Tree Protection

agb Environmental’s skilled arboriculture specialists can create a tree protection plan alongside our detailed surveys and assessments. Negotiating with key stakeholders, such as the Local Authority and Natural England, we ensure the tree protection plan satisfies the needs of all regulatory bodies and you, as the developer.

LPAs often require tree surveys and assessments before planning permission is agreed to, and this can include a tree protection plan. Our aim is to protect the resource whilst enabling a minimal amount of disruption occurs to your development.

A tree protection plan outlines which trees on the site are to be removed and retained, as well as the number and condition category. The tree protection plan also aims to distinguish where protection fencing should be situated to make sure there is no damage to the tree roots. These PRZs must be considered in the tree protection plan to alert workers that these areas are off limits for storing heavy equipment or building materials.

Able to provide your project team with all the information they need to secure planning, our tree protection plans also alerts the team to hazards that could arise in the long term for your development.

Bringing a wealth of knowledge to your development, agb Environmental’s arboricultural specialists will complete a thorough inspection, including tree surveys, arboricultural implications assessments, arboriculture method statements, as well as a tree protection plan.

The use of asbestos in construction and other common place materials was not totally banned in the UK until 1999. Before the message about the risks posed by asbestos really penetrated the construction industry, there were many examples of refurbishment and demolition activities that resulted in asbestos being left on site and in the ground.


Christmas Tree Choice – Is It Beginning To Needle You?

agb Environmental’s Principal Arboricultural Consultant, Richard Parmee, discusses the origins of Christmas trees in the UK and the wide range of different tree species available. Choosing the right tree may be confusing with so many considerations: what makes one better than another; is it best to buy with roots; should it be grown in a pot; what should you do with it after Christmas; and is it better to buy an artificial tree instead?
