As development in Ireland is ever increasing the pressure for space is immense, where there are trees and hedgerows located on proposed development sites, they are often needlessly felled or damaged beyond repair. This sort of carelessness can easily be avoided. For this to happen developers, architects and planners need to realise that safe viable trees can be an asset for the future site.
In order for the most appropriate trees to be preserved on a site a qualified arborist needs to undertake an in-depth tree survey of the site to establish the quality and quantity of the sites tree stock and be involved in the pre, during and post stages of development.
Arbor-Care work with:
Our tree surveys are conducted in accordance with the most up to date recommendations e.g. Bs. 5837 2012 Trees in relation to design, demolition and construction. Arbor-Care can provide full up to date autocad drawings showing the trees location, root protection area (RPA)
Another important factor to be considered when planning and developing a site is the need or requirement of future plantings. Too often the wrong tree in the wrong place is the scenario, which can lead to future expense and problems with the tree. We provide the correct advice to ensure the right tree for the right place is found based on professional arboricultural knowledge.
