Trees can be sources of conflict, occasionally leading to arbitration or litigation and in our experience, legal cases involving trees are on the increase.

Cheshire Woodlands offers a comprehensive expert witness service, employing qualified and experienced consultants to represent clients’ interests in all aspects of arboriculture, from the initial instruction and case assessment, through to completion.

We have a long history of presenting written and oral evidence to tribunals, hearings, inquiries and in the civil and criminal courts, both as independent and single joint expert witnesses in the following areas:

  • Tree failure risk assessment

  • All aspects of planning

  • Neighbour/boundary disputes

  • Subsidence litigation

  • Tree valuation

  • Tree related personal injury claims 

Our tree experts are fully conversant with the requirements of the Civil Procedure Rules and the professional, ethical and procedural duties placed on the expert and we pride ourselves both on the quality of our written proofs and statements and the calibre of our oral evidence.

We place great emphasis on training and continuing professional development and you can be confident that our consultants’ opinions will be informed by current legislative provisions, guidance, research and legal precedents.

About Frodsham

Frodsham is a market town and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. Its population is 8,982. It is approximately 16 miles south of Liverpool

The parish, like most in Cheshire, is underlain by a suite of sedimentary rocks dating from the Triassic Period. They comprise the Lower Triassic age Kinnerton Sandstone, Chester Pebble Beds and Wilmslow Sandstone Formations together with the upper Triassic age Helsby Sandstone, Tarporley Siltstone and Sidmouth Mudstone Formations. Those formations up to and including the Helsby Sandstone Formation are assigned to the Sherwood Sandstone Group. It is this formation whose relatively hard-wearing sandstones form the higher ground of Beacon Hill, Woodhouse Hill and Harrol Edge. The younger siltstones and mudstones are assigned to the Mercia Mudstone Group.[7] The sequence of sandstones is exposed in a railway cutting and two road cuttings, which are designated as an earth sciences Site of Special Scientific Interest
