Tree Surveys

Our polite, professional ecology team provide tree plans needed to support planning applications. Our aim is to minimise the detrimental impact of building projects on trees and the wider environment. Where possible, we make recommendations on how your site can be further improved to support greater biodiversity, whilst enhancing the likelihood of achieving planning consent. 

 Our tree plans and reports can include:

  • BS5837 Tree Survey and Tree Constraints Plan – required for most planning applications 
  • Tree Impact Assessment – which trees should be retained/removed.
  • Tree Protection Plan/Method Statement – preserving the health of important trees during a build.
  • Supervision/Site monitoring – overseeing tree work on important trees, supervising groundwork around tree root protection areas.
  • Mortgage Tree Report – sometimes required by insurance and mortgage companies.
  • Tree Hazard Assessment – examining structural and physiological health.
  • Tree planting advice, appropriate species selection and landscape enhancement including Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG).

We know how your local planning authority works, which documentation they require and when.

Our plans are issued in AutoCAD and PDF formats and can be used in conjunction with other architectural/design drawings.
