Tree Survey Cumbria: Planning and Development
Tree Survey Cumbria
Tree surveys and reports will often be required for planning applications if a potential development site will be within close proximity to trees and woodland. These types of surveys are needed as local authorities in designated areas are required to review and assess the potential impact that a development could have on the surrounding trees, especially if it may involve tree removal.
Detailed arboricultural surveys 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, Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs), and root protection areas
If your planned development is within close proximity to trees, you are likely to need a number of tree services from an arboricultural consultancy in order to meet tree survey requirements for obtaining planning permission.
Cumbria Tree Surveyors
A tree surveyor is a professional that is qualified in tree and woodland management. The role of a tree consultant is to assess the health and safety, management and benefit of individual trees, including forests and woodland areas.
Qualified tree consultants have a varied role within ecology, putting tree care and tree management as their top priority. They have experience carrying out tree surveys and inspections and preparing tree reports for clients regarding individual trees or hectares of woodland on a site.
