The Need for a Tree Inventory Survey

If you are considering developing a parcel of land with a significant number of trees, it is highly likely that the local planning authority will require a detailed tree inventory survey. This survey serves as an essential tool during the planning and design stages, outlining any significant and high-value trees that need to be taken into consideration. By identifying these trees early in the process, you can ensure their proper integration into the development plans.

For large landholders such as golf courses, schools, or retirement villages, a tree inventory survey provides a comprehensive list of all the trees on the site. This report is invaluable for effective tree management and serves as a valuable resource for future planning and development endeavours’ on the site.

The Importance of Tree Inventory Surveys

Tree inventory surveys play a crucial role in the development design stage, as they offer guidance on the positioning of proposed developments based on the retention value of existing trees. By utilising the information obtained from the survey, developers and planners can make informed decisions regarding the layout and design of the project while considering the preservation of valuable trees. This proactive approach can significantly contribute to the sustainability and aesthetics of the final development.

One of the key benefits of obtaining a tree inventory survey early in the planning process is that it can help prevent potential redesigns due to the rejection of proposed plans by the local council. By incorporating the survey findings into the initial design, developers can avoid costly modifications later. This early consideration of trees in the development process saves significant time and money, streamlining the overall project timeline.

Furthermore, tree inventory surveys provide a baseline assessment of the tree stock on the site. They help identify any significant or high-value trees that may require special attention or preservation measures. The survey can also highlight trees that need specific maintenance work and provide an overview of the general condition of the tree stock. This valuable information allows for the effective allocation of budgets and resources to address necessary tree care and management, ensuring the health and longevity of the trees on the site.

Conducting a Tree Inventory Survey

To ensure accurate and reliable tree inventory surveys, it is imperative to have them conducted by appropriately qualified arborists. In most cases, local planning authorities stipulate minimum qualification requirements, often mandating an AQF Level 5 Arborist qualification. Additionally, it is recommended that arborists conducting the tree inventory survey possess additional industry training in tree risk assessments, especially when the survey results will be used to manage the required work on the trees.
