Arboricultural Liability

QuestGates Arboricultural Liability Unit (ALU) provides highly specialised services relating to all forms of liability claim that involve structural damage to third party property and financial loss, caused by trees and other vegetation growing on a client’s or policyholder’s own land.  The range of services include:

  • Assessment of legal liability for loss/damage

  • Consideration of policy coverage

  • Assessment of nature & extent of damage and repair costs

  • Loss mitigation and vegetation management advice

  • Claims for diminution of market value due to encroachment of Japanese Knotweed

These claims can be very emotive, often involving neighbour disputes and so require a special level of empathy and careful handling.  Accordingly, the ALU work uniquely with policyholders, third-party claimants, local authorities and other arboricultural experts, to assess causation and quantum whilst working wherever possible to reach an amicable solution that satisfies all parties, keeps costs down and which protects and preserves valued trees for the greater good of the environment.
