Grosvenor Square, London

i-Tree Study

Following a full i-Tree Eco study carried out in June 2018, the London Grosvenor Estate has commissioned a separate study to focus on Grosvenor Square Gardens. This report specifically focuses on the many benefits that the trees and ‘urban forest’ in Grosvenor Square. The aim of this report is to demonstrate the ecosystem services of the trees in Grosvenor Square Garden’s so that they can be considered for their full natural capital.

It is inevitable that, with or without strategic intervention, there will be changes to the character and composition of the urban forest over time. This study has been provided to help to make strategic tree population management decisions more informed.

The Cadogan Estate Gardens, London

Ecological Enhancement Plans & i-Tree Study

Following the tree survey TMA have produced an i-Tree Study to analyse the ecosystem services that the tree population contribute and an Ecological Enhancement study. Cadogan estates now have digital tree survey data and a database of high-quality tree information including all historical tree data. This not only includes standard tree data it also includes information to analyse the environmental benefits of their trees. High level risk reporting and auditing programmes allow Cadogan to identify and quantify risk across their estate. Ecosystem services measurements and ecological enhancement plans all feed into a bigger project of maintaining and enhancing the estates green spaces.

The Hurlingham Club, London

Exclusive Sports Club

The Hurlingham Club, located in south west London is an exclusive sports club set in 42 acres of grounds and is the birthplace of polo. TMA were instructed to undertake a full tree health and condition survey which recorded in detail the dimensions, features, defects, and other client-defined fields. Recommendations for necessary remedial works was submitted and in addition we were asked to specify abatement of actionable nuisances e.g. low canopies over footpaths.

The survey data was delivered via a bespoke desktop server. This allowed the client to receive a PDF report with mapping and have full access to MyTrees software which facilitates easy management of work orders as well as analysing data of their tree stock. Our arboricultural consultants were heavily involved throughout the project delivery and attended multiple committee meetings with the club members and staff to discuss the tree survey.

Folkestone & Hyth District Council

Highlighting Required Works

TMA were instructed to undertake a large-scale tree health and condition survey on all land within the ownership of Folkestone and Hythe District Council. The survey highlighted where works were required and allocated a risk-related priority in accordance with calculations made by Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA), one of the risk assessment tools adopted by TMA. This enabled the tree managers to commission and undertake work in a way which mobilised resources to the works with the highest priority first. The tree survey data was delivered with full access to the MyTrees software. In addition, training was provided to facilitate easy management of work orders as well as having the ability to analyse data of the tree stock.

Lyon House, Harrow

Mixed-use Development

The proposal was for the demolition of the existing buildings and the comprehensive redevelopment of the site including residential and commercial usage. The scheme also included significant landscape and public realm enhancements.

Where crown spreads of TPO trees overhung the footprint of the building, recommendations for proposed pruning works where given to facilitate the approved development. Prior to construction TMA provided detailed methodology for carrying out excavations within root protection areas of retained trees. The Arboricultural Method Statement advised on screw piles and correct methodology. This was reviewed at site inspection.
