Tree Risk Management Strategy

Find out how we approach tree safety management in Torbay.

We are responsible for trees located on land for which we manage or have total control over. This may either be in the capacity of owner or manager. We have a common law and statutory duty of care in relation to the trees. To comply, we need the operation of a reasonable systematic inspection of all trees. A sufficient and informed risk assessment must be in place.

This document sets out the minimum standards of:

  • inspection
  • competence
  • record keeping

We will commit to these in accordance with the industry guideline document.

Please note, we are currently reviewing this strategy.
