Arboricultural Clerk of Works (ArbCoW)
To ensure compliance with the approved planning documents, it can be necessary to supervise construction that is in close proximity to trees. This ensures the works are following approved methodologies and reduces the possibility of accidental tree damage. The local authority tree officer will expect an auditable table of site supervision within the approved Arboricultural Method Statement to understand the key stages of implementation. Where trees are subject to legal protection, such as Conservation Area Restrictions or Tree Preservation Orders, or are in the ownership of the local authority, having a record of approved methodologies provides evidence of conformity. Our consultants will provide a memo report with every site visit necessary, to maintain a record of compliance should it be required.
