Our Company Green Policy

Who are we? Wills Tree Services are a professional tree surgery company based in North Devon, we work throughout the counties of Devon, Cornwall & Somerset. We specialize in all aspects of tree work, this includes crown thinning, branch removal, reshaping & all types of tree maintenance; however we do often have to take trees down.

<Why do we have to cut trees down? Taking trees down is a last resort for us, but in some cases trees become decayed & unstable with maturity, some trees have been planted without considering the size they become & the space they require, possibly causing structural damage to buildings, sometimes we have to remove them to make room for construction or development. Whatever the reason trees have to be taken down we are conscious of the fact that trees are a vital asset to us, our landscape & our environment.

What is our company green policy? Using the resources around us, such as making our own leaf mulch, we intend to sow & grow as many native trees as possible, we currently have over 2000 seeds & nuts of Oak, Horse Chestnut, Beech, Rowan, Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Sycamore, Ash & Pines already sown, we are also on the lookout for small saplings that have grown in inappropriate places where they will be driven over, cut with hedge or grass cutting equipment & so on, we can then transplant these into pots to be replanted somewhere they can grow & flourish without restrictions.

It is our ambition to sow & plant 1000 trees every year! This includes properties where we have taken trees down, we will when possible, replant that area with another tree, we will supply trees to whomever wants a tree to plant, this will include domestic properties, communal projects, schools & parks, whatever the purpose, trees from us (subject to availability) are supplied free of charge.

How can you help us? If you have trees that produce nuts, berries or seeds, collect them for us, ideally very soon after they have fallen from the tree.

  • Donate; if you have surplus 9cm x 9cm square pots or 2.5, 3 & 4 litre rose pots (these are much deeper than common plant pots) we would be grateful of them, we also use many bags of good quality compost to mix with our leaf mulch should you have a bag surplus.
  • Gift us; if you would like to send us a gift please ask for our supplier order list, items on this list range from small items like 5" plant marker sticks to larger items such as tree stakes, tree guards and large tree planting buckets. You can decide how much you want to send & anything here would be hugely appreciated, these gifts enable us to supply or plant trees free of charge.
  • Support us; you can follow our progress & keep updated on our company green policy by social media, like our page on Facebook or follow us on Twitter share our posts to your friends so they can tell theirs.

Most importantly; If you have sufficient room for a new tree, please ask us for one, they all need a place to grow and hopefully be part of our landscape for many generations, together we will keep our countryside green!
