Arboricultural Consultancy Services

Trees in the urban and rural environments present many different challenges for tree owners and at CGM Group we offer independent and impartial advice to our clients on a variety of arboricultural and planning issues.

Tree Health and Risk Management

Understanding and managing the health of trees is vital to maintaining a viable and healthy tree stock and our qualified consultants ensure they maintain their knowledge and understanding of tree health issues, including new pests and diseases, through a structured development plan.

From a basic ground level inspection through to a full tree survey and plotting tree locations on OS maps and tree management plans our consultants can tailor our packages to your requirements.

Following identification of tree pests, wood decay fungi and tree health conditions we can suggest appropriate management. Utilising modern equipment we can also carry out detailed decay detection analysis to provide an informed decision on the condition of your tree stock.

Working in partnership with our Arboricultural Operations Department our consultants provide reports to supplement applications for tree works where Tree Preservation Orders are present.

Planning and Development

Our qualified and competent consultants carry out tree surveys to BS 5837:2012 to inform and assist planning applications for development. This includes preparation of Tree Constraints Plans, Tree Protection Plans and Arboricultural Method Statement to select trees worthy of retention and ensure they are adequately protected throughout the development.

Using air spades and working with our operational teams our consultants can carry out root zone investigation to identify and where necessary prune back roots or allow for safe installation of services without damaging tree roots (our air spade can also be used to carry out decay analysis of structural roots).

Our consultants can provide subsidence and mortgage reports for individuals and businesses at competitive rates.
