What is this standard about?

BS 5837:2012 provides recommendations relating to tree care, with a view to achieving a harmonious and sustainable relationship between new construction/existing structures and their surrounding trees.

Who is this standard for?

  • Arboriculturists
  • Architects
  • Builders
  • Engineers
  • Landscape architects
  • Land managers
  • Contractors
  • Planners
  • Statutory undertakers
  • Surveyors.

Why should you use this standard?

Trees are important elements of green infrastructure, contributing to urban cooling through evapotranspiration and providing micro-climatic effects that can reduce energy demands in buildings. Alongside contributing to climate change adaptation, trees also:

  • Provide visual amenity, softening or complementing the effect of the built environment, and adding maturity to new developments
  • Display seasonal change and provide opportunities for wildlife in built-up areas
  • Make places more comfortable in tangible ways by contributing screening and shade, reducing wind speed and turbulence, intercepting snow and rainfall, and reducing glare.

BS 5837:2012 follows a logical sequence of events that has tree care at the heart of the process when a new construction project is planned or at existing structures. Its recommendations can be applied whether or not planning permission is required.

What’s changed since the last update?

BS 5837: 2012 has been fully revised by experts to bring it up to date with current thinking and industry best practice. It introduces the following principal changes:

  • Takes account of current practice regarding planning for the management, protection and planting of trees in the vicinity of structures, and for the protection of structures near trees
  • Updates the guidance in relation to building regulations
  • Recognizes the contribution that trees make to climate change adaptation
