Different Types of Tree Survey and Report

Depending upon your requirements, we will provide a tree survey and report to suit your specific needs.

Tree Survey and Report for Planning Purposes

Are you intending to submit a planning application and trees are located nearby? You need one of our qualified arboricultural consultants to undertake a BS 5837 tree survey. This British Standard specifies exactly what data is gathered during the tree survey for inclusion in the tree report for development.

Our tree surveyor will assist you to acquire planning consent by minimising the impact on trees. Quality documentation is very important in determining planning applications, so we always recommend requesting samples before engaging a consultant. Visit our Documentation and Presentation page where you can download samples of our Tree Data Schedule, Tree Constraints Plans, and Arboricultural Method Statements.

For further information on the BS 5837 Tree Survey and other reports for planning purposes, please visit our Tree Surveys for Planning page.

Tree Condition Survey and Report for Safety Reasons

Tree Preservation Orders

Local Authorities have the power under the Coutryside and Rights of Way Act to create Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs). These may be on individual trees, groups of trees, or woodlands. The purpose of a TPO is to protect trees against removal or improper pruning that would result in a significant loss of amenity. For further information about how to obtain a Tree Preservation Order or how to oppose a TPO, please select Tree Preservation Orders from the menu above.

Litigation – Legal and Expert Witness
