This is one of our newer clients having only been involved with the site since January 2019.
We were contacted to undertake visual tree assessments of a number of trees within the RopeWorx area of the site, where mature trees are used to support the adventure equipment. This involved an initial visual tree assessment. During this process a number of trees were observed to have suspected positive external indicators of decay.
Following the completion of this process a number of the trees were recommended to have internal decay testing undertaken. This was completed and all trees tested only had localised non-significant areas of decay. As such all trees inspected and tested can be safely retained and we are regularly undertaking our annual re-inspection and monitoring of trees previously inspected. In the short to medium term we are hoping to repeat this process for the other high use areas within the forest park site.
