Project Brief:

To undertake a tree condition survey to ensure the safety of competitors and members of the public during the event.

Cornbury Horse Trials is held within the historic grounds of Cornbury Park. Our previous involvement with Wilderness Festival provided reassurance to the project team that we were not only familiar with the course but also the status and condition of trees throughout the park. Similarly to the Festival, achieving a suitable balance between managing the environmental asset of ancient and veteran trees and the safety of those at the event was paramount.

Our alternative solutions for reducing the level of risk to spectators was to divert footfall away from trees. Our solution of last resort was to propose tree works.
