What is Utility Arboriculture?
Utility Arboriculture represents an estimated £150 million of Arboriculture work in the United Kingdom each year. This consists of tree and vegetation management adjacent to electricity supplies, railways, waterways and telecommunication networks. Utility Arboriculture achieves continuity of supply and a safer environment for the general public. It is essential to maintain a critical infrastructure and is a legal requirement for distribution networks.
