Arboricultural Services - Tree Protection Plans

What is a Tree Protection Plan?

A Tree Protection Plan is a scaled drawing, usually developed in CAD software, which shows the measures that need to be put in place to ensure the safety and long-term viability of retained trees.

These methods may include tree protection fencing, temporary ground protection and other site-specific protection measures to ensure that Contractors on site have clear, unambiguous, guidance on the steps they need to take to protect onsite trees.

The Tree Protection Plan is usually required as a component of an Arboricultural Impact Assessment and forms part of an Arboricultural Method Statement. The baseline BS 5837 survey provides the information on tree character and condition which is required to develop a Tree Protection Plan.

Our Arboricultural Consultants have provided Tree Protection Plans for a whole range of developments; from previously undeveloped sites, to existing college and commercial sites where expansion and improvement proposals need to work alongside the existing soft landscaping.

We would bring this experience to your project, to provide a high quality, accurate protection measures for the trees which might be affected by the proposals. This gives you the confidence that the long-term viability of the trees is secured and gives your Contractors the information they need to get the work done effectively and safely.

Our plans are completed to Best Practice as outlined in the British Standards BS 5837 guidelines, and our reports consistently provide the information required by our clients to secure Planning Permission.
