Veteran Tree Care In Shrewsbury
Take a look at exactly what our veteran tree care service involves
There are at least 180,000 veteran trees in the UK, but with some estimates suggesting that as few as 1% of veteran trees remain compared with 200 years ago, it is more important than ever that these precious trees receive the care and attention they deserve.
We provide a complete range of veteran tree care services to keep your older trees healthy, well-maintained, and, where necessary, to manage their decline in a way that maximises their remaining lifespan.
Veteran trees often have different care needs to their younger counterparts, utilising techniques such as;
- Root investigation and excavation using air spading
- Management of the land surrounding the veteran tree
- Risk assessment
- Minimal, sensitive pruning where required
- Retrenchment pruning
Our experienced team will be happy to talk you through our veteran tree care services - get in touch today to discuss your requirements.
Our approach to veteran tree care
- Every veteran and ancient tree is different, and we always take a holistic approach to maintaining and managing these precious trees
- Our work would usually begin with a site visit, to assess the tree itself, and to understand your goals for managing the tree
- Together we can agree a management plan that fully meets the requirements of both tree and owner
