To adequately assess the condition of a tree, it may be necessary to perform an aerial tree inspection. A defect on a tree may be positioned in an area not visible from ground level or is too high up to accurately assess its likely implication. This is often the case with trees that are tall, ivy covered or with dense crowns.

The arboricultural consultants at Treetec are NPTC qualified to perform aerial tree inspections using a rope and harness, as well as possessing mobile elevated work platform (MEWP) training to allow inspection of trees that are too difficult or potentially dangerous to climb.

Aerial inspections help create a fuller picture of the tree’s structural stability, and also allow for cost effective potential bat roost investigations using endoscopes.
