Arboricultural consultancy

Posted by admin on Wednesday Aug 25, 2010 Under

quantum leapFuture Arbor Ltd provide bespoke arboricultural solutions for a wide range of design projects, to ensure long-term, healthy tree retention.  One such example is our recent involvement with the iconic “Quantum Leap” sculpture, in the heart of Shrewsbury, which was installed in celebration of the bicentenary of Charles Darwin.

The early stages of design and planning identified existing mature trees on site as having a very high public amenity value, due to the prominance of the site next to a busy highway.  Future Arbor were retained as arboricultural consultants, acting on behalf of Shrewsbury and Atcham Borough Council and Pearce and Lal architects.  We were responsible for ensuring successful project completion with tree retention being afforded the highest priority.

“I would Recommend working with Future Arbor again.  They had great insight in understanding the clients needs and balancing this with the design team requirements, delivering a practical approach to the protection of tree’s and roots during and after construction.”

Ranbir Lal, Quantum Leap architect, Pearce and Lal Architectural Practice.

This unique project required the application of cutting edge arboricultural design and engineering principles.  The sculpture’s ribs alone weigh more than 113 tonnes, with foundations and piles adding a further 93 tonnes.quantum leap construction

Future Arbor created an industry-leading footpath design with permeable sub-base, binding and wearing courses.  Fast water percolation was a design necessity, due to the project being located within a high flood-risk area.  A smooth finish and minimal gradient were essential for disability access; the finish surface must be attractive to compliment the sculpture.  Following the design process, Future Arbor managed the installation and successfully integrated this with adjacent landscaping.

“Future Arbor provided excellent arboricultural support and expert guidance.”

Dominic Wallis, Business Development Manager, Shropshire Council

Tree reports

Posted by admin on Tuesday Aug 24, 2010 Under

BS5837Following the introduction of Government Circular 02/2008, the Local Planning Authority can refuse to validate planning applications if essential tree information is missing.  Where there are trees on or close to a site, your planning application must be accompanied by some or all of the following information:

  • A full tree survey compliant to the requirements of BS5837: Trees in Relation to Construction.
  • A site plan to a suitable scale, showing tree survey information and root protection areas.
  • An assessment of the affect your development will have on surrounding trees, detailing trees to be retained or removed and appropriate protection measures.
  • A method statement detailing the means of tree protection, construction and implementation of works.
  • Survey and report undertaken by a qualified arboriculturalist.

If you have trees on your site and you wish to submit a planning application, we are here to help.  Where trees are unlikely to be a significant issue, we can provide a cost- effective solution which will fulfil your Local Planning Authority’s requirements.   Where space is tight and trees and development may come into conflict, we provide a formal impact appraisal service where required.
