Wildlife And Its Habitat

All our staff are trained to recognise protected wildlife species and where they might live and roost, these can include birds, bats and even badgers. We will undertake an assessment to evaluate what our work will do to adversely affect if any the wildlife around us. We also recognise the importance in preserving older trees and trees under preservation orders and will take great care and advice to avoid any disturbance to such trees.
