At JCA we complete a wide range of Arboricultural Surveys for development to British Standard 5837. The quality and value of new developments is enhanced by the retention and integration of existing trees providing they are in good condition and appropriately sited in relation to buildings.
This can best be assured if trees are surveyed before development plans are drawn up. This will reduce the likelihood of damage during development or premature removal at a later date. JCA can provide specialist tree surveys at the design stage to the specifications set out in British Standard 5837: 2012 Trees in Relation to Construction.
A topographical survey forms the basis of our digital survey plan which features accurately drawn crown spreads and shapes with colour coding to illustrate the ‘retention category’ of each tree. Plans are provided to scale where required and can be emailed back to your designer to overlay onto the proposal.
