Of all garden and outdoor areas, there is no place where safety is of more paramount importance than a school playground. Whether you are responsible for a nursery school or primary school, where small children run and play in the schoolyard, or a high school where students take well-earned breaks out of doors, you must ensure that these outdoor areas are free of all possible hazards as you take responsibility for your charges’ welfare.
Trees are important features of any schoolyard. They provide shade to shelter beneath on summer days, and they can become part of a school’s playground equipment, supporting swings or tree-houses. The changing seasonal phases of leaves, as well as the presence of many different species of birds, can even provide important learning experiences for children. But these trees must be constantly assessed for their safety and stability, and any flaws such as weak branches that could break off and injure someone dealt with speedily.
If an entire tree is unstable or poses any possibility of danger, the problem must be tackled urgently. A tree damaged by lightning or which has a shallow or unstable root system could fall in a high wind or violent storm, damaging school buildings which would necessitate costly repairs that could also inconvenience and disrupt school routines. Even more seriously, a falling tree could severely injure anyone standing near it at the time.
