    Customer Reviews....

    Rick's company came to clear my mother's horrendously overgrown garden. He cleared all the over hanging tree branches and cut a large Leylandi hedge, reducing it in height and width. Cut back shrubs and cleared all old debris out of the garden leaving it all clean  tidy and in the neighbours garden too.

    Very reasonably priced for an amazing job well done.       Alison & John McAuliffe

    Rick and his team cleared 3 large trees in our garden, the team were on time, professional and tidy.
    Thanks for a job well done.      Bal Singh

    Tree Preservation Orders (TPO) - Useful Information & Links

    What is a Tree Preservation Order?

    A Tree Preservation Order is an order made by a local planning authority to protect specific trees, groups of trees or woodlands in the interests of amenity.

    It prohibits:

    • cutting down
    • uprooting
    • lopping
    • topping
    • wilful damage
    • wilful destruction

    of trees without the local planning authority’s written consent. If consent is given, it can be subject to conditions which have to be followed. In the Secretary of State’s view, cutting roots is also a prohibited activity and requires the authority’s consent.

    On the right we have listed some of the local Leicestershire Borough council links that may be useful to find out whether you trees are protected by a conservation area or Tree Preservation Order (TPO).

    Common Tree Diseases and Pests


    Is your tree looking under the weather?

    Sometimes you will need a little help determining the cause of why your tree isn't looking at it's best.  There are hundreds of fungal & bacterial diseases, pests such as beetles, ash dieback, acute oak decline, sawflys & ringspot just to name a few. A qualified tree surgeon can help you with this, and it may not be as bleak as it once seemed. Ideally, we would advise you to let us inspect the tree as soon as you notice it deteriorating. Once we have inspected the tree we are able to establish whether we can treat it, or whether we have to take more drastic measures. We always do our upmost to save a tree rather than take it down.
