Bat Survey Before Tree Surgery in Scotland

Bat populations in the UK have been declining at an alarming rate in recent years and it is now estimated that there may be as few as 10,000 breeding individuals remaining. Bats are protected by law and any development which is likely to impact them must be assessed by a suitably qualified ecologist.

If you are planning to have tree surgery carried out on your property, it is important to check whether there are any bats present before work begins. Clyde Tree Surgeons can carry out a bat survey in Scotland for you and, if necessary, put in place measures to protect the bats during and after the tree surgery takes place. This will ensure that your tree surgery can go ahead without impacting these protected animals.

This is usually done using a bat detector, which picks up the high-pitched noises that bats make as they fly. The results of the survey will determine whether any further action needs to be taken to protect the bats.

How do I know I have bats?

Glasgow Bat Surveys are an invaluable way to gain information on whether your tree, home or building has bats in residence. If you are not sure whether you have resident bats here are some signs to help you out.

  • Roosting holes (not always visible, usually high off the ground and covered with greenery, especially in summer)
  • Droppings
  • Bat noises (chirruping)

Almost 100% of bats in Scotland choose to tree roost rather than in buildings.

NOTE: All bat colonies, whether on tree roosts or in buildings are protected. Destroying, disturbing or illegally moving a colony, or evidence of a colony is a criminal offence. Lack of knowledge of the presence of bats is not an acceptable defence – unless a bat survey has been undertaken.


Bat Survey Season

Ecological Surveys & Bat Surveys in Glasgow can be undertaken at any time of year. The mating season of the bat is spring when the colonies are likely to be busier with movement.

The bat survey season in Glasgow is now well underway, with many surveys being carried out by our team of experienced and qualified ecologists. Our aim is to provide a comprehensive service to our clients, ensuring that all potential roost sites are identified and assessed for their suitability for bats. We also undertake detailed tree surveys to identify any potential roost sites which may be suitable for bats.
