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. 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.

Our goal is the enhancement and conservation the environment. We seek to unite the individual aims and objectives of our clients with the character, constraints and zoning requirements of the site.

Landscape Plans

Landscape plans are a key consideration for all developments. A well conceived landscape plan integrates a development within its environment. It makes a positive contribution to the surrounding area and can add to the market value of the site.

Incorporating existing healthy vegetation, screening shrubs, natural habitats or features into a plan can give schemes an instant maturity and assist their integration into the local area.
