The Adelaide Tree Surgery’s consultancy team can survey, audit and prepare tree reports to help you manage your trees.
One of our other specialties is planting trees and offering advice on water management techniques to ensure each tree gets its best start in life.
Our qualified staff at The Adelaide Tree Surgery regularly assist customers with carrying out Tree Reports, Arboricultural Assessments and Tree Audits. This is important work and requires excellent, current Arboricultural knowledge and many years of field experience.
Arboricultural Assessment Reports
The Adelaide Tree Surgery consult to Paxtons Winery in McLaren Vale on an ongoing basis to assist them to manage this gorgeous Pinus pinea (Stone Pine).
The qualified arborists at The Adelaide Tree Surgery provide our clients with detailed tree reports /arboricultural assessments/tree audits – a valuable tool to assist in tree management, development and tree removal on various sites, both short and long term. A wide range of specifications are covered with detailed information documented on a variety of issues such as:
- General tree health and condition
- Structural integrity/stability of tree specimens
- Tree pests and/or diseases
- Impacts on surrounding infrastructure... and more.
These before and after shots of a veteran tree show how planned pruning can enhance the tree’s appearance and provide important wildlife habitat for years to come.
Tree reports are invaluable when caring for trees and can apply to both significant and non-significant specimens throughout the urban environment. Tree reports are an essential tool for compliance to, and management of, your DUTY OF CARE in relation to risks associated with your tree assets.
Reports in relation to Development & Construction
This service assists our customers to preserve existing trees on land to be developed by prescribing remedial action prior to development activity taking place.
Mature, sizeable trees on a site can add value, save time, and improve the “saleability” of your project.
Quality tree preservation and conservation is however often difficult to achieve on a development site where there are many competing interests. It has been shown that the best results are achieved when arborists are involved from the planning and discussion phase right through to the implementation stages and beyond, to the post construction “after care” stage.
Tree reports offer an invaluable tool when dealing with significant and non-significant specimens and often become pre-requisite for a proposed development approval. In addition, these reports can provide information on trees that may be required to become established post development/construction.
Tree Surveys and Audits
More commonly undertaken on a large scale, a tree survey/audit is an excellent way of implementing a long term management plan when dealing with large numbers of trees within a specific environment.

They can be utilised to provide information on a wide variety of issues such as:
- Number of trees
- Location of trees
- Species of tree
- General health and condition of trees
- Staus of trees i.e. significant/non-significant
- Identification of pests/diseases... just to start
A tree survey/audit can provide clients with information on any required tree work as well as prioritising work with a view to implementing a staged management plan.
Climbing inspections and assessments are often recommended for trees displaying potential defects that require closer inspection not achievable from the ground or for trees that are in particular high traffic locations. The Adelaide Tree Surgery can provide this service along with any written follow up material required.
Tree reports are commonly undertaken with a view to identifying hazards and risks, and by offering solutions via remedial tree maintenance operations, trees can often be retained whilst managing any associated risks to within acceptable levels.
Often, large seemingly hazardous tree specimens can be managed by qualified and experienced arborists without the need to remove the tree.
Air Spade Tree Root Investigations
The Adelaide Tree Surgery offer an innovative service to excavate soil from around tree roots without causing damage using a focussed supersonic jet of air to bare the roots without bruising or damage.
- Exposing roots on Development & Construction sites
- Installation of Root Barriers
- Radial Trenching
- Root Collar excavation
- Soil Compaction reduction
- Transplanting / Barerooting
This investigative tool is now commonly used by councils and developers to accurately assess the potential impacts of proposed development on existing established tree specimens.
It is also commonly used for the installation of tree root barriers, an operation undertaken to restrict tree root growth from unwanted areas and minimise the potential for structural damage as a result of tree root growth.
