Arboricultural Requirements when Purchasing Land – FREE Guide

Developing land with trees

If you are purchasing land for a new venture or similar and there are trees on the site, you will need to mitigate against damage or loss of trees on or around a development site.  If planning applications are submitted without taking this into account, in most cases, the application will be rejected or put on hold until relevant arboricultural issues are addressed.

 If you’re expecting to submit a planning application, the following should be considered:

  • Pre-construction Feasibility Study
  • Initial Tree Survey
  • Tree Constraints Plan
  • Tree Protection Plan
  • Arboricultural Implication Assessment
  • Arboricultural Method Statement

We have produced a FREE Planning with Arboriculture Guide which provides more details on these topics.  Please feel free to download a copy.
