Tree Constraints Plans

Tree Constraint Plans consists of essential information sourced from a Topographical Survey combined with a precise BS 5837:2012 Tree Survey.

All trees with a stem diameter greater than 75mm (measured at 1.5 metres above the ground) should be listed as well as smaller trees of particular interest or value.

Tree Impact Assessments

As 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.

Fencing is put into place before any construction, site clearance or demolition begins and should remain in place until all construction and subsequent hard and soft landscaping has finished.
