Bartlett Arboretum secures planning permission

We are really pleased to have secured planning permission on behalf of Bartlett Tree Experts to develop a landscape led design for their private arboretum and associated research buildings. The project will assist Bartlett Tree Experts in showcasing their skills and passion for trees.

We worked with ward-winning Landscape Architects Harris Bugg Studio to develop a landscape led master-plan for the site. The organisation of the landscape zones has been inspired by tree rings and the internal morphology of a tree. The outer ring along Beech Hill Road involves the planting of a diverse arboretum, the inner ring provides research planting beds and at the centre the existing woodlands are restored. As part of the arboretum a research building will be provided with laboratory, offices and lecture auditorium. The building has been designed to sensitively integrate into the proposed arboretum and landscape. Careful consideration has been given to the form of the proposed building to ensure it sits in harmony with the existing and proposed woodland.
