What is this standard about?

BS 8545 gives recommendations for transplanting young trees, with a view to achieving their eventual independence in any landscape.

It specifically covers planning, design, production, planting and management of young trees.

Who is this standard for? 

  • Anyone involved in the planning, planting and management of new trees
  • Garden designers
  • Garden nurseries
  • Transporters of new trees

Why should you use this standard? 

It outlines a process for planting young trees that will result in them achieving ‘independence in the landscape’, meaning they are healthy and have every chance of survival. 

This standard will assist practitioners in making balanced and informed tree planting decisions. Ideally, all newly planted trees need to be able to grow with vigour appropriate to the species and situation, in good health, and with minimal nuisance to achieve the desired planting objectives.

BS 8545 applies to trees where a distinct crown has been prepared in the nursery. It does not apply to whips, transplants and seedlings, or to other woody material.
