Tree Planting

ArborX offers the planting, establishment, maintenance and protection of young trees including deer management. The

forestry industry is focused on wood and its uses. Commercial forests provide us a large number of goods which include timber, firewood, pulpwood which is used in making paper, food items, gum, resins, non-edible oils, rubber, fibres, lac, bamboo canes, fodder, medicine, drugs, also providing heating, the wood is used to build houses, furniture, flooring, shipping containers and many other products beneficial in our lifes. A carefully planned and managed woodland offers a wide range of benefits beyond supporting biodiversity. Trees can support health and well-being, improve air quality, offer shade for crops and livestock, prevent nutrient loss and soil erosion, improve water quality, and reduce the risk of flooding. Woodlands help tackle the climate emergency, capturing and storing carbon and helping mitigate against the effects of greenhouse gas emissions. Woodland creation can also deliver opportunities to diversify business and create reliable income streams from timber, local wood fuel, carbon offsetting, venison, and recreation. Planting trees mitigates climate change and so much more, trees absorb carbon from the atmosphere, regenerate degraded areas, creates habitat for native species and provides sustainable economic opportunities for rural communities and land owners.

 

Invasive Non-Native Plant Control

We are taking strong measures to ensure non-native invasive species are not allowed to become established in Scotland and stop the spread of those already here. Control of invasive non-native plants such as Rhododendron, Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed, Himalayan Balsam, American Skunk-Cabbage or even Cherry Laurel can be an expensive and difficult task. The presence of these species is generally bad for biodiversity and the conservation of native species, four of these species are listed in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan for control. Tackling invasive non-native species is important for protecting our country’s native plants and animals and is vital for safeguarding our environment, economy and health. These non-native species can spread diseases and result in significant economic impacts on our agriculture, forestry and fisheries. The scale of the problems means we have to prioritise where we work and which threats to tackle, but every one of us has a duty to not cause these invaders to spread from our own gardens or land, with coordinated action we know we can make a difference where they have taken hold. Meeting this threat will help us to be the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we found it.

Fencing & Maintenance

ArborX fencing services are used to keep animals in or out of an area. They can be made from a wide variety of materials, depending on terrain, location and animals to be confined. A fence acts as a deterrent for trespassers, intruders and keeps unwanted wild animals off your property as well. On farms that grow produce, fencing can be used to keep out wildlife that may eat or damage the crops. Deer fencing is erected for any of the following purposes: To exclude deer from woodlands, including plantations, coppiced woodlands, newly planted amenity woodlands and those where natural regeneration is needed to maintain or extend woodland cover. Deer fences have long been a part of forestry in the UK. Deer numbers are so high that without fences it would have been impossible for foresters to establish timber crops. Many native woodland restoration schemes also rely very much on fences to keep hungry mouths away from the regenerating vegetation.

Pesticide Application

ArborX offers an extensive range of solutions for the application of a variety of Pesticides. Pests are a problem in forests just as they are on farms and in gardens. Pesticides can be used in forests and farming improving productivity, controlling weeds, insects, animals or diseases that can damage trees and crops. Pesticide plays a great role in protection of crop losses/yield reduction, controlling the pests and eliminating the insects from the residential, commercial, and agricultural places. Herbicides can be used before or soon after new trees are planted so that young trees do not have to compete with weeds for moisture and nutrients. They could be used to thin brush to reduce fire risks, kill unwanted trees, control weeds, invasive plants and has many other purposes.
