Target Trees Environmental PolicyHere at Target Trees, our commitment to customer care is rivalled only by our relentless regard for the local and national environment. We fully understand and share the concerns of our customers when it comes to doing what’s best for the environment at all levels, which is why we work in accordance with a strict impact-minimising operational policy.
Our goal is to provide industry-leading tree surgery services in a manner that’s both environmentally friendly and sustainable we believe this to be the only acceptable industry standard.
Wildlife and HabitatThe Wild Life and Countryside Act 1981 and Countryside Rights of Way Act 2000 protect a variety of native UK species by law. Here at Target Trees however, we’re committed to working just as proactively and thoughtfully with all wildlife and habitats in mind not only those we are required to consider by law.
Prior to undertaking any job we take on Target Trees carries out a detailed and in-depth survey of both the specifics of the task and the surrounding area. We work tirelessly to pinpoint precise approaches to tree surgery, removal and general maintenance in order to ensure that our actions have the least possible impact on wildlife and habitats. If we believe a job not to be in the best interests of the local environment and its native species, we won’t hesitate to walk away from it.
Preservation and ProtectionOur ultimate goal is to put something positive back into the local environment, as opposed to simply taking away from it. Along with the exploration of re-planting options when and where possible, we also actively encourage the use of dead and discarded tree-matter (stumps, branches etc.) in the creation of new habitats for a variety of native animal species.
We’re also happy to advise on the use of bird boxes as something of a substitution where essential tree maintenance is carried out we’ll even help you fit them, 100 free of charge.
Reuse and Recycle
Absolutely nothing we take away from even the smallest of jobs is allowed to go to waste. Target Trees is relentlessly committed to reusing and recycling all waste matter produced as a result of our work. Whether it’s for use as firewood, garden mulch or simply handed over to the region’s best recycling centres, our opposition to needless waste is total.
Carbon FootprintWe are constantly exploringall practical ways and means by which we can actively reduce our brand’s carbon footprint. Whether it’s use of energy-saving devices around the office, planning and considering all journeys to minimise vehicle use or investing in the latest advances in tree surgery hardware to reduce both power-use and emissions, Target Trees takes carbon-reduction extremely seriously.
Perhaps most importantly of all, we’re proud to operate a team where each member has the same comprehensive training and deep personal regard for all important environmental issues. We never have and never will make a single cut without considering the consequences precisely what separates Target Trees from other tree maintenance brands.
