Tree surgery and tree surveying require specialist skills, training and certification and present specific challenges both in terms of health and safety, community engagement and biodiversity.
It is essential to manage your tree stock safely and at the same time, balance the practical, aesthetic and biodiversity considerations. The Landscape Group can help in many ways.
We have dedicated tree teams at our contracts in Bournemouth, Fenland, Lee Valley Regional Park, Cheshire Peaks and Plains, Dover, London Borough of Redbridge, Newbury, South Staffordshire and Wiltshire.
In addition, our Dorset-based company Banyards offers a wide range of arboricultural services to clients in Dorset and neighbouring counties, and is Arboricultural Association certified.
We have an associate arboricultural advisor who can provide consultancy and surveying on a project specific basis.
Services offered include:
- 24-hour Emergency Call-Out Service
- Pruning, thinning, crown lifting, felling and bracing
- Stump grinding
- Tree replacements, transplanting and planting
- Tree surveys and surveying
- Arboricultural consultancy
- Processing of TPO applications
Our tree work team members will hold the appropriate evidence of training or certificates of competence for their role, and will all be subject to an on-going training programme.
In general the team will share all tasks to encourage individual development and so that the development of the team as a multi-skilled unit does not rely solely upon the particular expertise of any one single member of the team.
However, certain complex tasks that require specific evidence of competence may have to be left to the
individual team member with the appropriate award or qualification.
The AA publication “A Guide to Good Climbing Practice” provides much of the underpinning knowledge for the suite of chainsaw certificates of competence and risk assessment training available in the arboricultural community and so will be adopted by The Landscape Group as best practice.
For each task to be undertaken, our team leader reviews the work site, prepares the dynamic risk assessment and agrees the control measures and method statement that will result in the task being carried out with the minimum risk of harm to persons or property.
Tree brash and green waste are, wherever possible, taken to our green waste processing centres for co-mingling with other green waste feedstocks and conversion to high quality horticultural products for re-use on our contracts.
