Where there are trees on a potential development site, as part of planning process the Local Authority will require a comprehensive tree survey to assess them. When used in a timely manner these tree surveys will provide guidance to the designers. Using the information within the Tree Schedule and Tree Constraints Plan (TCP) any tree related issues will be put into context in the Arboricultural Implications Assessment (AIA) for the various design options. The finalized design will require a Tree Protection Plan (TPP) and an Arboricultural Method Statement (AMS) that could include details of pre-development tree work, timing and phasing of operations, compliance with Construction Exclusion Zones (CEZs), installation of services, any work required in CEZs and landscaping mitigation and Arboriculture supervision. We have worked on large and small tree surveys for development projects that conform to the British Standard BS5837 :2012. These tree surveys help you to understand your tree resource and help the design team to use the appropriate trees within a development project. Where possible we look to retain trees to add significantly to any development but this depends on the appropriate assessment. We use AutoCAD and can produce CAD plans to your requirements that detail the tree No., tree species, tree height and the root protection areas etc.
