Your legal duty of care

Damage involving wood decay and loss of wood strength may require immediate action to avoid potentially dangerous situations.  The owner of a tree has a legal duty of care for others should a decayed tree or part of it damage or injure a third party.  See the article here from Aviva “Liability for Hazardous Trees


We were delighted to receive these testimonials: 

from Kieran Pierce following the removal of 50x 50' conifer and leylandii trees and hedging in August.
“I’m very happy to recommend William Warden and his tree team. What a great
bunch of guys – it just works with the team all being ambassadors for William’s business –
courteous, thoughtful, empathetic to the environment and not noisy. And, of course, highly skilled
in their work. Good job done. Thank you. If anyone would like to speak to me personally, then
happy to do so”

from Jonathan Shortt, Potterne “I have just used Conservation Contractors for a second time to fell a willow over the pond, prune a eucalyptus and carry out a reduction on a walnut tree. They turn up when they say they will and just get on with what they have to do. They are completely professional but at the same time friendly and informal.  They cut up the usable timber into logs so I now have plenty of firewood and mulched the brushwood for which my chickens are very grateful. I can thoroughly recommend them”.
