BS 8545: From Nursery to Independence in the Landscape

Keith Sacre. Sales Director Barcham Trees.


Slide2 l.jpg

Reasons a new standard was considered necessary:

Lack of any existing standard which recognised the transition from nursery to independence in the landscape as a continuous process.

Trees in Towns II.

Suggests that up to 25% of the young trees planted by local authorities into the landscape fail.


Slide3 l.jpg

Some examples.

Trees planted too deep.

Absence of roots inside a supposed root ball

Poor nursery production methods

Poor root system

Drought ?


Slide4 l.jpg

Some more

Distorted and damaged root systems early in the production process

Poor quality and ill specified nursery stock

Lack of formative pruning post planting.

Inadequate maintenance

Unfair competition !!!!!


Slide5 l.jpg

And to finish:

Reliable means of assessing physiological health.

Stake and or tie !!!!!

Failure to incorporate latest research into best practice guides and standards


Slide6 l.jpg

Progress so far:

Business plan and scoping document submitted to British Standard Institute and accepted. BS number created. BS 8545.

undertake a comprehensive literature review of relevant subject material.

In my opinion, to be successful, there cannot be a reliance on the drafting panel to

research, provide information and expertise, assimilate and draft the new document

There will be a need for ongoing consultation with all those involved in the whole

process of successfully transplanting young trees from nursery to permanence in

the landscape.

The London Tree Officers Association have already set up a working party to provide

information on current practice in the London area.

Any thoughts, views, items for consideration, examples of considered best practice

would be most welcome and can be sent to keith@barchamtrees.co.uk

If anyone would like to discuss further or be involved in anyway then please telephone

me on 01353 720748 or mobile 07789 744700.
