Aerial Tree Climbing Assessments

Britain has 17 resident species of bat of which at least 14 are known to roost in trees. We have a team of 12 arborists and ecologists including licenced bat workers able to undertake aerial tree assessments and advise our clients on how best to manage these transient roost sites.

Aerial tree assessments provide the equivalent of a daytime internal and external building assessment as each feature can be fully inspected using an endoscope. These surveys as recommended by the current guidance from the Bat Conservation Trust aim to reduce further survey effort by discounting the suitability of many tree features which provide low or negligible potential for roosting bats.

Working as City & Guilds NPTC assessed climbers, FPCR can provide comprehensive tree and woodland management recommendations to fulfil our clients’ requirements.
