What is a BS5837 Tree Report for?

Local Authorities aim to retain trees [and other landscape features such as hedges] on development sites which, as assessed in a tree plan by a suitably qualified Arboriculturist (Tree Consultant or Arboricultural Consultant), are suitable for retention.

This is achieved by carrying out a tree report which suitably assesses the Arboricultural constraints of a site, guiding the design to accommodate trees [where necessary and suitable] and outlining suitable BS5837 tree protection methodologies for the protection of trees during and after demolition / site works / construction.




Why is a BS5837 Tree Report needed?

Ultimately, compliance with BS5837 tree report guidelines is required as part of any situation where an Arboriculturist undertakes processes including:

  • Tree Survey
  • Tree Constraints Plan
  • Tree Report (Arboricultural Implications Assessment and Method Statement)
  • Tree Protection Plan.


The tree-related planning policies and/or supplementary planning guidance can be found via your local authority website section, with our team happy to discuss any specific BS5837 report questions you may have.
