Tree waste recycling

There are few industries that can claim to be as environmentally sound as the arboricultural industry. We provide a valuable public service by reducing risks to the public and property by managing dead or damaged trees, and can find an end use for all of our waste products. Granted, we use fossil fuels to power our vehicles and some tools, but that aside, we can be rightly proud of our environmental credentials from tree waste recycling.

The video features our highly-portable Greenmech chipper, which is small enough to be wheeled through most gateways. In this case, we were removing or pruning several dead and damaged trees from a small woodland garden at East Knighton, Dorset. All of the larger logs are being processed as firewood, medium-sized branches have been stacked neatly into habitat piles for invertebrates, and all smaller waste is chipped straight back onto the woodland floor to add to the natural process of deadwood decay. It can also be added to compost heaps to balance nitrogen-rich materials such as food waste or grass clippings.

In addition, to offset our carbon footprint, we plant many trees on behalf of our clients – 30 Alder trees in this garden, and over 1,400 native trees this month already!
