Which Areas Do You Cover

We are based in East Devon and cover all East Devon and Exeter areas. We also cover West Dorset and South West Somerset.

Our geographical area extents to Charmouth in the East, extending down to around Teignmouth in the West and extends northwards to Crediton, across towards Tiverton and then over towards Chard in South West Somerset.

How Long Are Your Lead Times?

We aim to keep our lead times as low as possible, normally we can undertake works within two weeks. Depending on the type and size of job it is often possible to fit it in sooner than this.

We are working in the Exeter and East Devon area most days, so it is often possible to add jobs to our work schedule.

Do You Take The Waste Away?

Yes we do.

We always remove all waste unless requested not to, or there is a reason that we can not and this has been agreed by the client. An example of this may be working in an area that is a significant distance away from a vehicle accessible point. This is always agreed beforehand. This situation is very rare.

If we are removing trees sometimes clients wish to keep to timber for burning, again this is something that is agreed beforehand.

Our Property Is In A Conservation Area

Our house is in a Conservation Area and we need work doing.

If your property lies in a Conservation Area and you would like work on a tree you need to give your local council Notification Of Proposed Works. This is applicable to all trees that have a diameter of 75mm or more measured at a height of 1.5m, or if reducing the number of trees in a group for the benefit of the remaining trees, the size is slightly greater at 100mm at 1.5m. This situation is for thining trees in a copse or similar.

There are some exemptions to this however. The mainteance pruning of fruit trees. Works for a statutory obligation.

Hedges to some degree are exempt but not for all situations. Maintenance hedge trimming is fine. Large height reductions may need a Notification, or any significant work to a significant hedge of interest. For example, ancient Devon bank hedge row. Individual trees [ as opposed to trees that have been maintained at a set hedge height ] that make up a hedge row would also need a Notification given.

Giving the Notification gives the Council the chance to apply a Tree Preservation Order TPO if it considers the tree or hedgerow worthy of protection.

Exeter and East Devon both have large areas covered by Conservation Area status. We can check if your property lies in one.

Our Tree Has A Tree Preservation Order

If you have a tree protected by a Tree Preservation Order you must not have any work done to it without permission from the planning department of your local council. This includes “Just cutting back a few branches” as we are asked very often.

Tree Preservation Orders are there to protect significant trees or trees that provide ammenity value.
Tree Preservation Orders can apply to single trees, groups of trees or whole areas or hedgerows.

East Devon & Exeter both have large amounts of trees and areas that are covered by Tree Preservation Orders.

You can check to see if one of your tyrees or hedges is protected by a Tree Preservation Order by clicking the links below.

Exeter Tree Preservation Order Map

For East Devon you need to fill in the form, this will then take you to the Tree Preservation Order Map.

It perhaps should be noted that filling in the form will in our opinion alert EDDC to the fact that you are considering tree works. A Tree Preservation Order can be applied to a tree or area at any time.

We have access to the Tree Preservation Order map without giving property details.

Ash Dieback Removal East Devon

Ash Dieback Removal East Devon & Exeter Areas.

Ash dieback is affecting ash trees across the UK, a fungal disease that leads to rapid decline and failure of ash trees.
Ash trees that become infected, rapidly become unsafe, shedding limbs with the possibility of total failure.
Due to the nature of the disease, the tree becomes very brittle and unstable.

It is regarded in the industry that these trees should not be climbed for dismantle and removal, they should be accessed by the use of cherry pickers (MEWP – Mobile Elevated Work Platforms) or removal by machines.

We are able to provide removal for any ash dieback infected tree.
