Dr Giles Biddle undertakes a wide range of arboricultural consultancy work. However, as he is in considerable demand and is trying to reduce his commitments as he nears retirement, there are practical limits to the amount of work which can be accepted. Priority is normally given to the following topics:

  Desktop studies of evidence alleging involvement of trees as cause of subsidence damage.
  Advice on tree management where involvement of trees in subsidence damage is suspected, particularly where:
  Level monitoring records are being obtained.
  Multiple trees involved.
  Concerns about relevance of heave.
  Resolution of TPO problems.
  Subsidence investigations where trees are suspected and tree management is the preferred remedial option (if feasible).
  Instructions as Single Joint Expert in cases of tree root damage.
  Instructions as Expert Witness for either claimant or defendant, in cases of tree root damage.
  Tree Preservation Orders.
  Compensation claims
  High Court challenges
  Reports on trees involved in accidents, where pathological expertise is relevant.

Before writing with instructions, it is usually helpful to telephone Dr Biddle (07966 503162) to discuss your requirements and his availability, and for an estimate of fees.
