Tree Felling Inspection

Tree felling inspection prior to starting. Currently undertaking a clear felling contract for Richmond Contracts Projects Ltd. In line with the ecologist report regarding nesting birds, 24 hours notice was given to start work after the inspection for nesting birds. A pre-felling climbing inspection was also undertaken, with photographic evidence of no nesting birds. All done in accordance with the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 is the primary legislation which protects animals, plants and habitats in the UK.

An Act to repeal and re-enact with amendments the Protection of Birds Acts 1954 to 1967 and the Conservation of Wild Creatures and Wild Plants Act 1975; to prohibit certain methods of killing or taking wild animals; to amend the law relating to protection of certain mammals; to restrict the introduction of certain animals and plants; to amend the Endangered Species (Import and Export) Act 1976; to amend the law relating to nature conservation, the countryside and National Parks and to make provision with respect to the Countryside Commission; to amend the law relating to public rights of way; and for connected purposes.

Tree felling inspection. Good to see that, as always, Rylands are behaving in a very professional manner.
