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.


Vegetation assessments and reporting is undertaken by Arborist Australia member arborist with over 40 years’ experience in the format and to the process required for the jurisdiction of the site. Digital documentation is made available for project team coordination.


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.
