Tree Survey Telford: Planning and Development

Tree Survey Telford



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 for planning permission 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.

Telford 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, putting tree care as their top priority. They undertake tree surveys, Telford and inspections and prepare tree reports for clients regarding individual trees or all trees on a site. Consultants can also provide specific information about the trees on site, including types of trees and the quality of trees. 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.

Arboricultural services are typically required by developers involved with the planning and development of a site. Landscape designers, professionals in the construction industry, architects and individuals looking to obtain planning permission for a property may all require tree consultant services. Our tree surveys can also put you in touch with the best tree surgeons to help with your development project, whether you have a single tree or a group of trees.
