Based in Shropshire but operating throughout the UK and overseas, DGL Environment offer bespoke environmental consultancy services in the fields of ecology, tree surveys & arboriculture and international development. We provide professional assistance to a range of clients across the public, private and charitable sectors including Local Authorities, major national companies and developers, conservation and heritage bodies, and individual private clients.
UK-wide ecology and arboricultural consultancy
Our UK-wide work is defined by unbeatable value-for-money and a strong client-focus that helps to ensure positive outcomes for all our work, whether on a large or small scale. We have a strong track record in providing specialist input tailored to suit the individual requirements of each project. More information on our UK work can be found under the ecology and tree surveys and services pages above, but some of our services include:
- Preliminary ecological appraisals & extended Phase 1 habitat surveys
- Bat survey, newt survey and the full range of protected species surveys
- Ecological Impact Assessment (EcIA) and input to EIA projects and schemes
- BS5837 tree surveys, arboricultural impact assessments and method statements
- Tree safety surveys
- Mitigation and monitoring, for wildlife, trees and woodlands
- Management plans for wildlife, amenity trees, woodlands and estates
- Farm conservation advice
- Ecological design and research
- Design, delivery and practical implementation of habitat creation and restoration schemes.
Our international expertise focusses on the integration of environmental or nature conservation objectives with sustainable, equitable, social and economic development. Practical project experience working in the UK and in developing countries has taught us some invaluable lessons, but with it comes the understanding that with good planning, communication, partnership working and strong practical implementation, win-win scenarios for both people and nature are possible. Nature conservation objectives really can be integrated into the development process, providing positive benefits for both.
Community projects and research work
We also provide technical input and project support to community-based initiatives with ecological or environmental objectives, both in the UK and overseas, as well as ecological research projects to inform conservation management, monitor ecological changes or inform environmental policy.
