Environmental Ethos

The conservation and preservation of the environment is of key importance to everyone at The Blue Tree Company. We consider there to be a great responsibility when managing trees and we strive for management practices that allow us to retain trees wherever possible. We advocate reduction rather than removal of trees where possible, and also encourage re-planting A single tree can have a significant impact on the environment that surrounds it. For example, consider a mature oak- it may play host to hundreds of species of insect. An oak’s acorns are a key food source for birds and mammals. Decomposing leaves also have an ecological value, and are a source of food for stag beetles and numerous fungi. Old holes and crevices can be used for nesting birds and bats. All of this in addition to the fact that they produce oxygen and take in carbon dioxide We also like to work closely with schools as we are keen to inspire the next generation in both possible career options and also the care of the environment

Recycling and Waste

At The Blue Tree Company we take all possible steps to prevent pollution, to avoid damage to habitats and reduce our carbon footprint We encourage all of our clients to make use of the materials that result from work to their trees. Logs cut on your property can be seasoned and burnt for fuel with zero transport miles, and neutral carbon emissions. Wood chip produced as a waste material can be recycled as mulch to ameliorate (improve) the soil quality. This is particularly helpful around the base of trees where it acts as a fertilizer and can help to reduce soil compaction Any ‘waste’ that is taken away is re-used by selling as logs and woodchip. Green waste that is not sold is composted and used on landscaping projects We hold an Environment Agency waste carriers licence
