Arboricultural Impact Survey for Property Developers and Construction Sites

Arboricultural Impact Analysis - AIS - for Trees on Construction Sites

Impact Reports and Surveys are also called Impact Assessments, Impact Analysis, Impact Appraisals, Pre-Development and Pre-Purchase Reports.

The purpose of an Arboricultural Impact Survey (AIS) is to examine how a development project interacts with the trees on and adjacent to the property. The AIS takes into account what will happen during construction, as well as the what will happen when the project is finished and being used for it's intended purpose.

Construction Site PlansAs part of the planning application, many Local Planning Authorities now require an Arboricultural Impact Survey. Property Developers need to ensure that such factors as root protection, services installation both above and below ground, storage of materials onsite, etc have all been addressed before planning permission will be granted. LPA's will also want to know that future issues have been addressed, such as tree shading around the development and change in moisture content of the soil due to the development.

Impact Assessments will include the following

  • Tree root protection
  • Changes in levels and surfaces
  • Diversion of natural waterways
  • Services layout below and above ground
  • Demolition and site clearance
  • Sunlight, shading & exposure due to tree removal
  • Construction site access and layout
  • Storage of materials
  • Leaf drop and fruit production may cause footpath hazards
