Environmental Awareness

At Tree FX Quality Tree Management we are very aware that we are on the cutting edge of environmental change. Our work is directly impacting the local environment and because of this we take our responsibility to ensure its long-term viability very seriously.

Some of the initiatives that we have implemented include:

Paperless office systems: over the years our administration systems have been converted to incorporate as much electronic and cloud-based information collection as we possibly can. All our quotes and invoices are sent via email. Our job management system is cloud based so there is no need for paper “job sheets “or “work sheets”.

Safety documents and record keeping: all our JSA’s (Job Site Safety Assessments) are done on laminated reusable sheets and then photographed and saved in the cloud. All SWMS (Safe Work Method Statements) and insurance certificate of currencies are all recorded electronically.

Tree retention: we encourage the retention of all trees where possible and actively encourage the retention of habitat. It often takes some smart thinking to be able to reduce the risk of trees around our homes whilst retaining them. This saves trees from being cut down unnecessarily, and can also save you - the customer, money! We feel that is a true “win-win” outcome. Good for you and good for the environment.

Material recycling: is a high priority and salvage of logs is prioritised over them being cut for firewood or put though woodchipper. All Green waste materials are processed on site where possible and always managed in environmentally sensitive ways. We use local recycling centres to reduce transportation costs and impacts.

Vehicle maintenance: our vehicles are serviced regularly to reduce emissions. We have varying sized vehicles and plant to always optimise efficiency and suitability to job requirements to align with our vision of minimal environmental impact.

Chemical use: considerations are given to fuel/oil products to ensure they are low impact.
Herbicide use is strictly in line with directions and only used where necessary by trained staff.

Our commitment to the vision of the low environmental impact goes as far as using environmentally sustainable toilet paper and cleaning products within our office space.

In addition to this we have Environmental Policies and have regular toolbox talks within our team to discuss ways that we can continue to minimise our impact.
