Tree Protection - BS 5837
Please Note: Some sketches of BS 5837 show a mid-rail/tube, this will only be required if using weld mesh for the fence, if using standard Herras type site panels the mid rail is not necessary, although most council planning/tree protection officers will insist on it.
Tree Protection including a mid-rail.
Length of run in meters equals " a "

You will also require some form of mesh panel, this can be either standard site panels, each panel being approx 3.6m long, or the use of reinforced mesh or chicken wire etc which is then wired into place. It is not usual to have three horizontal tubes, two will be sufficient for use with standard site fence panels, however, as stated above some site will insist on the midrail.
