Welcome to TreeLincs
Established in 1992 by Mark Hudson, TreeLincs is a multidisciplinary practice based in the Lincolnshire Wolds offering independent, professional and cost effective advice in forestry and arboriculture to customers in both the public and private sectors
However, time passes, and we have decided now is the time to retire
At this point we would like to thank the many and varied people who have contributed to making our working lives a pleasure
The information below will be left available for a little longer,
With best wishes
For up to date information on the current outbreak of Ash dieback disease click on the following link, Chalara which will take you to the Forestry Commission dedicated page on their site, where you can also access information on other pests and diseases threatening trees in the UK. Unfortunately recent experience suggests that only a small percentage of Ash in the UK may show some tolerance to this disease.
Note: assistance towards the replanting of woodlands affected by Ash dieback may be available under the Countryside Stewardship plant health option
Finally, climate change offers both challenges and opportunities, some species will become less suitable, as others, previously not considered, become potential candidates for planting.
The need to reduce carbon emissions is also increasingly strengthening the "carbon futures" market; The Woodland Carbon Code links those looking to improve their green credentials by purchasing "Carbon Credits" with new planting schemes which will absorb ("sequester") verified quantities of carbon through their lifetime. The Forestry Commission website, or your local woodland officer, can offer detail on this and many other matters.
COVID 19 - As the world continues to fight this tragic disease we are advised by government that those in the forestry and arboricultural sectors should continue to work as long as recommended safe practices, including social distancing measures, can be observed
Our trade and professional organisations all offer helpful support on safe working via their websites; for further information see: CONFOR, The Institute of Chartered Foresters, The Royal Forestry Society and The Forestry Commission.
Stay safe and well
