We are always on the look out for new field surveyors, from experienced and licensed field ecologists to those wishing to start out and gain more experience in conducting surveys. Please get in touch!


Practical Ecology Ltd was established in 2010 with a vision of providing a new approach to ecological consultancy- pragmatic, proportional and sound ecological advice.

We're a small company with a big aptitude. Our small size means that our clients have the same point of contact throughout their project and receive a freindly, personal service. In short it means we care about your project and work with you to get it right.

As our name suggests we take a practical approach to our work and do all we can to help our clients secure planning consent, whilst doing everything possible to avoid unnecessary surveys and delays. In our experience, ecology needn't be a showstopper and working around ecological issues needn't be a headache.

We enjoy working with a wide and varied client base from large housing developers, private individuals and architects to civil engineers.

We're proud to work in partnership with Haydens Arboricultural Consultants who offer a range of arboricultural services and have an excellent reputation as one of the leading arboricultutral consultants in the UK.
