Tree Expert Witness services in Knutsford

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.

Tatton Park
Tatton Park is a historic estate in Cheshire, north of Knutsford. It contains a mansion, Tatton Hall, a manor house dating from medieval times, Tatton Old Hall, gardens, a farm and 2,000 acres of land, where deer roam. It is a popular visitor attraction and hosts over 100 events annually. The estate is owned by the National Trust, who administer it jointly with Cheshire East Council. Since 1999 it has hosted an annual horticultural show, the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show.
1,000 out of the 2,000 acres of land are open to the public. In the park are two meres; Tatton Mere, is natural but the other, Melchett Mere, is the consequence of subsidence in the 1920s; in fact, mature trees can bee seen leaning towards the mere where the ground beneath them has subsided. The meres are Sites of Special Scientific Interest and Ramsar sites.
Cheshire Woodlands has been involed in the surveying of trees and woodland at Tatton Park on behalf of Cheshire East Council.
