Tree Protection Plans

Being one of the leading tree survey companies for Chester, Indigo Surveys provides a tree condition survey to promote health and safety. On-site, we will check for tree failure and sickness among the present trees, as well as set up tree protection plans.

As per the Occupiers Liability Act 1984, you as a property owner are required to assure the safety of visitors to your premises.

As part of our service, we ensure that we can set up a plan for you to follow that is easy, and provides a tested approach that will improve the safety of the trees inspected in the area. This will not only ensure that the protected trees stay as such, but also that there’s no shadow of a doubt that you will give at least 10% back to nature, as the Government demands for all development projects in protected areas.

BS5837 Tree Survey – how does it play out?

First, we carry out a visual tree inspection of all trees, plus any trees outside the immediate area that could have negative impacts on the planning application. We will ensure these trees are identified by any means possible, even through aerial drones, or use technical equipment to trace and log the tree roots.

The tree report will have recommendations for any trees in the area that require felling or pruning where possible, as well as clear indications where individual trees or protected trees must remain untouched. Tree mitigation and management plans will be drawn up to cover you with the local authorities, especially in cases where you do have to fell trees, as you may be required to replant to replace a proportionate number of trees.

“We have retained Indigo Surveys to undertake measured surveys and tree services for various projects over the last 5 years and have always found the price, quality and customer service to be excellent. Andrew Turnbull is exceptionally helpful, easy to contact and always responds to queries in a timely manner.”

Claire Williams
Project Manager

“I have worked with Indigo on many school projects. Many ran at the same time and had very short pre-construction programmes. Indigo were proactive and able to meet the challenging programmes, which enabled us to meet all submission dates for approval. We were kept aware of all ecology/arboricultural issues from the outset.”

Jane Shaw
Senior Design Manager

“Indigo’s role in the Project Team was crucial in obtaining Planning Permission on a complex and challenging site. Their expert arboricultural knowledge resulted in successful negotiations with the Planning Authority and helped make the project feasible while also ensuring that it preserved the character of the site.”

Graeme Mill
Project Architect

“We used Andy at Indigo Surveys for a difficult planning scheme in Wimbledon Village and found his knowledge and strategy in dealing with the various issues thrown up very impressive and the added footprint that this gave the client on the scheme was invaluable. We continue to use Indigo Surveys Ltd for Arboricultural Consultancy services, and would be very happy to recommend them.”
