BTC/113/2016 - Tree assessment for planning. The AA Arb Magazine (Spring 2016)
From March to May in 2016, in association with Barrell Tree Consultancy, the AA ran a nationwide series of five two-day workshops to bust the myths of managing trees on development sites. In this article, Jeremy Barrell, reviews the background to tree assessment and sets the scene for a new evolution of the BS 5837 method that was launched at these events. Designed to take the mystery out of the process, this enhanced method will draw on decades of experience from more than 5,000 development projects to provide a depth of analysis that has so far been missing from all the published literature.
