What We Do
Our skilled team will make and initial assessment and assess the floral composition of a site in order to guide our clients through the correct surveys to progress their projects. Some sites will require assessment of habitat or hedgerow diversity to determine its protection status, others will look as species specific protected, rare or endangered species. Tree assessments will help inform upon rare, veteran or specimen trees for retention whilst also determining any health and safety concerns in the short and long-term.
