Do you have trees on your site and want to know more about the tree laws that could affect you? It’s important that anyone who owns premises that have trees understands their responsibilities before any injuries or instances occur. The Occupiers Liability Act 1984 means that the owner of the premises are usually liable for any loss or damage that results from either a tree falling or branches falling down. Therefore, occupiers must take steps in order to manage or reduce the risks. Get in touch with one of our experts about tree laws and tree risk management further.
