Why get an Arborist Report?

Arborist Reports are useful for many reasons, including:

  • For local council Development Applications 
  • For your property or a recently purchased property with existing garden, large or small or maybe a garden protected by a heritage listing. All trees and plantings can be catalogued and the Arborist Report will form part of your new Landscape Plan
  • For dispute resolution advantages

With an Arborist Report, you can plan according to your budget attending to any urgent works immediately and schedule further work on a managed basis. This is particularly useful for a larger private garden, corporate or public facility.

An Arborist Report will provide a legal document evidencing your informed approach to your asset management which can therefore assist to mitigate the legal liability associated with the trees and other vegetation on your property.
