About Us

Moving large trees requires some expertise, the journey of the Three Tiverton Palms necessitated raised trunk support via broad wooden beams every metre minimising stress from concave trunk contact. The rootballs positioned hard behind the headboard offer maximum rigidity with minimum movement and less wind drying factor. The foliage was gently pulled into a conical envelope and wrapped in breathable membrane to minimise transevaporation during transport.

If the customer desires a tree cutting operation that is detrimental to the health of that tree, we will be obliged to inform the customer the best course of action.

On occasions the best solution is to remove the tree and replant a more suitable species. We can help identify suspect or unsuitable species and advise or implement a program of works, including replacements and planting schemes, producing; Positively the Right Tree for The Right site.

Trees are dynamic and constantly evolving plants, often growing hundreds of years and adapting to many influencing circumstances.

There are many environmental factors surrounding the longevity and success of tree growth, some of which can be altered to improve or slow down development, others of which may not be within the control of the owner.

Changing topography or surrounding infrastructure will often alter the lifespan of most tree species; the tree produces characteristic reaction growth patterns before declining. Certain characteristics and features can be predictable during growth development or at many different stages when the tree is maturing. The important realization is that trees are not inanimate objects; they do not remain the same.

Trees suffer from stress during movement operations and it is recognised that the less time any plant spends out of the growing medium the sooner it will recover, the same physiology also applies to the plant lying horizontal.


The Tiverton palms were dug out on a Saturday morning and already stood up and supported in the Sunday morning. Less than 24 hours from start to finish.

Chartered Professional Status was awarded by the Institute of Chartered Foresters MICFor.
