Rob Steed Tree Care adheres strictly to and encourages E.U Habitat Regulations 1997 & Wildlife Act 2000 and promotes eco-arboriculture. We aim to use when available biodegradable diesel fuel ‘Eco 5%’ for vehicles and bio / vegetable oil lubricants for chainsaws, tools and machines. All arboricultural green waste is recycled locally
All arboriculture work carried is in line with European and British Standards BS3998 ‘Recommendations for Tree Work’ and the 'European Tree Pruning Guide' when undertaking tree work. By regular attendance at professional seminars we keep up to date with latest arboricultural skills, current new regulations and legislation. We can then pass this knowledge onto our clients.
