  • Thank you for your enquiry regarding the tree outside your property. Unfortunately, at the present time there are no identifiable arboricultural reasons to justify carrying out any works.

    We recommend that you contact BT as they have a Statutory Undertaking as such this enables them to carry out Arboricultural works when it affects their lines or equipment.

    We trust that this answers your query. However, should you require any further information we would be happy to discuss this with you.
