Tree Condition Survey in Letchworth
In February 2016 a full safety and condition survey of the school was carried out with each tree gaining an individual tag and plotted onto a map. Using the same Forbes-Laird THREAT analysis as at The Knights Templar School, the trees were put into risk categories from emergency through to re-assess in two years’ time.
The tree work was carried out for everything recommended within one year. With an annual survey costs for tree work are predictable, and remedial work may be identified to deal with issues before they become expensive problems.
