Handheld GIS and software systems allow data to be logged and processed in real time on-site. We use CAD and tree mapper for producing site plans allowing clear representation of tree positions, sizes and shape as well as the location of protective fencing and any other relevant features.
We can advise on type and location of protective fencing, use and storage of building materials on-site which could affect the trees, and replacement planting should trees need to be removed.
