Having been planting trees and hedgerows in Jersey since 1937, our local knowledge and experience in this area is unrivalled.


Tree care (including environmentally sensitive tree felling and pruning) 

We offer the following tree services, carried out by our dedicated team of arborists:

  • Crown reduction
  • Raising and thinning

All of our work complies with British standards, fully taking into consideration the associated wildlife and surrounding environment.


Low impact branchage 

We can branchage your hedgerow in a manner which does not damage the tree bark, expose the soil to the elements or cause harm to the local wildlife.

Our branchage techniques are low impact and based on best practice as advised by the Jersey Branchage Group. We aim to improve the well-being of your hedgerows through careful management.
