The Environment

Aberdeenshire Tree Specialists are an environmentally friendly company. Our commitment wherever possible is to mitigate our environmental impact ensuring the welfare of wildlife and its natural habitat are cared for, and ensure that we leave the environment untouched to conserve our wildlife. Here at Aberdeenshire Tree Specialists we:

  • Use bio-degradable chainsaw oil
  • Purchase equipment designed to reduce environmental impact
  • Work within guidelines set out in the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, the Countryside Rights of Way Act 2000, the Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986 and Part III of the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985


Nesting Birds
All birds and their nests and eggs are protected by law. In England, Scotland and Wales the legislation that protects wild birds is the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. In England and Wales the law has been amended by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 and in Scotland by the Nature Conservation (Scotland) Act 2004.

The amount of protection afforded to wild birds varies depending on whether the species are listed on various Schedules or Licences. At Aberdeenshire Tree Specialists the welfare of birds, wildlife and their natural habitat is our priority when assessing or working on any project.

More information can be found at www.opsi.gov.uk or www.rspb.org.uk

Bats and other Wildlife
Many other species of animals are also protected, e.g. bats and badgers. Aberdeenshire Tree Specialists routinely undertake a Habitat Disturbance Assessment at all sites before undertaking any tree work.
