OWNERSHIP OF TREES
The client guarantees that the trees quoted on are either their own or that they have received written permission from the owner for the proposed works.
Stumps will be reduced to chips by the use of mechanical grinding of the visible tree stumps to below ground level – subject to existing conditions at or near stump i.e. soil, rocks fences and underground services. All care will be taken but we are not responsible for underground services unless located and notified by client. The stump hole will be backfilled with stump chips and excess chips will be left on-site. The chips make excellent garden mulch. Underground and surface roots will not be chased out unless specifically quoted upon.
Branches, leaves and twigs that were generated by our quoted works will be removed and the site left in a clean and tidy condition.
