Tree register

Tree population - legal and traffic security

Hansa Luftbild has developed a tree register system especially for the administration, organization, care, and documentation of tree populations. The system implements all the relevant processes simply, efficiently and in a legally compliant manner.

According to German law every property owner is responsible for ensuring that their property does not endanger the lives of others. In this case maturing trees must be taken into account and it should be ensured that they present no danger to traffic. If damage does occur the property owner must prove that this could not be foreseen and was not caused by negligence. The damage to one’s image, however remains and has a lasting effect. It would be better if the damage never occurred.

Proof of no negligence can be demonstrated by a property owner through audit-compliant, documented monitoring, expert opinion and roof that all proper property responsibilities have been met.

Hansa Luftbild is a member of the BTÜB e.V. (Biological Technical Tree Survey Association) and can provide you with suitable technical and organizational support as well as personnel and expertise. We can provide expert assistance to road and property authorities in establishing legally required measures for traffic safety and/or support the continued monitoring of these measures.

We can also draw up tree maintenance and development concepts for our clients. In addition we can submit applications for felling trees, investigate the relevant procedures, prepare specifications and organise tendering, contracting and invoicing. So with the assistance of tree management software, tree population information systems and mobile solutions we can help you to efficiently manage the mass of available data to be found in geodata portals such as WebGIS. You have one system - we deliver the optimum solution. You need one system - we advise on the options.

The integration of tree registers with other specialised cadastres such as street or green space cadastre also forms part of our usual undertakings.
