Our aim

Our company goal is to provide professional opinions on trees and to ensure that existing trees are always taken into consideration in development plans. Additionally, we hope to provide a complete planning support package for developers, architects, and landowners, that will ensure the protection of key arboricultural features.

We aim to find a balance – between the practicality of development and the protection of key arboricultural features, providing a complete planning support package for developers, architects, and landowners. Holly Arboriculture treats trees as a material consideration within the planning process. Our integration within a scheme can often make a difference, not only to the outcome of a planning submission but also to the character and value of a completed scheme.
