I'm starting to wonder whether life as an independent consultant would be the way to go. Can anyone advise on a suitable setup in terms of a GPS device to collect the survey data, and software to collect and download the tree survey data and produce tree plans, especially plans for BS5837? I can write my own professional AIA and AMS report and would rather do my own tree protection plans than pay for someone else to do them. I presume I would need some sort of professional indemnity insurance too.

 

Any advice welcome as this is all new to me.

I use Otiss software, and pretty happy with it. I learnt a lot about arb and forestry consultancy from working within a company before setting up on my own, worth a thought if you've not already done it that way. Best of luck with it
