When do I need an Arboricultural Method Statement?
Tree surveys are often a requirement for planning applications. Trees are vital features of a landscape and offer many benefits from aesthetical factors to scientific factors.
If construction is required with the root protection area of a tree a council will usually condition an Arboricultural Method Statement as part of the planning approval. This details how construction will be carried out, the timings of operations and any special construction measures that will be employed to lessen long term impacts to trees.
The Arboricultural Method Statement is a methodology for dealing with the implementation of any aspect of development that has the potential to result in the loss of, or damage to, trees.
