan and inspection frequency for your site.

We mainly cover the whole of the Southwest but are able to cover sites nationwide upon request.
