Trees in Construction

The British Standard BS5837 ‘Trees in relation to design, demolition and construction – Recommendations’ recommends methodology for the protection of trees to be retained in an approved layout. We liaise with other specialist consultants to ensure that the protection measures for retained trees are practicable and successful, going on to provide supervision and monitoring when required and maintaining proactive dialogues with local tree officers. The services we provide include:

  • Detailed arboricultural method statements once planning is achieved
  • On-site tree protection during construction works
  • Prevention of root or tree damage during excavation, foundation or hard surface construction, or underground service installation
  • On-site instruction and supervision of construction works close to trees
  • Monitoring of trees and tree protection measures during construction
  • Full tendering and contract management service for tree felling or surgery works
  • Supervision, inspection and validation of tree works
