In most cases, it is obvious whether a tree is decayed or not, but sometimes the extent of decay needs to be quantified (for example, some councils require technical evidence when applying to remove a protected tree).
We use a tool called a resistograph to determine the significance and extent of decay in trees.
An example of a typical resistograph readout is shown below:

Here's what some of my customers have to say about my services
What a fantastic service Trevor provided. I emailed late on Thursday night requiring an urgent report in order to validate our mortgage offer and Trevor replied and set up a time that evening. He arrived promptly and sent the comprehensive report that evening. What an impressive service. I will definitely be using his service again and could not recommend him highly enough.
Trevor was very accommodating and efficient. Appointment was booked in immediately and report produced without delay. I would definitely recommend.
Trevor was really helpful in drafting a tree report for a mortgage valuation we required for a new property. He was able to attend the site within 24 h of request and deliver a report within 48 h! He also provided feedback on additional trees within the garden of the property which will help me in my objection to a potential planning application with the grounds of a neighbouring property. Trevor had a really nice approach and I was really pleased with the service provided.
Great service. I received a mortgage/insurance survey for risk of damage to buildings or services caused by trees/vegetation nearby. Email questions answered promptly before commissioning. Exceeded expectations on timing. Survey performed within 2 days of phoning, and report delivered the same day. Excellent.
Trevor was a life saver! He responded within 10 minutes of the enquiry and was very helpful. We had received a condition in our mortgage surrounding a tree which we wanted to get a report done on ASAP as we were due to exchange and complete within 10 days. Trevor offered to do the survey the next day even though it was a Saturday. He made what was a really stressful situation easy to cope with and got the report to us the same day. I don't hesitate to recommend him.
We had a last minute request from our bank for an arboriculturist report to secure the mortgage on our new home. I reached out to Trevor based on the great reviews he's had in the past and was not been disappointed. What a brilliant service and quick, reassuring process. From start to finish, it was a 48 hours process. Even prior to sending the final report, Trevor knew I was a bit nervous about it and after visiting the property sent an email to reassure me that everything seemed in order. Couldn't recommend more highly!
I was recommended to contact Mr Heaps by my uncle who had some work done by Mr Heap in Bournemouth, My problem was that a mortgage had been refused due to two trees being close to the house I intend to buy. The report from Mr Heap was so detailed and covered all the points of concern which the mortgage provider found to be very constructive and helpful. I am so grateful to Mr Heap for the excellent and reassuring report. We are now going ahead with our first house purchase.
I was really pleased with the service provided, the survey was detailed with clear instructions on future works. I received the survey back the same day so I could get it to the mortgage provider quickly which was greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend Trevor to anyone that needs a Arboricultural survey completed.
Fantastic, very prompt response! Trevor visited us in Surrey on a Friday lunchtime, within 2 days of the enquiry, I jokingly asked for the report by Monday, and received it Friday evening, the same day. Excellent service, very thorough, 100% satisfied. Thank you Trevor.
I used Trevor Heaps. Excellent service. Trevor responded to my enquiry within minutes and was able to do the survey the next day. He let us know straight away that there was nothing to worry about which really helped ease our minds and we got a full report to share with the mortgage company within 72 hours.
Trevor helped with an arboricultural survey as I was considering purchasing a property. He was friendly and professional. He responded to my request quickly and visited the property within a few days, and the turnaround of the detailed report was extremely fast too. The report was informative, had helpful advice regarding nearby trees and included a natural subsidence report. He also gave advice on follow up questions I had. Overall I would definitely recommend Trevor.
I needed a survey conducted fairly urgently to satisfy a mortgage offer. Trevor not only provided a thorough instant quote, he also brought forward the agreed site visit to the next day (a Saturday morning) as a consideration for the urgency of the quote. By first thing Monday morning I had a comprehensive report to provide my lender, which satisfied the conditions they'd placed, for a report on any potential issues with trees and vegetation near to the property. Highly recommended, a friendly and professional service.
I thoroughly recommend Trevor. The report satisfied both the pressing mortgage need and made me much better informed to avoid worry and problems in the years ahead. He was very responsive and produced the report very quickly. He is great value for money and a pleasure to do business with.
I used Trevor Heaps. He was excellent - able to complete the survey and report within a matter of days allowing us to make a quick decision about whether to proceed with the purchase of our property.
My lender requested a tree report and they wouldn't consider the mortgage application without this. I contacted various Arboricultural surveyors for this. Trevor was very prompt in responding, he sent me a sample report which the lender confirmed is acceptable. Trevor arranged a survey within 2 days and was very helpful during the day answering my various novice questions. I got the report back in 2 days and it was detailed. We are very happy with Trevor Heaps Arboricultural Consultancy Ltd services; they are very affordable as well. Would highly recommend and would definitely use them in future.5 Stars ...
I chose Trevor Heaps to do the tree specialist report for my mortgage. He was friendly and efficient and it was a pleasure to use his company. I would definitely recommend him to other people.
Trevor was in touch quickly to determine exactly what services were required to customise an exact service list and quote. He was flexible on timing for visits, provided a fast turnaround on request and the quickly produced a report meeting the needs of the Building Society - which achieved the positive result I was looking for. Trevor also gave long term advice for the maintenance of the trees identified for the report. My garden is part of protected woodlands, so will use again when time comes for next tree work application to the local authority.
Trevor was excellent – incredibly fast response, survey done within 24 hours, managed all the communication with the estate agent, provided a detailed report, good communication throughout, price-matched a lower quote given, and he has offered to assist further if the mortgage lender requires it. I couldn’t ask for better service.
I needed a tree report done quickly and, although due to go on holiday, Trevor found time to do the survey and promptly sent me the report. This was thorough, detailed and easy to understand.
