New Standard for tree planting proposed

~ Friday, 22nd July 2011

A new British Standard for tree planting is being considered by the BSI.  In our opinion, such a standard is overdue, and would be most useful if it were to inform other associated standards, such as the Design manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB) which prescribes landscape management for highways projects, where much of the non-forestry tree planting in the UK is carried out.
