Does your site contain any trees or woodland? Do they impose a constraint on what you're trying to achieve? We can provide an overview of tree issues within the site to inform and identify potential construction constraints at an early stage.
Pre-planning and design stage
We conduct surveys with fully detailed constraints plans for use in detailed design and layout stages prior to submission to the Local Planning Authority.
Planning submission stage
By undertaking an Arboricultural Impact Assessment, we can provide an overview of the proposed development impacts on the trees and the processes required to retain them during construction; including removal, protection and planting plans.
We tender and supervise tree work contracts prior to development and throughout the development process. This includes: negotiating with amended tree protection issues for the developer, tree safety and hazard assessment reports, and site inspections.
Post-construction support and advice
After building work is completed, we supervise tree contracts and manage the associated hazards, including: regular tree stock assessments and condition reports, and assisting landowners with their Health and Safety liabilities.
Appeals and enquiries
Collaborating with clients across public and private sectors, we provide services to allow appeals against planning decisions or legal disputes on tree issues, including: Expert Witness Reports, and appearing in court at Planning hearings.
Understanding the history, structure and influences on a woodland is fundamental in developing a comprehensive understanding of tree management. Our experienced Arboricultural team can help your project across every stage of the development life-cycle, striving to protect important habitats whilst maximising the potential of woodland resources.
