Tree planting / Woodland creation

I can provide a professional consultancy and project management service to deliver tree planting projects and initiatives from the start to finish.

We are in the depths of biodiversity and climate crisis where human intervention over hundreds of years has caused the decline of our native woodlands and forests.

It’s time to take action to combat this, whether it’s the creation of new woodlands or the replenishment of existing tree zones to restore them to their former glory. Tree planting is imperative to sequester carbon, to support ecosystems for decades to come and help us drive towards net zero

Project cycle
Full site survey and consultation

I will meet with the client to discuss their proposal in full. We will discuss the desired project outcomes, brainstorm ideas, and review timelines and budgets. At this stage, I will carry out a full site survey which includes soil testing to ascertain the pH, structure, and soil type.

In addition, I will look at the aspect of the site and the endemic tree species that may be present in the surrounding areas. This will determine the type of native tree species that will thrive in that specific environment. I will then plot the area accurately so that it can be transferred to a site plan which will be submitted with the draft proposals.

Draft proposals

I will present my proposal for the area with a draft 2d site plan with an outline specification which will detail the recommended tree species and the number of trees possible. This is an opportunity for the client to feedback and request any amendments or changes to the plan.

Final design

Once the client is satisfied, I will submit a final 2d plan, full planting specification, and future maintenance plan.

Project management

If requested I am able to oversee the projects on the ground, from organising accredited contractors and drafting contracts or service level agreements (SLA) to supervising the works on the ground.

I will ensure that the work is delivered to the specification set out and to the highest quality giving the client peace of mind that the full life cycle of the project is in safe hands.

Communication and Education

Once the client is satisfied, I will submit a final 2d plan, full planting specification, and future maintenance plan.
