Tree Felling/Surgery - Aerial Tree Surveys (Bat Roosting, Bird Nesting)

Aerial Tree Survey bats and birds, Echoes EcologyEchoes Ecology have an experienced team in place to carry out aerial surveys of trees which require to be worked upon as a result of development or habitat management. We are able to combine our knowledge of protected species with our expertise of having carried out numerous contracts, of all sizes, of this type. All of our tree climbers are qualified (NPTC Tree Climbing & Aerial Rescue). We operate thorough risk assessments and our insurances fully cover us for such circumstances.

In conducting the work, one of the qualified climbers will also be a licenced bat worker and experienced grounds person, therefore if a roost is found we can immediately gather the information that would be an essential requirement for a Hab Regs European Protected Species (EPS) Licence. Our aerial survey team comprises of in-house ecologists (with tree climbing qualifications) combined with the 'day-to-day' working experience, in this challenging environment, of Kelly Tree Care. By choosing to supplement our team with external full-time tree contractors, we find we are able to deliver contracts more effectively, thus saving our clients time and costs.

We are also giving our clients the option, when appropriate, for trees to be worked upon or felled alongside the bat and bird assessments, hence speeding up the process and saving costs for the client.
