Tree Expert Witness services in Wallasey

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 Wallasey

Wallasey is a town in Wirral, Merseyside and has a population of 58,710 (according to the 2001 census).

Historically part of Cheshire, the area was sparsely populated before the 19th century. Horse races organised for the Earls of Derby on the sands at Leasowe in the 16th and 17th centuries are regarded as forerunners of the modern Derby.

Old maps show that the main centre and parish church (St Hilary’s) were located at what is now called Wallasey Village, and there were smaller hamlets at Liscard, Poulton and Seacombe, from where there were occasional ferries across the Mersey. There was also a mill (at Mill Lane), and from the mid-18th century a gunpowder store or magazine at Rock Point, located well away from the built-up areas.
