Trees, Forests and Woodlands

Trees and woodlands are a vital component of our landscape, enhancing the environment of our towns and villages and making a positive contribution to our quality of life. In certain situations they are protected by legislation. Trees also help integrate new development into it’s setting, however they can easily be lost or damaged through lack of consideration while development is taking place.
