Trees are an important part of our lives as they help to enhance and enrich the environments in which we live. As the demand for new housing increases, so does the pressure on established trees. Trees are a material consideration as part of any development scheme, and Local Authorities are bound by legislation to ensure adequate provision is made by the developer, to retain them where possible as well as making every effort to protect them.
The Arboricultural Consultant plays an important role in assessing these impacts and providing guidance and solutions to the constraints that trees pose to a development scheme.
Local Authorities may request detailed information to demonstrate the viability of a proposed development. I can assist with providing this information by offering:

Trees are dynamic structures that adapt to the environment in which they grow. Although it is difficult to wholly predict the safety of a tree, it is possible to utilise proven surveying techniques to provide guidance on the overall structural and physiological condition of a tree. This can then help prescribe appropriate tree management.

Trees can survive for many centuries. As they outlive us, we are just custodians to the natural heritage they provide.
