Tree Survey Warwickshire: Our Arboricultural Services
Tree Survey, Warwickshire
When requesting planning permission for a development, a tree report or survey may need to be undertaken. Tree surveys and 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.
Tree surveys are also required to help ensure health and safety in some circumstances. Unsafe trees are a common cause of damage to property and accidents, which may lead to public liability and employers liability claims. In these circumstances, tree surveyors usually work alongside tree surgeons to help ensure tree safety.
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, forests and woodland areas.
Tree consultants have a varied role within ecology, putting tree care as their top priority. They carry out different types of 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.
