Inspection

Inspection of trees should be undertaken annually, September or early October is the time when fresh fungal fruit bodies are most likely to be present and, in most tree species, crown symptoms will not have been obscured by autumn colouration and leaf fall. Mid summer is the time to assess leaf size and general vigor of the tree. An immediate inspection should be made if it is suspected that the tree is dangerous.

An aerial inspection may be required to assess the risk to people and property. Crown has the expertise and experience to assess a tree, help diagnose problems with conditions around a tree, structural defects and decay.

Fungi can be a great indicator of a tree in decline with ill health, once identified the right steps can be taken to save the tree or worst-case scenario the felling if in high-risk area. We do also have a great interest in fungi as we think they are such beautiful things.
