Arboricultural Management

It's hard to imagine a world without trees, which is why Arboricultural Management is so important. As well as being beautiful, trees are essential to their local and global environment. 

Often referred to as 'the lungs of the earth', trees help combat climate change - absorbing carbon and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere through photosynthesis. At a local level, trees play a major part in providing natural, sustainable drainage. In urban areas they diffuse noise, reduce pollution and soften an otherwise stark landscape, adding to the value of the human environment.
