 Decay in trees

  • Caused by various parasitic fungi.
  • The fungi can cause considerable structural damage affecting both stem, root system and branches.
  • Decay in trees is not always easy to detect.
  • By law the tree owner has a duty of care to the public.
  • Trees should be maintained in a safe condition, and hazardous trees removed.

For advice, contact an experienced, competent and qualified arborist.

If your tree/trees are protected by a tree preservation order or are in a conservation area, you will need permission from your local planning office to carry out any work.
