Bat surveys and aerial tree inspections


Bat surveys
We have experience of inspecting trees for bat roost potential including initial ground-level scoping surveys and more detailed assessments. We are also proficient in undertaking dawn and dusk emergence surveys using bat detectors.

Our climbing experience and knowledge of how to use endoscopes means we can undertake aerial inspections of trees, if the aforementioned surveys identify the need for such an inspection.

The experience and knowledge of the EECOS ecologists and arboriculturist provide an integrated approach to managing trees with actual or potential bat roosts. We can assess the impacts on roosts, produce mitigation schemes in accordance with best practice guidance from the Bat Conservation Trust and Natural England, and provide method statements for any tree work to comply with mitigation.

Aerial tree inspections
Initial tree surveys and inspections are carried out from ground level, using appropriate equipment such as binoculars and high-powered torches. Sometimes it is not possible to assess features or defects from ground level, and in such instances, a subsequent aerial inspection would be recommended.

We have staff qualified to undertake climbing inspections, for safety assessments and specialist bat surveys.
