For local authorities we can:

Comment or assist in the determination of applications and notifications of works proposed to trees subject to a tree preservation order or located within a conservation area.

Inspect, survey and recommend suitable works to trees growing on council land.

For local developers we can:

Conduct tree surveys in accordance with British Standard 5837: 2012 Trees in Relation to Design, Demolition and Construction - Recommendations.

Recommend suitable protection measures to successfully integrate the existing trees into the new development.
