Green Tree Thinking

At Nicol we talk about green tree thinking as we’re all about exploring what’s possible – the “thinking” – and then investing in the future health of your trees and woodlands – that’s the “green tree” part. Together, we work with our clients to survey and to plan, to plant and to maintain, and, when necessary, to fell, thin and prune for healthy trees for years to come.
