A BS 5837 Tree Survey involves the collection of tree measurements and other tree data for the creation of plans and reports for use in the design and planning process; This ranges from singe house-extensions to large development sites.
This type of tree survey uses the British Standard BS 5837:2012 as a guide. This is the framework used by planning departments to assess whether trees are worthy of protection/or whether their removal is appropriate.

This spurred us on to start Ligna Consultancy, where our primary founding aim was to provide easy to understand, relevant advice. We feel that our role as experts is to simplify our industry; not dress it up with big words in order to justify our fee…
At Ligna we believe that the arboricultural industry is only just beginning to evolve to meet the demands of today’s architects, developers and duty holders. We aim to be at the forefront of this shift, and are constantly looking into new technologies and methods to improve our service to you.
