Tree Protection Plans BS5837:2012
The plan should clearly indicate the precise location of any protective measures to be implemented to form a construction exclusion zone around retained trees. It should also indicate the extent and type of any ground protection or other physical measures required to safeguard vulnerable sections of trees and their Root Protection Areas where construction activity cannot be excluded.
The details for tree protection should be incorporated into relevant subsequent plans and method statements used for design purposes and any construction drawings issued for use on site. It is essential to ensure that all interested parties are fully aware of the areas in which access and works may and may not take place.
