Tree Management, Advisory & Woodland Services

Pro active Tree Management


Managing trees proactively, rather than reactively is the most beneficial and cost effective form of long term tree management.

  • We offer professional, objective, impartial advice on all forms of tree management in Cornwall and the South West; the right advice can result in significant savings and will ensure that your trees become or are maintained as assets not liabilities.
  • Prior to engaging the services of arboricultural contractors, we ensure that our clients are well-informed and understand what should or should not be done in accordance to industry best practice guidance and statutory regulations.
  • We can give an accurate idea of what associated costs of any works may be or, if required, facilitate the tendering process using bona-fide contractors.

Trees and Risk Management


Owners of trees have a statutory legal obligation to ensure that people and property are not put at any unnecessary, or foreseeable, risk of injury or harm by their trees. However, the duty of care required by law is that of ‘a reasonable and prudent landowner’ and only requires a proportionate approach to risk management.

  • We offer an informed, non-hysterical approach to risk management, through balancing the statistically low risk posed by trees against the wide range of benefits they provide.
  • We assist our clients in effectively dispensing their duty of care in a considered, proportionate and cost-efficient manner, without compromising the value of their trees
  • We can help with neighbour disputes and advise on the extent of your legal obligations.
