The high-quality service that we offer is driven by our lifelong passion for trees. Our proprietor, Steve Launchbury, is passionate about trees and plants, which has seen him train at Kew Gardens and gain the Kew Diploma in Horticulture in the early 80s. He has excelled in all aspects of tree surgery ever since.
The environment that we live in is increasingly under threat. SL TreeCare Ltd is a professional and responsible company that aims to be environmentally conscientious in all aspects of daily work. We aim to reduce pollution and use resources as effectively as we can in all aspects of our work.
SL TreeCare Ltd complies with published codes of practice and legislation regarding the environment. Wherever possible, waste timber and vegetation is converted to woodchip for recycling as mulch, with timber being converted to firewood wherever possible. Our team of professionals always aim to achieve the most efficient way of working, by minimising vehicle miles and the unnecessary use of fuel. Our policy is regularly monitored and updated as required.
