Trees on development sites usually require a condition survey in accordance with BS5837 (Trees in Relation to Development). This identifies the species, age and condition of individual trees and groups of trees. WWC undertakes:
This is a good time to carry out nut searches for signs of dormice. Late September is also the end of the reptile season and bat survey seasons. We start compiling the majority of European Protected Species licence (EPSL) applications from this time onwards.
Please refer to our survey timetable for further information on surveys that can be undertaken this season.
