Everything You Need to Know About a BS5837 Tree survey?

You local council has policies that protect trees in your area. Any time you are developing existing buildings or on land proximate to trees, a so-called BS5837 tree survey is generally required by your local council’s planning office before they will consider your development proposal (a BS5837 tree survey is often a ‘validation requirement.’) This is because whether you wish to construct a small house extension or a 500 unit commercial development, your council deem that it could negatively affect the surrounding trees.

Usually, all trees over a 7.5cm diameter need to be included in the BS5837 tree survey–though they don’t all have the potential to constrain your development. This includes off-site trees and other vegetation within 10 meters of your site boundary. The BS5837 tree survey must include the species of tree, its orientation as well as dimensional and root protection area data. Of course, a BS5837 tree survey would also include notes about its structural and physiological condition. Other features such as shrub areas, hedges, or regenerating woodland must also be included.

In your BS5837 tree survey, the trees’ positions are of particular importance and should be marked up on a topographical survey or OS tile. This will ordinarily show all relevant site features, including existing buildings, roads, street lighting, drains, walls, fences and everything in relation to what is being proposed and possible constraints to root development.

We have tree experts that can cover nearly all of the UK, although the majority of our tree survey work is done near London, Surrey, Kent, Hertfordshire, Sussex, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.
