Tree Surveys or Arboricultural reports

Completing a tree survey early in the process can prevent inappropriate tree retention and allow the site to be designed to retain the most valuable specimens and prevent conflict of trees with the new development. Tree surveys are the first step in the arboricultural process.

 
Tree Surveys or Arboricultural reports are written to support our clients on the best management decisions.

 All our tree surveys are completed in accordance with British Standard 5837 (2012) ‘Trees in Relation to Design, Demolition & Construction – Recommendations’.

Tree Surveys

On a development site, a tree survey  is carried out to inform the design of a scheme with specific guidance on:

  • Identifying the most valuable specimens early in the process to design in retention
  • Preventing conflict of trees with the new development.
  • Appropriate tree retention.
  • Supporting the planning application process to prevent costly redesigns later in the scheme

Arboricultural reports and plans include:

  • Tree Constraints Plans
  • Arboricultural Implications Assessments/ Arboricultural Impact Assessments
  • Arboricultural Method Statements/ Arboricultural Development Statements
  • Tree Protection Plans
