Treework Environmental Practice is proud to announce that it has become an Associate Member of The Tree Council, the UK umbrella body for organisations concerned with tree care, planting and conservation. Amongst its many activities the Tree Council educates and engages people through National Tree Week and through heritage conservation initiatives such as Green Monument campaign for tree protection and the Hedge Tree campaigns.
Becoming an associate member of the Tree Council is a natural progression from our existing work with the National Tree Safety Group, Middlesex University (Decision and Risk Management Department), the Forestry Commission (on climate change adaptation) and the Trees and Design Action Group (conservation, design and planning for large canopy trees in cities).
The Tree Council recognises the fundamental role of trees in their contribution to the unique quality of the British landscape, to our towns and cities, being essential to our biodiversity heritage and to human well-being and survival
Through its association with Tree Council, Treework Environmental Practice wishes to contribute to good management practice, conservation and the celebration of trees. We hope that as an associate Member we will support the Tree Council in improving the awareness of the benefits of trees and to influence government policy and good professional practice.
As a company we pride ourselves on our innovation and we have invested in improving the awareness and understanding of the contribution that trees make to our environment, from the habitat that old trees provide to the ways in which large trees help to “climate proof” our urban environment.
Treework Environmental Practice hopes to support the Tree Council, whose strength lies in its influence and breadth of involvement, with a unique ability to promote co-operation between professionals and mobilise the tree sector to engage at a political level to affect policy.
