Tree Survey

Tree Survey

Tree Survey

agb Environmental has a dedicated team of arboricultural specialists that can undertake all aspects of arboriculture surveys and assessments to secure legal and planning obligations for clients. These include tree surveys, arboricultural implications assessments, arboriculture surveys and visual tree inspections.

A tree survey may be needed if trees on a site constrain proposed development. Nearby trees may also be need to be protected when construction begins to ensure no damage to the natural environment incurs, a tree survey will outline ways to do this safely. The tree survey points out certain hazards that could harm your development in the long term, such as potential tree or branch falls due to fungal decay.

Our tree surveys look to identify ways to protect the resource, whilst offering a decision that will enable the outcome to have minimal impact on the project. The tree surveys include tree dimension, condition (both physiological & structural), age class, root protection area for construction purposes and preliminary recommendations. Working to the British Standard BS5837, agb Environmental’s tree surveys will also determine any protected species.

agb Environmental recommend a full tree survey to be carried out prior to the first site layout so that the outcome of the tree survey can be incorporated into the development plans. Tree surveys are often needed to acquire planning consent from LPAs and our fully qualified team has experience working with regulatory bodies to see your application through to validation.
