Complying impact assessment reports
Impact assessment reports outline all activities and site considerations during development that may impact the trees within the boundary of the site.
When developing, building or renovating, tree impact assessment reports are needed as part of the DA application, listed under AS 4970/2009 Protection of trees on development sites.
Tree impact assessment reporting
Our aim is to provide you with fast, complete and compliant arboricultural impact assessment reports. These thorough reports document all site conditions and activities that may impact the trees are outlined to ensure your project is not delayed or at risk.
Tree impact assessments requirement vary between councils. However, our arborist consultants ensure each report includes a plan to scale of the site showing the trees, buildings and structures and adjacent trees relevant to the assessment, our methods and techniques used in our inspections, a table listing each trees species, height, trunk diameter, and canopy, health and life expectancy of each tree.
Reports also ensure supporting documentation such as photos or test results are included, any replacement plantings, landscaping and soil remediation and the reasonings for our findings. Every report is complete, no section is open to interpretation.
Commercial and council
For commercial developments, Complete Arbor Care work with surveyors, architects and developers, as well as local councils that require reports prior to development.
Our independent impact assessment allows the site to be developed as intended at the same time as reducing the impacts to the trees.
