Here at East Devon Tree Surgeons, we pride ourselves in ensuring that our customers receive a first class service.
Using our extensive knowledge and experience, we can tailor our services to suit your exact requirements to provide not only an excellent service but also at a competitive price.. We don’t add in any hidden extras as some other contractors do – if you don’t need it we won’t charge for it.
If any other equipment is required to complete your job, we will ensure this is quoted for prior to commencement of the work, and all will be handled by us, so you only have to deal one company. We are incredibly flexible; working with you to ensure that we exceed your expectations and keep any inconvenience to an absolute minimum.
Currently we are not VAT registered and have the ability to take payments via credit/debit card (excluding American Express).
Tree preservation orders and conservation areas
Some trees are protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) which is an order made by a local planning authority to prevent the felling, uprooting or any willful damage to the protected tree. If any work is carried out without permission, you could face up to £20,000 in fines. In order to carry out work on a tree that has a TPO, you must apply to the local planning authority for permission and this can take up to 8 weeks.
Similarly trees situated in a conservation area are also subject to planning laws. You must apply for permission to carry out any work, which can take up to 6 weeks.
As a professional company, we are obligated to check whether your tree has a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or is situated in a conservation area. If this is the case, we shall inform you and can take care of the planning application and any associated paperwork on your behalf should you wish.
To find out whether your tree has a TPO or is situated in a conservation area, contact your local tree officer.
