To support the planning advice services provided by Studio Bloem, we developed a number of woodland and tree planting matrices in coordination with East Devon Tree Officers. These planting matrices set out to enable the delivery of a long-term healthy woodlands or parklands whilst providing an immediate impact. The various matrices include a mixture of species and variety of plant stock ages enabling the delivery of a more resilient and healthy planting scheme. Based on how planting naturally forms each matrix aims to deliver a different long-term outcome. Once planted each matrix will require minimal maintenance in accordance with BS 8545:2014 Trees: from nursery to independence in the landscape.


These matrices have been provided to planning application applicants to aid the delivery of more resilient Green Infrastructure.
