Planning support
and consultancy

Tree preservation orders (TPO) and getting approval for tree work in conservation areas can present a number of challenges to property owners and developers. Permission must be sought from local planning authorities and there are strict guidelines on the works that can be carried out. Getting the paperwork right can feel both time-consuming and confusing; however, penalties for non-compliance are often stiff. This is why Treeworld offers a comprehensive planning support and consultancy service. We will manage the entire process for you, applying for permission and liaising directly with local council planning authorities on your behalf.

The right experts for the job

Treeworld’s extensive network of specialist partners includes arboricultural consultants, environmental specialists and invasive vegetation experts. We can put you in touch with a trusted, experienced subject-matter expert who will deliver the perfect solution for you. The purpose of an ecological tree survey is to determine which habitats or species exist and to highlight any potential ecological constraints. The most common ecological surveys in relation to trees are bird and bat nesting checks. With the help of our associate ecologists, we can help customers identify the right time to perform a survey and the best consultant for the job. We will also ensure that everyone involved is aware of the seasonal constraints associated with undertaking protected species survey works.
