Veteran Tree Management

The UK contains Europe’s largest collection of ancient and veteran trees and as well as providing us with a glimpse of historic landscapes, complex interrelationships develop over time between these trees and other plants and organisms. Down to Earth are passionate about the cultural and historical significance of ancient and veteran trees and the management techniques required to preserve, restore and maintain them.


As specialists in providing veteran tree management, we have the necessary skill-set and range of experience to appropriately administer such techniques and have been undertaking several ongoing veteran tree contracts for the last few years including managing the veteran tree stock at Ashtead Common for the City of London Corporation, and delivering the 10 year veteran tree project at Dawcombe Nature Reserve for the Surrey Wildlife Trust.

As well as having a team of experienced operatives to deliver your project, our in-house consultant can provide full tree stock, and ecological surveys including clear work specifications and method statements to ensure the works are undertaken correctly and sympathetically.

Veteran and ancient trees should be held in high regard if only for their social value and great ecological importance. Like us, trees need a little extra care when they grow old so that they are properly preserved, restored and maintained. This is where we step in.
