Arboriculture at Smeeden Foreman
We undertake tree surveys to BS5837:2012. This makes an assessment of trees in relation to design, demolition and construction. Trees are a material consideration in the UK planning system and our surveys provide information and advice to developers during the early design phase of a project. We produce drawings and reports scheduling and recording the findings of the survey and the arboricultural implications of the proposed development, along with methods of protection to retained trees for the duration of the construction works. We also undertake applications for works to TPO trees or those in Conservation Areas and hedgerow surveys under the Hedgerows Regulations (1997). We can also advise on woodland practises and maintenance.
