Tree Surveys/Reports – Landscape Design – Landscape and Visual Impact Assessments

If you require a tree survey to assess your tree stock, be it a single tree, a development site or a woodland we can provide management options or as part of the requirements of a planning application Yew Tree and Gardens can provide the solutions you need.

Yew Tree work extensively in Cumbria and Lancashire specialising in BS5837 Tree Surveys for planning applications in areas such as South Lakeland (SLDC), Lancaster City Council and The Lake District National Park(LDNP).

BS5837 Surveys
Trees in Relation to Construction

We specialise in tree surveying and reports for planning purposes. It is now a requirement of the planning process in England and Wales that a tree survey and report to the guidelines contained in BS5837 should be submitted if any trees are located in the vicinity of the proposed planning application.

This report should seek to inform the design process by giving the applicant and/or architects the ability to make informed choices regarding retention of or issues with trees upon site. We can advise on strategies to retain and work with valuable trees on site and liaise with Local Authority Tree Officers. All tree reports include a full inventory of tree stock likely to be affected by any development and will categorise trees by standard retention classes defined in BS5837 and also identify any work required or existing defects in the trees.

The tree schedule will be accompanied by a full written report and a Tree Location Plan which will also include Root Protection Areas where applicable. We also make use of Photographic appendices to highlight specific points and provide site overview for both Architects and Local Authority Officers.

Arboricultural Method Statement
If required we can provide an Arboricutural Method Statement (AMS). The AMS is utilised during the construction phase of a development to ensure the successful protection and future health of trees marked for retention. The AMS will often be a condition of planning consent if trees are to be retained within the site.
