BS5837 Tree reports for planning applications

What is included ?

We are always honest and open about success rates, what is needed and what costs are involved in gaining a successful outcome when trees are involved in a planning application

Our fixed price quotes include for all 3 stages of a BS5837 report, this is because all 3 stages are nearly always needed to satisfy the loacal authority and planning department. If however it is identified at stage 2 that we don’t need to carry out stage 3. we notify you and discount our quote accordingly.

If you are requesting a BS5837 planning report it is usually because trees have already been identified as a potential issue and as such all stages are needed, we have taken the decision to not try and real people in with low staged pricing knowing full well that all stages are likely needed!

Prices start at £395.00 + vat for all 3 stages

Stage 1
