Trees are Material Consideration in the Planning process. Trees covered by Tree Preservation Orders,
or located in Conservation Areas, have special status. Tree assessment for design purposes is necessary at an early stage of any project.
Sites under consideration for development already benefitting from significant tree presence are, without question, enhanced by its preservation. Trees provide setting, a sense of place, a sense of connection with the past, valuable natural amenity, privacy, shelter and enjoyment. Tree assessment for design purposes informs good decision-making relative to removals.
Decisions on which trees to retain, possible remedial works and future tree management require a multi-party approach. This can present challenges, but is always worthwhile.
treeplanning has earned a reputation for effective navigation of the Planning process, and is committed to serving the interests of developers, large and small.
