New Leaf provides Project Arborist services including tree protection plans, construction tree management plans, certifications, monitoring and inspections of trees on development sites and works near trees.
Councils and other governing bodies and project managers increasingly require projects with trees on site to have a Project Arborist. The role of the Project Arborist is to assess the impacts that are likely to result from the works on site, including earthworks, demolition, services trenches, footings, structures and landscaping. Where such works are within the identified Tree Protection Zone of trees on site (12 x trunk diameter at 1.4m) the Project Arborist should be on site, unless already assessed as acceptable works. The Arborist may measure, record and prune roots while on site, and in some cases will require tree roots to remain in place.
This is an extension of the Arboricultural Impact Assessment and happens while the project is ongoing. New Leaf is responsive to client timeline requirements to ensure unnecessary delays are minimised. The Arborist will work with you to find solutions which will minimise impacts on trees while achieving project requirements.
Tree protection during development works is vital for ongoing tree health and stability.
