Arboricultural Management

    Why trees matter

    It's hard to imagine a world without trees. As well as being beautiful, trees are essential to their local and global environment. Often referred to as 'the lungs of the earth', trees help combat climate change - absorbing carbon and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere through photosynthesis. At a local level, trees play a major part in providing natural, sustainable drainage. In urban areas, shade from trees produces a cooling effect. They also diffuse noise, reduce pollution and soften an otherwise stark landscape.

    What PBA Consulting do

    Tree Radar

    Our qualified staff use advanced investigation techniques as required to take the guesswork out of evaluating trees. We use specialist non-invasive equipment including TreeRadar GPR trenchless root locator; advanced TreeRadar decay scanning. Where required these non-invasive techniques can be supported by Air-spade minimal damage trenching and, invasive/partially invasive Resistograph micro-drill/ Picus Tomograph decay investigation techniques. 

    Keeping Amenity Trees healthy

    Trees provide amenity benefits to the public. They are found in diverse range of locations, from highway boundaries to private gardens to entire woodlands. Ancient trees are also valuable amenity trees containing unique eco-systems. To promote the health of amenity trees, PBA Consulting offers:

    • management advice on cultural techniques, maintenance and replacement to ensure tree health, form and vigour.
    • a structured approach to carrying out tree stock assessments, preparing strategy and management plans.
    • specification of new and replacement trees
    • supervision of amenity tree planting to ensure best practice
