The provision of an Arboricultural Method Statement (AMS) should be requested once planning permission is in place. The AMS should be accompanied by a Tree Protection Plan, and both viewed in conjunction with one another. All elements of the agreed AMS must be adhered to in full- to avoid damage to trees and enforcement action by the Planning Authority.


The AMS must include detailed descriptions of: The oder of operations; pre-commencement site meetings; site monitoring; site organisation; general principles for the management of tree roots; the installation of new drainage within RPA’s; the diversion of utilities within RPA’s; demolition; and the construction of boundary walls.

Site-specific requirements should also be detailed, these include: Protective fencing; ground protection; the installation of new hard surfacing within RPA’s; and finally the removal and/or replacement of existing hard surfaces within RPA’s (where appropriate). 

All of our reports are written and reviewed by appropriately qualified arborists in accordance with BS 5837:2012 Trees in Relation to Design, Demolition and Construction- Recommendations
