This On-Ground Tree Protection Fencing option is quickly deployed and highly robust meeting British Safety Standards around Tree Protection when carrying out development projects with nearby trees, although it is the most expensive compared to our Heras & Stabiliser and Timber Postfencing systems. Heras Tree Protection fencing is our most lightweight option and tends to be used for smaller projects with little red tape. Timber Post Tree Protection fencing requires posts to be dug into the ground requiring more manual labour.
Tree Protection Fencing with Scaffolding Tubes tends to be used for projects that require greater regulation and need a TPO drawn up in accordance with British Safety Standards.
Our Scaffold Tube Tree Protection Fencing is made up of the following components:
- Anti-Climb Heras Mesh Fence Panel – 3.5m wide and 2.0m tall round top corner fencing panels. These fence panels are excellent for temporarily securing a perimeter being lightweight, portable and cheap.
- Horizontal Tube (21ft Scaffolding Tube)
- Vertical Tube (10ft Scaffolding Tube)
- Diagonal Tube (10ft Scaffolding Tube)
- Anchor Tube (5ft Scaffolding Tube)
- Joint Pins
- Fixing Pins
- Swivel Couplers
- Ground Pin
- Double Coupler
- Heavy Duty Cable Ties – used on the steel bar's of connecting panels to further reinforce the strength of your fencing line.
Please note, if you are installing corners on your Tree Protection Fencing perimeter – an additional 10ft tube may be required. This will be priced on application once the site layout has been confirmed and signed off. Speak to our Sales team today, if you require any clarity on this.
Tree Protection Fencing is essential for preserving trees on your site. Many activities and operations can cause severe damage to trees such as exposure of wood tissue, crushing of roots, damage to roots through excavations and chemical spillages.
This type of protection fencing is crucial when working in the vicinity of trees and hedges – fencing lines must be erected where the integrity of these trees are being compromised. This boundary creates a safe exclusion zone around the tree or to prevent an accidental collision with the protected tree.
Tree Protection Fencing is carried out in accordance with BS5837 (Trees in Relation to Design, Demolition and Construction) which is in place for all local authorities to consider the protection of trees potentially in danger due to work developments on-site. Trees and surrounding areas that must be protected in the area will be specified in the Tree Protection Plan which must be in place before any work takes place on-site.
Tree Protection Fencing must protect the entirety of the tree – including the root system, trunk, bark, branches, tissue and surrounding soil from damage, compaction and contamination.
Tree Protection Plan
A Tree Protection Plan should clearly indicate the exact location where protective fencing barriers should be erected to form a construction exclsuion zone around retained trees.
Tree Protection Fencing Barriers must be fit for purpose for your project. Scaffodling Tube Tree Protection is the default specification and consists of vertical and horizontal scaffold framework which are well braced to resist impacts. Vertical Scaffold Tubes should be spaced at a maximum of 3 metres and driven securely into the ground. Our Welded Mesh Fencing Panels are securely fixed onto the Scaffold Framework.
