Tree survey for condition & management purposes
A full inventory was made, which included 1099 individual trees recorded across 22 sites, comprising predominantly areas of public open space, cemeteries, allotments and recreational areas. Several areas of woodland were also surveyed.
The tree data, which included details regarding their condition and management requirements, was recorded and stored using specialist tree management software ‘MyTrees’, a Geographical Information System (GIS). On completion of each survey, tree work schedules and tree location plans were produced to assist in the contract management phase of the project. The bespoke schedules and plans were designed to meet the specific requirements of the client. The layout and information included within them is intended to facilitate contractors in the process of tendering for and completing any necessary works.
As with all tree risk management, the project is ongoing. Each tree has a re-inspection interval which is dependant upon it’s size, condition and target i.e. what would be harmed or damaged if it were to fail.
Thirty-seven ash trees (excluding those within woodlands) were recorded on land managed by the Town Council. The potential is great for these trees to be affected by ash die-back disease (Hymensocyphus fraxinea). Consequently, annual monitoring is scheduled to inform future management decisions.
