Our experience of tree management within the planning system brings enviable results in balancing tree retention with the need to optimise the value of a site.

Cheshire Woodlands has been providing British Standards BS5837 tree surveys and inspections for clients across the UK for more than 20 years.  We have operatives working throughout the North-West, from Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire in the south and east to Lancashire and Cumbria in the north and Merseyside, The Wirral and North Wales in the west.

We will tailor our services to fit the particular requirements of your development proposal, with a view to securing positive outcomes as quickland effectively as possible.The effect of a development proposal on trees is a ‘material consideration’ in the planning process and local planning authorities are under a specific duty to consider the impacts on trees when determining planning applications.

The profile of trees and development within the planning system has increased significantly in recent years and where trees are present on or adjacent to a site, the submission of detailed arboricultural information, beginning with a tree inspection to BS5837 is now a pre-requisite for the registration of planning applications. Our team of experienced, qualified consultants offers pragmatic, innovative solutions to a wide range of technical problems and our long-term, close working relationships with local authority tree officers ensures that negotiations are completed quickly and with a minimum of fuss.
We can manage the tree and landscape components of your project to ensure a smooth transition through the planning process and oversee implementation on site.We will survey your trees following the recommendations of BS5837:2012 Trees in relation to design, demolition and construction and provide with our survey data and tree constraints plan identifying how trees could affect your development proposal, and an initial advice providing guidance on how you might optimise your use of the site in relation to trees. When your planning application is ready for submission, Cheshire Woodlands can provide a supporting arboricultural impact assessment and deal with tree and landscape related condition compliance.
