Your development may contain protected trees and you may be required to engage a minimum AQF Level 5 Arborist with a minimum of 5 years experience.
To assess any construction work around trees in accordance with the Australian Standard 4970 for the Retention of Trees on Development Sites an arborist may be required.
Existing trees can have significant impacts on the design of any project including the Civil design. Any encroachment on the root zones of trees from retaining wall footings, building footings or simply excavation near trees can create significant cost implications for your project.
Contact Citicene to learn more about engaging an arborist prior to any construction on site.
