Tree Report Essex: Planning and Development

A tree report for planning and development is a document that provides information about the trees located on a site that is being considered for development. The report typically includes a survey of the trees, which may involve measuring and recording information such as the species, size, and condition of each tree. The report may also highlight tree problems and provide recommendations for how the trees should be managed or protected during the development process.

Tree surveys and reports are often required by local planning authorities as part of the planning process. The purpose of arboricultural surveys and reports is to help ensure that the trees on a site are properly considered in the development process and that any impacts on the trees are minimised or mitigated as much as possible.

Tree reports for planning are necessary as retained trees are protected under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990 and the Town and Country Planning Act 1990. This protection is typically in the form of conservation areas, root protection areas or they can be protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO).

The report may also be used to help identify opportunities for preserving or enhancing the trees and their ecological value, such as through the incorporation of green spaces or the planting of new trees.
