Three Shires offer mechanised and manual planting options. We can cater for any requirement from small landscape scheme creation to large scale production reforestation.
Our mechanical planting systems enable us to reduce the time-frame required when compared with manual planting operations.
In late season planting, this can make the difference between job completion prior to the transplants awakening from dormancy.
Where larger scale and semi mature transplants are required we will usually incorporate auger preparation of planting site, we plant to enable efficient distribution of transplants, compost and protection materials onto any site
Three Shires in-house team of specialist Arborists perform Tree Translocation for a vast size of Tree sizes using specialist machinery and equipment.
Trees or Woodland Translocation is carried out according to age and likelihood of re-establishment. Three Shires Arborists will carry out a Tree inspection, and ensure the grounds of the new location help the Tree to thrive.
Three Shires Arborists specialise in Woodland Thinning services that will benefit the remaining trees to grow to their maximum potential.
Thinning reduces Tree growth competition, which if left, would risk the Tree growth quality.
When there are more than one species of tree on site, DNA testing of roots can potentially identify the origin. However, differentiating between roots and individual trees is not possible where trees are cloned, have grown from suckers or are grafted.
Three Shires can provide expert advice prior to sampling so that the cost of inappropriate tests can be avoided.
Three Shires professional Tree Surgeons provide efficient and comprehensive Tree Maintenance to promote good Tree Health.
A by-product of Arboriculture and Forestry is residue wood waste.
