Arboricultural Services - Arboricultural Method Statement
What is an Arboricultural Method Statement?
An Arboricultural Method Statement provides detailed, step-by step-instructions relating to tree works and tree protection measures to be implemented during the construction process.
This Method Statement is often a requirement of planning permission on sites where trees may be impacted, and is developed from the Arboricultural Impact Assessment. The Arboricultural Method Statement is written clearly and comprehensively for use as a reference document by Contractors during the construction process. It provides all the information required for contractors to fully protect trees during construction.
The local Tree Officer may carry out site visits during construction to ensure that tree protection measures have been implemented. Adherence to a good Arboricultural Method Statement will ensure that your contractors are working to ensure the long term viability and safety of your trees.
