The team at D. Howick Tree Surgery has a range of modern tree and forestry services available for customers and clients in the West Sussex area. With the notable exception of the satisfaction we gain from helping home and landowners in areas such as Horsham and Midhurst, timber is very much the fruit of our labour. Tree surgery is a phrase that covers most of our standard domestic and commercial services.
Forestry services usually refer to larger commercial projects such as site clearances and woodland management.
We have accredited LANTRA and NPTC tree surgeons on our team, with the appropriate City & Guilds qualifications, to help you with all aspects of arboriculture. Our company promotes a culture of environmental care and sustainability. Materials derived from our tree surgery, timber extraction and forestry services undergo recycling for secondary use.
The majority of timber recycled from our forestry services finds its way back into the homes of our Horsham, Midhurst and West Sussex customers as woodchip, mulch, logs and firewood.
Tree Surgery and Woodland Management
D. Howick Tree Surgery reminds prospective customers that there is one main difference between tree surgery and woodland management. Tree surgery focuses on the formative care, establishment and removal of individual trees. Woodland management is a practice used to establish, manage and remove trees in crops. Many of the practices used for each service are the same. The scale of the work usually separates one from the other.
Woodland management has close links with our forestry services and usually requires a detailed plan that enables customers and clients to make grant applications.
The production of timber brings the two together. We process trunks and limbs derived from crown work, tree felling and woodland site clearances in the West Sussex area, making them available to the public. Homeowners in areas such as Horsham and Midhurst can use D. Howick Tree Surgery for seasoned logs, firewood, biomass fuel and landscaping products.
D. Howick Tree Surgery uses crane-fed machinery designed for biomass chip production. Powered by a tractor, the machinery uses the crane-fed system to increase production. We create woodchip to G30 biomass standards with equipment that processes timber of up to 16 inches in diameter. Homeowners use G30 woodchip to power biomass boilers.
Biomass chipping is one of our key forestry services and one which works particularly well alongside site clearances, woodland management and timber extraction.
