TREE SURGERY WILDLIFE POLICY
Working with nature every day, we have a sound approach to the environment. Often working alongside ecologists, we make sure that birds, bats, newts and badgers are not at risk whilst tree work is carried out.
We are also very pleased and proud to say that all of our waste is 100% recycled.
BIRD NESTING SEASON
There is a common misconception that all tree surgery in the UK must stop between the months of March and September and that simply isn’t true.
According to current British legislation we have a responsibility to be extra vigilant when cutting trees and hedges during the summer months to ensure that we don’t disrupt nesting birds and other wildlife.
As professional arborists it is down to us to assess, record and confirm that any tree surgery carried out will not disturb actively nesting wildlife.
We always (regardless of month) conduct visual surveys of the trees and hedges when visit site to quote and then again when we begin work – if we spot an active nest of any kind, we postpone the necessary tree surgery until we are sure the nest is no longer in use.
It’s just common sense!
As many of us know an advert alone does not guarantee quality of work, that it will be carried out safely or that it needs to be carried out at all. Simply stripping trees of all their branches or reducing them to a mutilated stump has no arboricultural justification and in most cases acts to highlight the work of an untrained or inexperienced trader.
If tree work is not done properly, it could lead to:
• Injury to people, including the untrained operators.
• Property and infrastructure being put at serious risk.
• Irrevocable damage to trees – that have taken many years to grow.
• Loss of valuable tree stocks and wildlife habitat.
• Unnecessary and increased ongoing maintenance costs for the owner.
• Increased or invalid insurance cover.
The above occur all too regularly as a result of poor quality, ill-advised and badly executed tree work. Tree surgery requires a high degree of technical competence and an in-depth knowledge of trees and their needs. Supported by training, experience, the right equipment and a respect for the environment, we will only undertake necessary works using well trained and competent arborists.
Different trees have different needs and at Springwood Trees, we understand that. We offer entirely bespoke, site specific services from tree surgery to site clearance and tree reports to wildlife habitats.
The health of your trees depends a lot on how they are maintained and we understand that it is not possible for you to do all the work by yourself. Our tree care services are designed to ensure that you never have to worry about your trees again. Whether you have a tree whose crown is taking up too much space or you’d like a owl box erecting on your favourite trunk, we can take care of it for you - professionally and safely.
All of our operations are fully risk-assessed and our tree surgeons are trained and certificated in their field of work. In addition to this we ensure all staff are regularly reassessed and undergo five yearly refresher training. All operations are audited either annually or five yearly, (both internally and externally) to ensure we fully comply with all current and new legislation requirements, guaranteeing the most up to date operation available. All tree surgeons are trained in arboricultural first aid, in addition to which we have certificated arborists for use of Mechanical Elevated Work Platforms (M.E.W.P), Aerial Rescue, Chipper and Stump grinding, and much more. All of which allows us to provide a complete and comprehensive service to all of our customers.
