Tree Survey Hertfordshire: Planning and Development
Tree Survey Hertfordshire
When requesting planning permission for a development, a tree survey may need to be undertaken. Tree surveys and reports will be required if a proposed development site will be within close proximity to existing trees and woodland. These types of surveys are needed as local authorities in designated areas are required to assess the potential risk that a development could have on the surrounding trees as part of a planning application.
Tree surveys 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 (TPO), and root protection areas.
Hertfordshire Tree Surveyors
A tree surveyor is a professional that is qualified in tree and woodland management. Tree surveyors carry out tree surveys and prepare tree reports for clients regarding individual trees or all trees on a site. On development sites where trees are put at risk by construction work, a surveyor may need to provide recommendations and measures that must be taken when work is carried out.
