Everything you need to know About Tree Surveying

Arbtech Tree Surveys

Two of our tree experts working on site.

So, you are a developer, site owner or architect and maybe you are thinking of building an extension or renovating / developing a property. If the building in question is close to trees then you will probably need a tree survey, and our arboriculturists have over 10 years of experience in doing them!

Tree surveys are needed because UK planning authorities are required to check the impact that a new development could have on trees and vegetation.

To do this, they use a number of documents that outline the potential impact of the development. If you need a tree survey then you will need the services of an experienced, trustworthy consultant to help your project go smoothly. When it comes down to the length of time it takes to complete your tree survey, it comes down to the arboricultural consultant you choose to do it.

The time that different consultants take to complete the work can vary quite a bit. For an experienced company like Arbtech, the time scales usually fall into the following categories:

BS5837 Tree Survey – around 1 – 5 days.
Impact assessments – between 2 – 4 days.
Method statements and tree protection plans – between 1 and 3 days.

At Arbtech, our arboriculturists don’t undertake subsidence work, or get involved with TPO appeals, or bid for large scale tree safety surveys. We don’t do any of this because we are not jacks of all trades. We are the masters of one, having an unwavering focus on BS5837, trees and development. Because helping people with tree problems secure a planning consent is all we ever do, we’ve become pretty nifty at it, and we’re justifiably proud of our reputation for being the best in the business. A reputation that we have spent the best part of a decade earning.

Not only are we able to complete your survey quickly and efficiently but working with us also has the following benefits:

  • We provide you with fixed prices and no hidden extras
  • We have a 98% success rate in planning
  • To make everything as simple as possible, you can book over the phone
  • We save you money by reducing delays

The Tree Survey Process

Before we do any tree surveying, we kick things off by asking you a few key questions. What are you planning to do, how, and where? With a site plan and that information, we can get your project moving forward at warp-speed. Occasionally the challenges of your project are especially demanding, and still less regularly, even our survey capacity is overwhelmed – but most of the time you’re looking at a couple or three days for your survey and report.

We can do this because of our investment in tree surveying technology; our experience of undertaking (probably thousands and certainly) hundreds of projects that present near identical constraints and challenges to your own site; and our personal relationships and reputation among the majority of local authorities throughout the UK. Uniquely, we employ an expert team of arboriculturists and tree surveyors that are located throughout the country, so except in highly unusual circumstances, the only variable determining the tree survey cost is the number of trees you have.

How much does a tree survey cost?

In the vast majority of instances, development sites have 100 trees or fewer and in response to this we developed a banded, easy to understand price structure for all of our BS5837 tree surveys: 1-20 trees, 21-50 trees and 51-100 trees; starting at just £349 plus VAT. Naturally, these prices are inclusive of our expenses. (If your site has >100 trees, just call us and we’ll get you a quote back within the hour.)

We are so confident that you wont be refused planning consent on the basis of (following) our advice, we offer a 100%, no quibble, money back guarantee on all of our arboricultural survey and report services.

Tree Survey Feedback

We have hundreds of 5 star reviews on our reviews page. Here is one example of the great feedback we get from our clients…

Arboricultural Method Statement, Tree Protection Plan

Matt was very quick to pick up the file and realised the importance of getting it done ASAP so we could amend our planning application. Matt also made us aware of the negative areas we had within the application and those that could possible effect a decision in our favour.

Great feedback and attention to detail throughout the process.
