The owner David Allen has been working with trees since 1985. At first working for EFG (Economic Forestry Group), later Tilhill, before completing an N.C. Arboriculture at Myerscough College, Lancashire; followed by an H.N.D. in Arboriculture at Houghall College, Durham. Naturally, all chainsaw operators possess NPTC Certificates of Competence in chainsaw use. Weed control is a vital part of tree establishment. At Wensleydale Tree & Horticultural Services, we possess the relevant NPTC certificate to apply herbicides by knapsack sprayer.
Many trees within the dales are within Conservation Areas. Others are protected by TPO's (Tree Preservation Orders) It's important to clarify what the situation is with your trees. At Wensleydale Tree & Horticultural Services Ltd, we have years of experience in dealing with The Local Planning Authorities and can provide advice as to the legal requirements relating to trees. Forms from the relevant Local Authorities can be provided and completed on behalf of the client.
Where possible, wood products are recycled by the producing of woodchips which can be used as a mulch. Larger wood is used for logs, and supplied throughout the dales. Quality lengths of wood can be milled for use in the furniture trade. Smaller pieces, where suitable are used as blanks for the woodturning profession.
As well as trees we also undertake other horticultural work (see Walls & Fences for further details).
