Wharton Tree & Ecology Consultants provide independent, impartial tree management advice to ensure that employers, property owners and professionals optimise their value and benefits, alongside clear management, compliance and financial strategies.
We take great pride in providing practical and innovative solutions that ensure councils retain viable trees and developers optimise their investment. We know that your time is your money, and in each project we undertake, we focus on delivering the right information to the right people, as quickly as possible.
Our pragmatic approach focuses on trees as assets rather than development constraints, producing clear and considered design solutions. Care must always be exercised over misplaced tree preservation.
Trees are dynamic structures, constantly growing and changing to adapt to environmental conditions. Therefore it is critical that tree owners and managers take appropriate action to maintain their safety.
It is recognised that well positioned trees around a property, as well as providing amenity, add significantly to its value. However, in certain soil conditions badly positioned or poorly maintained trees can increase the risk of soil shrinkage leading to structural damage to the property due to subsidence.
Through experience both within the public and private sectors our consultants are able to provide expert advice in relation to a wide range of tree related legal matters in order to provide a balanced view.
Managers and land owners have a ‘Duty of Care’ to take responsibility under the Occupiers Liability Acts 1957 and 1984, to ensure that trees situated on their land remain in a safe condition as far as it is reasonably practicable.
