Arboricultural Method Statements
Where proposed developments or site activities might have an adverse impact on retained trees, an Arboricultural (or Tree Protection) Method Statement may be essential in order to implement controls to safeguard those trees throughout the construction process.
There are many site activities that could impact on trees, for example lifting or laying of hard surfaces close to trees, demolition near trees, installing services near trees, general building near trees and even landscaping near trees.
Certain information for inclusion within the Arboricultural Method Statement will be fairly straightforward, however when it comes to detailing the actual site activities that will need to be carried out before, during and after key site phases, you do not want to leave anything to chance.
Our experience in producing Arboricultural Method Statements is second to none and we regularly take an active role in supervising on-site activities to ensure compliance with the agreed working methodologies so that the client is not exposed to potential enforcement action.
