Visual Impact Assessments

As Consulting Arborists, dsb Landscape Architects can evaluate and assess and report on existing trees, provide reliable advice on retention and removal options and provide the documents in preparation for the approvals process. When the approvals process becomes protracted, we can intervene professionally to achieve a timely outcome.


Vegetation Assessments & Advice

Where trees  and development clash, it is often a lack of understanding of the system / administration or a limit on the information available.

Pre-development advice entails an inspection and advice on tree impacts on development potential prior to commitment to purchase.

Development in proximity to retained trees requires a Management Plan to demonstrate and direct ongoing viability of the tree in conjunction with innovative construction techniques to mitigate the impact. We work with your project team to achieve the optimal outcome.


Our 40 years plus experience and our previous experience in Administrative Tribunals and Courts, ably demonstrates our capability in providing arborist expert witness advice and court appearance services.
