Tree Constraints, Feasibility and Opportunities
BS5837:2012 is a set of recommendations and guidance that looks at tree retention or planting when proposed in conjunction with design, demolition or construction of a particular site. The objective should be to achieve a natural, harmonious relationship between trees and built structures and form, that can be sustained in the long-term.
Prior to the purchase of a site or offering a site for sale, we can provide an overview assessment of the arboricultural site constraints and opportunities. The Tree Constraints Plan is produced from the tree survey and will illustrate the root protection areas for each tree and the above ground constraints of a trees canopy. This information will then aid in forming a brief letter report.
This report and plan is created to be a design tool to help identify development potential. Understanding the complete constraints and opportunities of any site, whether it be arboricultural, ecological or topographical to name but a few elements, is critical in order to design and plan a successful proposal.
