Nationwide tree surveys, BS 5837 plans, reports for planning applications
Tree Heritage Consultancy services include nationwide tree surveys, BS 5837 plans, reports for planning applications.
BS 5837:2012 is a mandatory standard which exists in order to ensure that trees (existing and proposed) are taken into consideration throughout the design, demolition and construction of the built environment. This applies to all trees, within or alongside all proposed projects – even those that don’t require planning permission.
The Standard provides a sequence of procedures to be followed to ensure “a harmonious relationship between trees and structures that can be sustained in the long term”. The Standard stresses the importance of getting a Tree Survey completed “prior to and/or independently of any specific proposals” in order to avoid project delays, thereby saving time and money. It is therefore vital to obtain professional arboricultural advice at the outset of any project.
