Arboricultural Impact Assessments

What are Arboricultural Impact Assessments?

Arboricultural Impact Assessments (AIA) are a written assessment which determines the effect of development on existing trees. The British Standard 5837: 2012 Trees in relation to design, demolition & construction – Recommendations recommends that an Arboricultural Impact Assessment should inform the development process.


How does it work?

The Arboricultural Impact Assessment identifies trees to be retained and highlights potential conflicts with the planned development. Conflicts between trees and developments can include crown shading issues or planned development breaching the Root Protection Area (RPA).

Arboricultural Impact Assessments also consider the impact of statutory designations such as tree preservation orders (TPO’s). The assessment identifies the long-term value and benefits of trees in the urban and built environment.

Our dedicated team of consultants deliver pragmatic solutions and are able to identify and recommend suitable mitigation measures. This will help to ensure a smooth progression through the planning and development process.
