Upon provision of a finalised development design, we are able to produce an Arboricultural Impact Assessment for your project. An Arboricultural Impact Assessment will assess any effect which the proposed development and its construction, may cause the local tree population.
As of 2008, Arboricultural Impact Assessments are required by planning departments in order to validate planning applications which propose works near trees.
Our Arboricultural Impact Assessments consist of two main parts; a written appraisal and an Arboricultural Site Plan (ASP).
As well as assessing the development’s potential for harming nearby trees, our Arboricultural Impact Assessments also specify specialist construction methods which will allow for development within the, usually off-limits, root protection areas (RPAs) of retained trees. This can be an invaluable approach for allowing a project to meet its full potential.
In this section of the report we also take into account the workability of the site during construction, and advise on the location of access routes, working space, and office areas.
