Are you worried about one of the trees in your garden?

The Blue Tree Company are highly experienced arborists with a proven track record of meeting the demands of the commercial sector. Their arborists and consultants maintain and advise clients from a number of diverse sectors including NHS, Police, Schools and Universities, Facilities Management, Construction, Local Authority and Insurance.

Their teams hold industry specific qualifications to allow them to work on all types of site and to ensure that they are compliant with all current health & safety legislations and best practice. To maintain these standards they are audited annually by the Arboricultural Association and an independent ISO certification body.  Their teams hold CSCS accreditation and are DBS checked. 

The Blue Tree Company have a proven track record of building long term relationships with their clients.  They are proud to be a business small enough that you can be assured of their best attention at all times, yet large enough to be ready to provide all supporting processes you require to meet your business needs, such as method statements (RAMS) and Local Authority Tree Preservation Orders (TPO) and Conservation Area applications. To ensure they meet your business needs, their teams are able to provide flexibility.

Consultancy Services

The Blue Tree Company provide a wide range of reports to meet your requirements.

It is important to understand what is required from a tree report; and their consultants will discuss your needs and provide a scope of works based on your instructions. Complex reports are delivered by their associate consultant who is both a Chartered Arboriculturalist and Registered Consultant.

The Blue Tree Company’s Arboricultural Consultancy Services include:

  • Tree safety and condition surveys - these can flag up issues early on, so that action can be taken before any incidents occur. Getting a formal inspection by a qualified arboricultural professional can bring any potential hazards to light.

  • Mortgage reports - if a property has a large tree or a number of trees, a mortgage lender can request a mortgage report. This will consider factors such as potential damage, water usage and soil plasticity as well as an overview of the general condition of the trees.

  • Construction Planning services and supervision (BS5837:2012 Trees in relation to Construction) - These surveys are essential for the success of any new planning application where trees are present. They will include arboricultural impact assessments, tree protection plans and tree constraints plans for new build properties.

  • Subsidence investigation - this will help determine if there is any potential threat of subsidence or heave damage to properties specifically due to trees.

  • Decay detection - using either sonic tomography or a resistograph, their consultants are able to determine the extent of sound wood in a selected section of tree. This allows them to make evidence based management decisions on your trees.

  • Advice on statute and common law in relation to trees - when you’re applying for planning permission, you may need to consider factors such as Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) or Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).


Whether you are a homeowner or business, public sector or local authority, The Blue Tree Company are skilled to offer their professional advice and happy to provide a no obligation quote to maintain your trees.
