Arboricultural Impact Assessments

Following on from the tree survey and in line with the guidance within BS5837, the Arboricultural Impact Assessment (AIA) provides an evaluation of the direct and indirect effects of the development proposals on trees and provides mitigation recommendations where applicable.

We are strong advocates of discussing proposals with the design team at an early stage to highlight any potential issues and to maximise both site potential and success throughout the planning process. We want you to have as smooth an application process as possible.

To us, a tree survey and AIA is much more than a tick box exercise. You can be sure that our in-depth knowledge of BS5837, the planning system and construction process, coupled with our close liaison with allied disciplines, will help, not hinder you.

Having positively dealt with many thousands of sites of all sizes over a 30+ year period, you can be sure that we have the requisite knowledge and experience to help you get your project across the line quicky and efficiently.

For any site with trees on or adjacent, contact us for help.
