Recycling

All of our tree prunings, are recycled by ourselves and the recycled compost is then used throughout our parks.

Our aims

  • It is our aim to only cut down trees which are damaged, diseased or causing potential harm or damage to neighbouring properties or members of the public
  • We aim to replace each tree removed with a new tree at a suitable location.
