Managing trees for safety

Caring about the health and condition of your trees is part of tree safety management. Most people already do this, without realising it. General pruning helps young trees to reach maturity and reduce the likelihood of future problems.

There is an especially strong case for a balanced approach in managing trees for safety. as trees grow, it is natural for them to drop branches. this requires a simple management approach. the HSE supports sensible risk management as part of any overall tree management.
