Tree Officer Outsourcing

Local authorities need accurate data on street trees to manage their stock safely and effectively. In order to maintain a safe tree stock close to people and property and to manage trees effectively, local authorities, public bodies and other major landowners need accurate and accessible tree data.

Local Government Services

Wharton has considerable experience in the delivery of large scale tree surveys for local authorities, universities, health authorities, housing association and other clients. Our surveys can be tailored to suit your requirements and can focus on general tree health and condition, tree safety, threat to property (e.g. street trees and subsidence risk), risk assessments of hazard trees (on any scale) or a combination of these.

The services which we currently assist local authorities with are listed below:

  • Tree surveys and management
  • Preparation of tree strategies and policy
  • Tree/arboricultural office locum (temporary or permanent)
  • TPO application and S211 notification services
