Tree Protection Management Plan
Tree Protection Management Plan (TPMP) is frequently required when construction or demolition is likely to come in conflict with schedule trees or Council owned trees. The TPMP forms a critical part of any development to demonstrate that the proposed operations can be undertaken with minimal risk of adverse effects on the subject trees. The TPMP is prepared by our CCC Approved Technician Arborist to comply with the requirements of Chapter 9 Natural and Cultural Heritage of the District Plan (9.4 Significant and Other Trees, 126.96.36.199.3 restricted discretionary activity RD5: earthworks within the dripline), and the Construction Standard Specifications CSS: PART 1 2019 – 22.0 Protection of Natural Assets and Habitats – particularly relevant sections 22.3.
For this purpose, Purearb uses a mapping and augmentation software that enables us to accurately plot trees and calculate root protection areas. Our onsite flexibility and capabilities allow us to survey and plot large areas prior to construction swiftly and to identify tree conditions and their retention potential, producing appropriate plans for tree protection. All data gathered from this process is compiled into fully compliant itineraries and reports to support the planning process. Expert advice will be given by our qualified staff to ensure tree safety, providing as well a range of solution to facilitate the construction whilst minimising potential harm to retained trees.
Vehicle Crossing Application
A Vehicle Crossing Application is required when a new vehicle crossing and associated earthworks come within the tree’s dripline.
For this purpose, a TPMP is frequently required to demonstrate that the proposed operations can be undertaken with minimal risk of adverse effects on the council tree(s).
