Planting and planting schemes

Planting is a very important part of the tree services that we offer; contributing to the enhancement and beauty of gardens, whilst also providing important wildlife habitats in both urban and rural settings. Wessex Tree Surgeons provide specifications for planting which comply to the relevant British Standards.

Common planting undertaken by Wessex Tree Surgeons include:

Replacement planting
The planting of trees to replace felled trees. Where consent to remove trees is subject to statutory constraints, conditional replacement planting is specified by Local Planning Authorities.

Planting of semi-mature trees
Whether you're a domestic or commercial client or you work within the public sector, planting of semi-mature trees is an effective way to provide an immediate impact on the landscape.

Hedge planting
Planting a hedge can be an inexpensive way of providing an attractive boundary as well as providing structure to the garden. Hedges also adds further interest to gardens and provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, particularly nesting birds.

Woodland planting schemes
Woodland planting schemes involves the planting of transplants in a design matrix. This is carried out under the advice and supervision of the silvicultural consultant at Wessex Tree Surgeon. Woodland planting schemes are often completed using tree shelters and tanalised support stakes.

You can also approach us for hedge trimming, veteran tree care and arboricultural consultancy in Lymington, Hampshire, Devon, Dorset and New Forest. For more information, get in touch.
