Working with trees keeps us close to nature on a daily bases. This always reinforces the importance of working in harmony with nature as much as possible. Listed below are some of the ways we do our best to work with the environment.
All our woodchip, timber and green waist gets recycled to biofuel or gets used on farms, stables, golf courses and gardens.
Where possible we use state of the art battery powered tools, this eliminates the burning of petrol and dramatically reduces the noise levels. This also has the benefit of allowing us to work in noise sensitive areas and times. e.g. schools/colleges, densely populated areas, night work.
We use biodegradable oil in all our chainsaws.
Respecting nesting season and keeping a keen eye for badger sets, bats and bees is always very important.
The use of climbing spikes are only used on trees that are being dismantled. Do not let anyone spike your trees unless they are taking the spiked stems out completely. Climbing spikes or spurs are sharp metal ankle wear that a tree climber can use to stab a foot hold into a tree. This opens the tree to infections and pathogens.
