Tree planting season is here and in full swing. We have started our planting for the London Borough of Barnet, deploying a number of teams to plant 60 semi mature trees in the parkland and car parking areas around the Barnet Copthall Leisure Centre. This is alongside the new Saracens RFC stadium on Champions Way so a few of the team brought their rugby boots along – just in case!

There were two tree officers on site during the work and both were female. It’s great to see more females getting involved in the arb industry. Long may it continue.

Our trees are planted with tree watering bags, to help give them the best possible start.

Earlier, I mentioned the ‘planting season’. We tend to plant throughout the winter months when the trees are dormant. Of course, you can plant trees all year round but they tend to get better established during the winter. This does mean that from September on we’re kept very busy as tree planting contractors.

Another project we’ve just completed is in Knightsbridge, outside the 5* Park Tower Hotel. Central London tree planting projects are always a challenge as we have to transport large trees through busy traffic and sometimes need to close roads whilst we carry out the work.

Do let us know if you have any arb jobs or tree planting requirements. We’re always happy to hear from you. And remember, we provide a safe and reliable service as tree planting contractors, but also carry out stump grinding, root pruning and complete stump removal. In addition, as professional hedge suppliers we can provide instant hedges to screen your property, instantly!
