Tree Survey Leicester: Our Arboricultural Services

Tree Survey, Leicester

When requesting planning permission for a proposed development, a tree survey may need to be undertaken. Tree surveys reports will be required if a potential development project will be within close proximity to existing trees and woodland and could pose as a potential risk to them.

These types of surveys in Leicester are needed as local authorities will review and assess the potential impact that a development could have on the surrounding trees if a planning application is submitted.

Tree surveys for planning are necessary as a number of 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 development requires a tree survey in Leicester, you will need the extensive range of services from an arboricultural consultancy. They understand how to meet tree survey requirements to obtain planning permission.

Tree surveyors

A tree surveyor, otherwise known as an arboricultural consultant, is a professional that is qualified in tree and woodland management. The role of a tree consultant is to advise and assess the health, management and benefit of individual trees, including forests and woodland areas.

Arboricultural consultants have a varied role within ecology. They undertake tree surveys and inspections and prepare tree reports for clients regarding individual trees or all trees on a site. On development sites where retained trees are endangered by construction work, a consultant may be required to provide specific mitigation measures that must be taken to protect trees from damage.

The tree survey process will typically be required by developers involved with the planning and development of a site. Landscape designers, professionals in the construction industry, planning departments, architects and individuals looking to obtain planning permission for a property may all require surveying and reporting for trees.
