Of course. Every tree surgeon in our experienced team is qualified to carry out tree surgery, stump grinding, hedge cutting and firewood seasoning services. This includes City & Guilds training and NPTC certifications. We are also proud members of the Forest Contracting Association (FCA).
What is a Tree Preservation Order?
A Tree Preservation Order (TPO) is a government legislation applied to protect specific tree species and trees in conservation areas. If you have a tree with a TPO on it, your local Woking authority will need to be contacting for permission to carry out any work on it. When consent is given, this may be subject to certain conditions.
Is your firewood of a good quality?
Yes. Our firewood is sourced from our work as tree surgeons and sold as part of our range of tree surgery, stump grinding and hedge cutting services. We store timber for one year to dry it out so it becomes perfect for use as firewood. Our seasoned logs come in a variety for sizes ranging from eight to thirty inches and can be delivered straight to your door.
