Inspecting steep slopes (cliffs) on your own land
Slopes are at risk of collapsing suddenly even if there is no rainfall due to weathering. In light of the above accident, the government has provided landowners with points to consider when conducting self-inspections of slopes.
If any of the following phenomena are observed, the slope may be unstable due to weathering and requires attention. (Special attention should be paid to areas with poor vegetation, which is more prone to weathering.)

If you see any of the above phenomena during the inspection, please contact us as a precaution.
