Any infrastructure construction projects usually consist of five phases: planning, design, pre-construction, construction and post-construction. The fate of trees on the site can be affected during all of these phases. Unfortunately, tree management is often not brought into the development process until construction and post-construction phases. Based on our modern alternative we encourage developers to work with an arborist early in the process that will result in higher levels of tree survival, usually at a lower cost.
It is necessary to carry out detailed tree inventory and locate individual trees on the site plan with the help of an arborist. Tree location should be considered in relation to above and below-ground activities, current and proposed structures and future site use activities. Location also applies to the root system and canopy spread. Based on this, any construction conflicts with trees can be identified and important decision of retaining or removal of trees can be made. There is also a good chance to consider modifying the building design in order to accommodate maximum number of trees in the project
