Our Capabilities

With all our surveys we use the latest GPS plotting technology and up to date OS digital data.  Our tree safety surveys will always include carefully considered and prioritised advice designed to reduce hazards to reasonable levels in the most cost-effective way.  Our surveyors work hand in hand with our Arboricultural unit and can if required seamlessly programme and execute any works identified as part of the survey process.

Surveys intended to support a planning application will comply fully with BS5837 2012 (Trees in relation to design demolition and construction).  It is important to ensure that trees are considered at an early stage of any development to avoid unnecessary expense or aborted work. We can work with you at every stage of the development process.  Our team includes several former local government officers who can expertly assist you with the sometimes difficult to comprehend planning system.
