South Coast Tree Care is committed to minimising the impact its activities have on both the local and global environment. This is done by taking all possible steps to prevent pollution, to avoid damage to habitats, and to reduce its carbon footprint.
We take all steps to minimize risk to employees, customers and the public, and also to wildlife.
Nesting birds, their nests and eggs are protected by law. Many other species such as badgers and bats are also protected. We work within the guidelines set out in the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, and the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (CROW).
We promote reduction rather than removal of trees, where possible, and also encourage re-planting.
We promote the re-use of waste materials, by selling our waste wood as logs for fuel, or donating it as wood chip.
All other green waste is sent to green waste recycling facilities for composting, to minimise use of landfill.
