We also assist a wide range of clients with the management of notable trees under their care, and have well-developed expertise in the assessment of activities that affect such trees.

Advisory Work

Peers Brown Miller Limited can provide expert witness testimony for planning inquiries, appeals, local authority and environmental court hearings, other legal proceedings. We also offer expert advice on resource management and district plan issues relating to trees and protected vegetation.

Arborist Reports

An arborist report is an integral component of the development and resource management process where protected trees and vegetation are involved. Specific and accurate information about the trees and vegetation in question, such as location, condition, structural integrity, disease, infestations and vigour is detailed. The report also identifies the nature of the work to be undertaken and proposes appropriate protection measures if needed. An arborist report helps determine the legitimacy or merit of requests for tree removal or works which may affect retained trees and vegetation, enabling the efficient review of proposals by local authorities. This can result in fewer delays in the processing of applications.
