Our Elite Ecology Tree Surveys follow two routes:
- BS 5837:2012 Trees in relation to design, demolition and construction – Recommendations.
Trees are vital features of a landscape and offer many benefits from aesthetical factors to scientific factors. We at Elite Ecology will undertake the necessary arboriculture surveys for developments, from small-scale extensions to large-scale developments. The surveys follow the regulations that are set out in the ‘BS 5837:2012 Trees in relation to design, demolition and construction – Recommendations.’ These surveys include the species, condition, height, crown spread and stem diameter of the specimens required to be surveyed. A desktop study will also reveal any site protection, including any Tree Protection Orders (TPO’s) that may be in force.
2. Home Buyers Tree Surveys
The second type of survey to be offered by us at Elite Ecology is a home buyers tree surveys. These are often required by mortgage lenders and a qualified surveyor of Arboriculture may be required to offer invaluable insight into any trees that may compromise a building’s integrity. These surveys are offered at very competitive prices for the industry and are able to highlight any issues with the trees that could cause structural and human damage or harm. We are then able to offer the appropriate remedial action that is required.
