  1. Hi All, I am a new member and I am an architect and arboriculturist, based in Warwickshire. I am looking for some feedback if possible. I am passionate about both trees and buildings, and in particular am interested in locating trees close to buildings. There are a number of barriers preventing this, such as : - the RPA calculation in BS5837 - threat of litigation - lack of arboricultural knowledge that architects have My doctoral research relates to how these barriers could be moved to allow trees to be located closer to buildings taking advantage of all of the widely known benefits. Can anyone comment on how the 12x calculation for single stem trees for RPA was arrived at? The calculation seems arbitrary and doesn't appear to necessarily relate to all situations. I am also interested to know if anyone knows the authors of the calculation or how it was arrived at.
  2. A friend and colleague of mine has developed a tent which can be suspended from anchor points in trees it's called Tentsile and has applications in leisure, exploration, forestry, and humanitarian releif. He's trying to raise funds to bulk order units to sell at an affordable price. If any one's interested you can see his crowd funding site here. It's an exciting concept and from working with him on some pretty amazing treehouse projects he knows his stuff.
  3. Dear all. Can you please offer any advice. I am looking to apply for planning permission to build some barn buildings to help with timber work in 22acre mixed woodland (*mainly undermanaged and overcrowded)... Thinking of 3 structures. 1) shelter for mobile sawmill and dry covered workspace. 2) Big barn to store & maintain machinery & stack drying timber (also double up as bit of a workshop). 3) Barn to act as dry room for workers, and small office with compost toilet. Also could do with a firewood drying barn but think that this could just be a temporary pole barn structure in a field? Can anyone offer any advice on planning permission needed in national parks? Also what should I consider as essential in my buildings? I am felling 5acres of infected larch this winter which I want to process onsite & store for future firewood sales. What size barns do I need to make? Also what do people suggest for roofing options? Many thanks. Doug
