About this book

Most woodland managers have responsibility for land that is accessible to the public or that is adjacent to public rights-of-way. Many are involved in the management of woodland sites for recreation, amenity and conservation and in some cases, their responsibilities extend to buildings and urban sites. While trees have many values – social, environmental and economic – they may, if suffering from certain mechanical defects, represent a hazard in areas where people and property are present. It is therefore important for managers to be aware of tree-related hazards.

This Practice Guide indicates the responsibilities of owners and managers for assessing the risk of hazards from trees, and considers what inspection procedures might be appropriate. Preventive care of young trees and methods of protecting trees from wildlife damage are described. Details of tree hazards, signs of their occurrence, and options for remedial work are presented.
