Our Commitment to the Environment
Our commitment wherever possible is to mitigate our environmental impact by:
using bio-degradable chainsaw oil; purchasing equipment designed to reduce environmental impact; working within guidelines set out in the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, the Countryside Rights of Way Act 2000, the Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986 and Part III of the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985.
Our commitment is to minimise waste and recycle wherever possible. All brushwood is chipped for use as mulch and timber is stored until donation/sale.
All birds and their nests and eggs are protected by law under the Wildlife and Countryside Act and the recent Countryside and Rights of Way Act. Many other species of animals are also protected i.e. bats and badgers. Central Tree Services routinely undertakes a Habitat Disturbance Assessment at all sites before undertaking any tree work. If protected species or their roosts are discovered whilst undertaking tree work, operatives must stop work and inform their supervisor who will contact the relevant authorities for further advice.
Management and staff of Central Tree Services have been trained in recognising likely bat roosts.
