Data collected will include tree number, species, height, mean crown spread, stem diameter, age class, condition, recommendations for work and priority, adjacent features and hazard rating. Recommendations for an appropriate re-inspection period would also be made.
Melton said trees vary in age and species and some may require prompt remedial work. The trees may be on open public spaces, churchyards and other small parcels of land.
The contract is worth £150,000 over three years with a possible extension of a further two years in total.
