Londons Hidden Dimension: Underground buildings beneath trees - Guildford
Dave Cashman is an Associate Director of Barrell Tree Consultancy (www.barrelltreecare.co.uk), a planning and legal-orientated tree management practice based in the UK. He has a background in both commercial and municipal arboriculture, but in recent years has developed a practical specialism in subterranean developments near trees in London. These are high profile projects throwing up unusual issues, invariably requiring an open-minded and innovative approach to problem solving. Unlike conventional above-ground developments, there is no well-established or formal guidance to reference when dealing with trees in the subterranean world, so working closely with other professionals is an essential aspect of ensuring that important urban trees can be successfully retained. This paper explores why there has been an increase in underground development and, although the observations are UK based, the principles are likely to be applicable around the world wherever there is limited scope for extending existing properties above the ground.
David Cashman holds the City and Guilds Certificate in Arboriculture, and the Royal Forestry Society’s Professional Diploma in Arboriculture, which is the premier qualification within the Arboricultural Profession. He is a Fellow and Registered Consultant of the Arboricultural Association, and a Chartered Forester. He has worked in local government and commercial tree management for nearly 30 years, starting his career as an apprentice arborist at London Borough of Sutton where he gained valuable experience and practical skills in all aspects of arboriculture. In 1986, he was promoted to Assistant Arboricultural Officer (Technical) within the Borough.
David has delivered training workshops in the UK and New Zealand.
