Spring has arrived and summer will soon be on its way with many protected species emerging from hibernation, including bats, great crested newts and reptiles.
Spring also marks one of the busiest times for TMA's Ecology team, since the presence or absence of species like these can only be assessed during their most active months. Give TMA a call to discuss your project and we can explain which surveys may be required and when. In many cases surveys will not be necessary, but expert advice is recommended at the earliest opportunity to avoid surprises later on.
TMA Ecology offers a wide range of ecological services including Phase 1 Habitat Assessments, Protected Species Surveys, Mitigation Solutions, Ecological Clerk of Works, Invasive Species Surveys, BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH).
For more information regarding survey seasons, please refer to the TIM MOYA ASSOCIATES SURVEY CALENDAR on our website or contact us for free advice.
INVESTORS IN PEOPLE GOLD AWARD
A very proud day for Tim Moya Associates
Tim Moya Associates have been awarded Investors in People Gold Standard! After first being accredited in July 2017, TMA have been reaccredited at Gold level until 2020.
Investor in People is the standard for overall business management, which defines what it takes to lead, support and manage a business and its people well for sustainable results. Organisations that meet the world-recognised Investors in People Standard reflect the very best in management excellence.
This year’s assessment was the first under a new, more rigorous framework which reflects the very latest workplace trends, essential skills, and effective structures required to perform in any industry.
TMA is an environmental consultancy company, providing Arboriculture, Ecology and Landscape consultancy. We have strong values and are immensely proud of our staff and the way in which they embody these principals, we scored particularly high in areas such as “living the organisations values and behaviours” and “structuring work through effective IT solutions”.
Staff interviewed all described how the senior team work in a very unified way, each with their own area of expertise, how they all embody the ‘TMA principles’, how open and trustworthy they are and how passionate they are about the Practice. Every member of staff interviewed commented that this was motivating and inspiring and created an environment in which they could give their best and feel valued for their expertise.
Personal development of our staff is hugely important to us. Not only through training and resources but through investment in IT and our MyTrees software. We recognise the importance of career progression and personal development.
‘Having a resource library such as ours speaks volumes about Tim Moya Associates. It means they have committed time, effort and money – it’s not just about finances, it’s about having a knowledge database that increases our expertise. It says so much about the Practice. Learning is on tap’
‘it’s the best job I’ve had – the environment, the people, the work’
We would like to thank all our staff and associates for taking part in our recent IIP assessment and look forward to upholding the IIP values and principles for years to come.

This ensures that TMA can continue to undertake detailed decay investigation using the most up to date technology, which can provide comprehensive evidence to enable informed decisions about tree management.
