We understand the importance of trees and their place in
and environment. .
It is also our policy to leave (where possible) retain fallen
tree trunks to
provide new habitats for wildlife.
Some species of trees can only be worked on at certain times
of the year as well as certain types of pruning activity.
We will advise where appropriate and schedule work accordingly
to ensure the health of the tree
undertake a Habitat
Disturbance Assessment at all sites before undertaking
any tree work.
Each team has a member who has attended a Bats Awareness
Course and can identify potential bat roots during their
on site and pre pruning risk assessment. If a protected
species such as bats (or other species) are suspected, work
will be postponed pending further investigation and advise
from the relevant expert.
We operate our
services in full compliance with the Wildlife
and Countryside Act 1981 and the recent Countryside
and Rights of Way Act (2000).
We use bio-degradable chainsaw oil and purchase equipment
designed to reduce environmental impact.
Our commitment is to use efficient fuel machinery and vehicles,
waste and recycle wherever possible.
All brushwood is chipped for use as mulch.
