Arboricultural Method Statements
What is an Arboricultural Method Statement?
An arboricultural method statement is very similar to other types of method statement. It provides detailed information on how to carry out building work, so that the remaining trees (and their root protection areas) are safe and unharmed.
This is usually carried out after the planning applications have been finalised, but before any construction work takes place.Here at Nicholas Jones, all of our method statements, arboricultural impact assessments and tree surveys are carried out in line with the BSI’s (British Standard Institution) latest recommendations. This means that we uphold the highest standard in our work; making sure the work is carried out right each and every time.
When Do You Need a Method Statement?
Your local authority is likely to request a method statement when you’re planning construction work near important trees and their root protection areas. This is to ensure that the retained trees aren’t damaged by any construction work.
In some cases, you won’t be able to get planning permission until the method statement is approved and the work method is adhered to. That’s why it’s important to have a clear, thorough method statement to ensure you get the consent needed from the local authority.
