Tree Protection Plan and Arboricultural Method Statement

A Tree Protection Plan will normally be developed from the Tree Constraints Plan, incorporating the finalised site layout. It will incorporate survey details, a site plan and a report, covering:

  • justification for removal/retention/treework proposals
  • the layout and specification of Tree Protection Fencing
  • Root Protection Areas
  • proposals for moving existing trees
  • construction details, and methods of working, for any activity that will breach Root Protection Areas
  • proposals for Arboricultural Supervision during construction
  • comments supporting the sustainability of proposals
  • any ongoing maintenance or protection needed.

Structural tree planting, to mitigate essential tree removal, can be specified if not covered in separate landscape proposals
