Hi Bri
 
Until recently I have been surveying council owned trees using Arbortrack
for a district council. We adopted the following procedures: 
 
Walk the survey area, digitize trees, record condition, collect individual
data & Species, record work identified,
 
Trees in Council gardens: 
If the tenant is not home and the tree is in the back garden:
 
1: Can you view the tree adequately from a neighboring garden?
 
2: If no to 1 above, we would write to the tenant and advise of what we are
doing, including a leaflet that we had produced prior to starting the survey
work, to inform individuals of the councils tree survey program. It is not
always possible for the tenant to be home during office hours and the letter
would also ask if it is possible to gain access in the absence of the
tenant.
 
I often found that only as low as 5-10% of a survey area required letters to
be sent, in order to gain access and the tenants often telephoned us to give
permission to view the trees in their absence.
 
I hope that this helps 
 
Regards

Have any of our members carried out a survey of trees in Housing gardens ?
How did you inform the residents about what was happening and what did you
do if the tenants weren`t in and you couldn`t get access ?
 
Any thoughts gratefully received
 
thanx
