Arboricultural Services - Planting and Habitat Creation

What is Planting and Habitat Creation?

It is often necessary to plant new trees or woodland habitat as part of a development - this might be to provide enhancement, to replace trees lost during construction, or to provide an aesthetic or amenity space around your new site.

Expert knowledge is required to ensure that the tree planting and habitat creation measures are effective and appropriate. Key to good design is understanding how the trees will fit within your site in the long term, taking into account constraints such as space and aesthetics, as well as understanding how local conditions such as geology, hydrology, aspect and land form will affect different species.

A good planting and habitat design will be efficient in terms of costs and resources; detailed in terms of specification and proposals; effective at providing the ecological, amenity or aesthetic function you seek; and specific to its context both within the site and within the local landscape.

 

How can LSC help?

The team at LSC have been widely involved in the design of tree planting schemes and habitat creation to support developments. This ranges from soft landscaping schemes with ecological value for foraging birds; through to woodland regeneration schemes for the restoration of semi-natural conditions on planted ancient woodland sites.

We will draw on our extensive experience to design the optimal planting scheme for your site, working with the space and constraints you have.

 

 Tree planting is a great way to enhance the green space or soft landscaping on your scheme - it provides green space; screening for visibility and noise; and habitat for a range of native species. Getting the right species mixes and planting design for your site requires expert input to maximise these values.
