Ecology and Arboricultural Services

Quants Environmental provides ecology and arboricultural surveys throughout Yorkshire, the north of England and beyond. Our main services include Ecology, Habitat and Biodiversity Surveys (including Preliminary Ecological Appraisals and Biodiversity Net Gain Reports), Protected Species Surveys and Licensing (such as for bats, badgers and great-crested newts) and Tree Surveys.

Our staff have been working in a broad range of sectors with a varied client base for many years. We can draw upon our experience from many different project types, varying in scale and complexity, and are proud of the fact that much of our work is repeat business from regular clients or word of mouth recommendations.

We specialise in steering clients through planning applications, with the aim of delivering practical solutions for our clients and better outcomes for nature.

Quants Environmental is a Registered Practice with the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) and has been trading since 2010. We have experience of co-ordinating the full range of surveys for small residential plans, through to larger developments, renewable energy schemes and linear infrastructure projects.

We offer ecology and tree surveys throughout Yorkshire and the Yorkshire Dales, Derbyshire, Teesside and Tyneside, and occasionally undertake projects further afield, by client request.

I have found your approach to survey and the quality of your work to be of the highest standard. Quants have turned work around for us at short notice and delivered to time and budget in a highly professional manner. It’s been a pleasure to work with you and I hope to work with Quants again soon.
