Professional tree surgeons (Arboriculturalist) are  concerned about the environment and are not  just chopping down trees. Normally trees are  removed for specific reasons governed primarily  by health and safety issues, affecting public or  condition and long lasting benefit of the trees.  When these operations are necessary, we make  every effort to convert the by product of  generated waste into  usable products that can  be of benefit to the local community -  compost,  firewood, wood chips, hedging stakes, fencing  poles etc.    We use environmentally friendly consumables  such as biodegradable chain oil especially  important when working around ponds, rivers  and streams. Hand saws are often used in favour  of engine powered tools in order to achieve  clean accurate pruning cuts, as well as less noise  and air pollution.
