Helping the environment
We understand the importance of the preservation of the environment, and by using the latest accepted practices and equipment, we aim to combine the management of land, biodiversity and other environmental resources to meet your specific needs.
Many animals and habitats are now protected by law under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and Countryside Rights of Way Act 2000. Some of the guidelines are specific to, for example, bats, nesting birds and badgers.
We use the guidelines to undertake a wildlife survey of your site, to ensure any nesting birds or protected species are identified, and how this may affect the proposed work.
Where possible and appropriate, we encourage preservation in order to minimise the impact on the local bio-diversity.
Where this is not appropriate, we encourage re-planting.
We aim to prevent pollution of land, air and water. Should we need to refuel on site, we use spill mats to protect the area.
We promote the re-use of waste materials, such as logs and wood chip
All other green waste is disposed of responsibly at green waste recycling facilities in compliance with Environment Agency guidelines.
A low carbon footprint
We always aim to maximise fuel efficiency:
Through planning we give consideration to efficient travel routes
Vehicles and equipment are turned off when not in use
Vehicles and equipment are regularly serviced to maintain efficiency
We are working towards a paperless office – we promote use of electronic quotes and invoices where possible.
