Tree Survey Reading: Our Arboricultural Services
Tree Survey, Reading
When requesting planning permission for a development, a tree survey may need to be undertaken. Tree surveys and tree reports will be required if a potential development site will be within close proximity to protected 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 proposed development could have on the surrounding trees if a planning application is submitted.
Tree 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 development requires a tree survey, Reading, you will need the extensive range of services from a tree consultancy in order to meet tree survey requirements to obtain planning permission.
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 protection areas.
Tree consultants have a varied role within ecology, putting tree care as their top priority. They carry out different types of arboricultural reports and surveys 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 management recommendations and specific mitigation measures that must be taken to protect trees from damage.
Our tree surveys in Reading can also help to put you in touch with professional tree surgeons to help with your development project if they are required.
