BS 5837 Tree Reports

Arb Consultancy Ltd are adept at providing concise and focused BS 5837 tree reports to support householder and commercial planning applications.


We have a 100% success rate wherever our advice has been followed and implemented.


Arb Consultancy's straightforward and honest approach has earned us the respect of many local authorities, and we continue to foster constructive working relationships with all the tree officers and local authorities we deal with. 


Being trusted by the tree officers to provide honest, pragmatic and reliable reports gives us a competitive advantage over other consultants, and we often find that we are called in to find solutions and ways forward, where other consultants have not managed to.


We understand that trees are an important part of the natural environment and contribute significantly to the ecological, social, and economic well-being of urban and rural areas. 


Our team of qualified and experienced arboriculturists provide professional advice and guidance on all aspects of tree management, including tree surveys, tree preservation, and tree removal in relation to development.


Our BS 5837 services include pre-development tree surveys, which involve a comprehensive assessment of the trees on and adjacent to a development site to inform you of the strengths and weaknesses of your proposal - before you spend any money on design drafts and site preparation.


This assessment identifies the value, quality, and condition of the trees, as well as any potential impacts of the proposed development on the trees.

The tree protection plan and tree report will outline the measures that need to be taken to protect trees during the construction process. 


We work closely with architects, engineers, tree officers and planners to ensure that the trees are properly protected, and that the development complies with the BS 5837 standards to ensure the success of your application and project.


This will often include on-site supervision, which is usually required by condition within the planning permission. 


We can also advise on tree planting schemes and tree replacement strategies to enhance the landscape and ecological value of a site.
