Our core operational area is Dorset and Hampshire but we also work within Wiltshire, Devon, Somerset, Surrey and West Sussex, but we are happy to provide a quote for your project nationally.


Ecology can be daunting, however Cherry Tree Ecology Ltd. is a small, friendly company which can help clients navigate their way through legislation, survey work, licensing and mitigation.

Over 10 years experience

Qualified surveyors

Pragmatic solutions

Competitive pricing


Every project is unique and every site has its own potential ecological constraints. In order to assist us in pricing your job we will ask you to provide relevant information (eg. site plans, correspondence from Local Authority) before producing a quote. The size, location and complexity of the site, in association with other local factors such as proximity to designated wildlife sites, will all influence the scope and hence cost of the work.


Cherry Tree Ecology Ltd. will recommend a level of survey work for your site that will support your planning or other application, based upon current guidance and our own experience. We will only ever recommend additional survey work where current guidance dictates that this is necessary.
