Arboricultural Impact Analysis

Arboricultural Impact Analysis (AIA) assesses the likely impact of your proposals upon existing trees, putting forward mitigation measures where necessary and demonstrating the practicality of the scheme.

This may involve additional investigation, non-destructive investigation of tree root activity for example using an Air Spade (excavation using a compressed air jet) or ground penetrating radar.

Local Authorities will always ask you for an Arboricultural Impact Assessment report to be submitted at the same time as a planning application if there are any trees close to an extension or proposed development.

Arboricultural Method Statements

Arboricultural Method Statements (AMS) showing in detail how retained trees will be successfully protected during the construction stage.

A Method Statement Report fully details what tree protection measures are needed for all stages of your development, using current best practice and requirements of BS5837 Trees in Relation to Construction - recommendations. The council should approve any Method Statement prior to any work commencing on site.

I concentrate on measures that are low cost and simple for contractors to understand and carry out.

Arboricultural Supervision

Arboricultural supervision is sometimes necessary to ensure compliance with the planning conditions attached to your consent and with the provisions of the Arboricultural Method Statement (AMS).

The 2005 amendments to BS5837: Trees in relation to construction – Recommendations; have put a greater emphasis on tree management and retention throughout the construction process.

Local Planning Authorities (LPAs) are becoming more vigilant when it comes to construction site tree management and this is reflected in an increase in planning conditions relating to trees on many sites.
