BS5837 Tree Surveys

Norfolk Trees can provide a BS5837 Tree Survey on request. These British Standard surveys involve the collection of tree measurements and other tree data for the formulation of plans and reports that are used in the design and planning process. These range from single house extensions to larger development sites.

We use the British Standard BS 5837:2012 to ensure full compliance as this is what planning departments will use to assess whether trees are to be protected or if their removal is appropriate and permissable.

Included in our BS5837 Tree Surveys are data relating to the trees species, canopy dimensions (including height and spread), tree trunk diameter, life stage and general observations on the trees condition and management history if applicable.

We will also categorise trees using an updated variation of the BS5837 categorisation method. Every tree we asses will be categorised as “A”, “B”, “C” or “U” based on the trees arboricultural and amenity value. Our many years of experience in tree surveys assist us in this process to produce relevant reports for each survey.

Norfolk Trees are a team of fully qualified and trained tree surgeons with professional tree inspection qualifications. We use the latest CAD software to produce reports and cover Norfolk and Suffolk. Ask us for more details on any of our tree services.
