Over 650 trees have been planted at the London SIP and they frame the avenues and swales within this commercial Park. The infrastructure tree and hedge planting scheme was undertaken by us this year, as a specialist sub-contractor of VolkerFitzpatrick Limited. The trees have been planted early in the Park’s development to provide a robust landscape structure and attractive environment for those working within and visiting the Park.
The larger structure trees; Alder, Silver Birch, Beech and Lime are located in areas away from high level, overhead lines where there is plenty of growth space available.
The smaller tree species; Field Maple, White Birch, Hornbeam and Goat Willow are more widely planted across the park and as the trees mature they will be maintained at a height below the required cable clearance zone as stipulated by the power and utility providers.
In accordance with the Landscape Architect’s recommendations, from circa 2018, qualified arboriculturists will be appointed to review and help maintain the trees within specified areas of the Park.
Barry Chinn Associates, Chartered Landscape Architects of Southam, Warwickshire, supervised the implementation of the landscape scheme as members of the design team for the London SIP.
