Designed as a tool for tree management including maintenance, conservation and the issuing of tree preservation orders (TPOs) by local authorities, ProximiTREE details the exact spatial location and height of individual trees together with the circumference of its canopy.
From this information a determination can also be made of the root extent and therefore the potential impact on either existing or proposed properties.
"ProximiTREE is designed to provide an easy-to-use reference base for all decisions relating to the location of trees including their proximity to either existing or proposed developments," said Bluesky operations director James Eddy. "Derived from the most detailed and up-to-date aerial photography it is suitable for use by property developers, local authority users and insurance companies."
