Arboricultural Consultancy Services

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. Our qualified consultants utilise their knowledge and understanding of tree health issues, including new pests and diseases, through a structured development plan. From a basic ground level inspection to a full tree survey, our consultants can tailor packages to your requirements.

Following identification of tree health conditions we can suggest appropriate management. Utilising modern equipment we can 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 consultants carry out tree surveys to BS 5837:2012 standard – to inform and assist planning applications for development. This includes preparation of Tree Constraint Plans, Tree Protection Plans and Arboricultural Method Statements to select trees worthy of retention and ensure protection 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).

Subsidence and Mortgage Reports

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