About Us

I began working in a tree nursery carrying out tree planting and maintenance.  As part of the OND Arboriculture course at Merrist Wood College I spent a year in Somerset with Durston Woodlands. I have also completed the Tech. Cert. (Arbor A) and an FdSc Arboriculture.  Andy Rowse.

  • we use hand saws where possible, especially for pruning and tree surgery for both accuracy of work and the benefit of reducing noise, fumes and use of hydro-carbons.
  • We use some battery powered equipment such as hedge cutters charged using renewable energy.
  • We use plant oil for the chainsaws which is less polluting for the environment and for the operators.
  • We compost woodchip for use as a mulch or can leave it on site for the customers use.
  • We can add value to timber by using a planking machine, or cut up suitable firewood into logs.
  • We prefer to work within a 15 mile radius reducing our carbon footprint and allowing more time on site.
  • We use local businesses as suppliers and to maintain our machinery where possible.

Health and Safety at work Act 1974: we maintain the highest possible health and safety standard and comply to all recommended health and safety requirements.
