Seeing the wood for the trees

Trees are important for the environment. They can also contribute to our mental health and sense of well-being. Temple’s arboriculture consultants have a passion for urban ecosystems with a focus on trees on development sites, their contribution to the urban forest, and improving tree health and longevity in built environments.

We have a wealth of experience across numerous sectors, including large-scale infrastructure, private developments, local authority housing projects and the redesign of public spaces. Our arboriculture consultants carry out detailed and rigorous arboriculture surveys, Arboricultural Impact Assessments (AIA) and Arboricultural Method Statements (AMS) to meet the often demanding requirements of a project. We have expertise in the pre-application, construction and post- construction stages of development, working to BS5837:2012 to provide site- specific advice for ensuring compliance throughout a project.

Our consultants make use of AutoCAD to produce detailed Tree Constraints Plans, Tree Retention and Removal Plans and Tree Protection Plans showing Construction Exclusion Zones (CEZs) and plans which can be used on site for tree protection. We also work closely with Temple ecologists and other specialist colleagues to develop fully integrated strategies for individual developments.
