What is woodland management?

About 80% of UK lumber is imported, and as a consequence there’s a push toward managing neglected woodlands often in private ownership. The idea is to activate management programs on them, mitigate against the increasing carbon footprint associated with importing wood, and to use UK wood instead, stimulating the domestic market.

Sustainable woodland management is a crucial part of land management, ensuring a balance between conservation, biodiversity, and recreational access. While it may seem counterproductive removing trees from established woodland, doing so can actually help the land to thrive, and this is the goal of our woodland management services.

The management of established areas of trees normally in close confinement within urban environments. The temptation is often to leave urban woodlands to overgrow but this leads to an unusable and problematic woodland.

Regular work to encourage a natural and sustainable woodland ecosystem involves techniques such as the selective thinning and felling of trees to allow more light to penetrate through the high canopy to encourage more woodland flora. Once thinned out, bulbs, small shrubs and grass can grow with minimal restrictions.

Is woodland ever removed?

Occasionally, due to an ever greater demand on the housing stock and  an increasing need for cemeteries, we may need to fell sections of  woodland. In such cases, we liaise very closely with the local authority, environmentalists and developers conducting extensive assessments, so that there is a minimum of disturbance to the local wildlife and the remaining tree stock.

Is there demand for woodland management in London?

Yes. As well as woodland areas in London boroughs there are also wooded areas on private estates in need of management.

From start to finish, Trees UK has been excellent to deal with: friendly, punctual, professional, very helpful and competitively priced.

They made what could have been a stressful day very straightforward and the team that took our tree down were absolutely fantastic (as are all in the office)!

– Anthony, tree felling

The whole process from quote to final invoice was seamless. Everyone was polite and knowledgable and arrived in the times they said they would.

The actual tree works were carried out really efficiently, we recapped what was happening and then they just got on with it. They worked really tidily and afterwards checked we were happy with everything.

– Hannah, tree felling & pruning

These are just two of our happy customers.

Chris Brason July 2021

Trees-UK have recently completed work for me, including removing a large Leylandii Cypress, reducing the height of six others, crowning an ash tree and reducing in height and size a number of laurel and holly trees. The job was undertaken by a team of four who were all really pleasant, polite and professional. They arrived on time and completed the work in one day, including clearing all residual branches and timber, leaving the garden clean and tidy. I am happy to recommend them and will certainly use their services again. In particular Angelo and Matt who both visited individually to discuss the work were helpful in suggesting the best. most cost-effective way of dealing with the trees. Their pricing was easy to understand and, in my opinion, competitive. An excellent local Company who will undoubtedly be successful due to their attitude and the quality of the people who work there.

Jeremy Gibbon June 2021

Very positive experience all the way through. A small business that acts with clarity, acts as they say they will, friendly, respectful and reliable. Such a change compared to many other experiences in Bromley over the past 8 years here.

Keith Saunders May 2021

Good price and great service. A thorough survey was undertaken including photos and listening to what we wanted to achieve. Tree surgeons arrived on time, were careful and very tidy and achieved what we were after. Very happy to recommend Trees UK of Bromley!

Ralph White May 2021

Efficient, friendly and tidy crew who know what they are doing. I was especially pleased you were able to sort out the local council stuff although I knew this was not going to be contentious

Zara Sloane May 2021

Trees UK and the team we had were so professional and skilled, our giant oak has been trimmed back so that more light now comes in to the garden, while still preserving the beauty of the tree. The team couldn't have been more accommodating and responsive to any questions I had and left the garden tidier than it was when they arrived! It's also worth noting how well they managed and considered my neighbours in the process. I couldn't recommend them more highly.

Ben Howlett May 2021

Excellent service and delivered within timescales with no mess at all. Given that we live in a London terrace, equipment to access the house was found on the same day. The submission to the council in a conservation area was granted too. Highly recommend service.

Tony April 2021

The guys arrived punctually, were polite, friendly, carried out the work exactly as agreed, and cleaned up afterwards. Will definitely use Trees UK again, and would highly recommend.
