Thank you for sorting the trees out. Really pleased with them and the workmen were brilliant.
Anthony, Bamber Bridge, October 2017
Regarding the cut back of overhanging trees, the job was done yesterday to our satisfaction. Two grand lads who did a superb job and left everything clean and tidy. Many thanks.

How we work
I have always considered the practical arboricultural work, fundamentally, a problem solving activity. it has a finite number of tools and methods that can be applied however these can continually be renewed and refreshed in new ways, to solve any arboricultural problem encountered.
This problem solving framework rests within a structure that takes into account serious personal and public concerns of safety. We reduce risks associated with our work by employing a proven and repeatable methodology based upon health and safety regulations.
These two elements of our work (I say ‘our’ because this is team work) are bound together with a simple respect and appreciation of both trees and aesthetics, and professional output and customer satisfaction.
As a consequence of working with these practices and methods, an innate risk assessment and moral obligation develop; this is focused on both the immediate surroundings and the structural integrity of the tree/trees at hand.
Visual tree inspections are done as an automatic response to the site and work we are faced with. These visual tree inspections are for the purpose of finding apparent defects or indications of possible defects; this is important both in how we propose solutions to the task at hand and, in the severest sense, reporting or dealing with dangerous situations immediately.
Liaising and working with people is central to our work. We more often than not have multiple people or customers who are invested in, or have certain expectations of, the work that will be done.
The tree work has to be done within strict arboricultural practice parameters, laid down in the British Standards. Arboriculture is, the management of trees with people.
