Tree surveys are required for a wide number of reasons including planning and development. Historically, Tree Care Company has provided Tree Surveys for landowners including private landlords, architects, land developers, estate managers and the legal profession in Leeds and the surrounding areas.

Variety of Surveys

Tree Care Company can provide a wide range of tree surveys including;

  • Tree Surveys for Planning Purposes

If you are submitting a planning application and trees are located nearby, then you will be required to appoint an Arboricultural Consultant to undertake a BS 5837 tree survey. This tree survey dictates the full extent of data gathered during the tree survey. This data is included in the tree report. A Tree Care Company tree surveyor will assist you to acquire planning consent by minimising the impact on trees.

  • Insurers and Mortgage Lenders

Insurers and mortgage lenders often require a tree report that assesses the risk that the property has been or could be damaged by nearby trees.

Tree Care Company is also able to advise on the likelihood that existing building damage has been caused by trees. Our tree reports include clear advice and management recommendations.
