Feb. 6, 2011 - PRLog -- The windy weather is playing havoc with the North West’s stock of trees. Chester Arborist Richard Fagan (http://www.chestertreesurgery.co.uk) is being kept busy clearing fallen trees from around the region.
“Many trees that fall have already been identified as being at risk”, he says. “However, sometimes even seemingly sturdy trees can succumb to the strong winds”.
“We encourage conservation not destruction. We would prefer to see top-heavy trees trimmed and shaped rather than fall victims to the weather. Intervening early can save greenhouses, hedges, outhouses and even peoples’ lives. We cover Chester, Wirral and the Borders and in the last few days we have been called out to fallen trees right across the region. One destroyed an extension and a patio. Luckily no-one got hurt”, says Richard.
“Clearly it is not always easy to predict which trees will fall. Sometimes your insurance will not cover the clean-up and removal of a tree but may cover the repair of patios, greenhouses and fences,” says Richard.
Solicitor James Mather of Berkson Wallace says “If a tree falling is reasonably foreseeable then the owner could be liable for any consequential damage, for instance, if it injures someone or damages property”.
“The best answer”, says Richard “is to take action early. If the area surrounding your tree is littered with debris after strong winds then it probably needs attention”.
“Cleary we would prefer to see healthy trees live out their lives. However, if a tree dies then it clearly needs to be cleared away. Trees are our inheritance: if we lose one then we need to plant another one to take its place.  Our commitment is to plant a new tree for every one we take away, FREE. We will plant the right tree in the right place, to help enhance the region’s quality of life and encourage biodiversity. “
