A BS 5837 Tree Survey is an important element to know exactly what Trees have an impact on the proposed development and that the development will have on them.

Where trees need to be removed, we will always like to ensure suitable replacements are provided as mitigation. This will provide a continuity of tree cover.

A BS5837 Tree Report is an important element to know exactly what trees that you have on your site, how important they are and the impact that they will have on the proposed development and that the development will have on them.

The BS 5837 tree report is the basic report to address the trees on the site and on neighbouring land immediat3ley adjacent to the proposed development. It will start off with an Executive Summary and the Terms of Reference, the documentation that has been provided, and an introduction to the site.

The introduction will include a record of the trees on and adjacent to the site, the proposed works, issues of lighting and shading, and the site levels and soil types and condition.

This will lead into the BS5837 Arboricultural Impact Assessment (AIA) and the Tree Constraints Plan (TCP).
