  • Aragon Direct Services manage Peterborough City Council's tree stock in line with the formally adopted Trees and Woodlands Strategy.
    As such, we inspect all trees at least once every 3 years in terms of health and safety.

    There is currently no arboricultural justification to carry out any works at this time. .
    Although Bees are not a protected species they do provide a vital ecological function so we would not typically prune or remove a tree for that reason.
