Trees can contribute greatly to the amenity and value of any site enhancing property value and biodiversity potential of developed sites. Therefore using an arboricultural consultant in the early stages of any project is essential.
CEC is a Member of the Arboricultural Association and our arboricultural consultancy services range from British Standard BS5837:2012 tree surveys and assessments, to safety, ecologically focussed and woodland management surveys, as well as assisting in the discharge of tree-related planning conditions with design and method statement input, such as technical details for permeable and no-dig paving.
Our highly experienced consultants can advise on tree protection measures and management requirements to ensure tree stock is preserved for many years to come.
Based on co-operation and innovation, our work ethos is based on working with you and your design team to design feasible and practical solutions to tree-related issues, achieving viable and distinct developments.
Our services include:
- BS5837 tree surveys and related services
- Tree condition and safety surveys, including amenity and landscape
- considerations, and preparation of tree management schedules and plans
- Forestry and woodland management surveys
- Ecological tree surveys
CEC’s ecology team can provide input to projects such as checking trees for suitability as and presence of bat roosts, identify the importance of trees in terms of habitat value and advice on veteran trees. Our landscape architects can produce tree planting and mitigation plans, construction details for integration of tree planting in paved areas and technical details for permeable or no-dig paving in tree root protection areas.
Commissioning tree surveys, ecology surveys and landscape design with us as a one stop shop will ensure that results of these three disciplines are coordinated for maximum client benefit.
