Development projects often require land to be cleared prior to construction. Land clearing in Brisbane requires careful planning to ensure the health and safety of protected flora and fauna. Many tree varieties are considered protected and as many as possible must be retained during the development process.
In order to ensure the maximum use of space a skilled arborist is needed. The most efficient use of time and money involves calling in an arborist prior to land clearing to assess the current trees. The arborist will check each tree for health and determine which trees must be removed for health reasons. Then, working with the developer, the arborist will mark which trees should be retained. Arborists that can provide sufficient reporting for development purposes have over six years of post graduate study in arboriculture. They are highly skilled professionals that specialise in trees and shrubs.
Development projects that have ignored the necessity of retaining the services of an arborist have often wasted thousands of dollars in the planning stages only to have their land clearing in Brisbane delayed by the City Council. Arborist reports are necessary to ensure that trees are properly considered as part of the planning process.
Brisbane is highly concerned with maintaining as much natural flora as possible. Failure to consider environmental impacts prior to permit application has caused more than one development to fail in the planning stages. Consider all aspects of construction before spending money on plans that will need multiple revisions. Get it right the first time by working with the natural landscape instead of against it.
