Nicholsons are able to offer a range of arboriculture services tailored to the challenges posed by each individual tree.



Arboriculture focuses on the management and maintenance of individual trees. Trees are an important asset that need to be managed in order to improve safety and enhance the value of land as well as improve the overall appearance of a site. You will already be aware of the positive contribution that trees make to the wider landscape, whether visually, ecologically, culturally, financially or a combination of all these elements.

Trees provide an important amenity value and our end-to-end service is designed to offer professional guidance on how to manage and preserve the landscape and environment in which we all live and work. We provide innovative solutions to both simple and complex issues in this area.
