A Tree-hugging Town
The historic market town of Melksham in rural Wiltshire was once part of a huge forest, hunting ground of Tudor kings. It is therefore not surprising that West Country Tree Services are called upon very frequently by Melksham residents, businesses and organisations to tend to trees in the town.
Not much remains of the original forest but Melksham retains its affinity for all things arboreal. The town even has a school – Melksham Oak Community School – named for the ancient “Cromwell’s Oak”, believed to be 700 years old, which still stands proudly on the outskirts of the town. Oliver Cromwell is said to have hanged four Royalists from the tree’s branches during the Civil War in 1643.
West Country Tree Services offers specialised, professional care for all the trees and hedges of Melksham, not only keeping them trim, tidy and shapely, but also clearing away dead wood and working to preserve and conserve the old and infirm.
As certified arborists (members of the International Society of Aboriculture) we at West Country Tree Services not only consult with a large number of domestic clients in Melksham and surroundings, but also are kept busy solving all sorts of tree-related problems for local enterprises in the area, from schools and property developers to construction firms and country estates.
We’ve gained an excellent reputation in Melksham for our nimble green-fingered tree surgery, as well as the fact that we always leave our worksites pristine once the job is done. All green waste is recycled as bio-mass, garden mulch or compost.
As tree surgeons based in Melksham we undertake work such as crown thins and balancing, re-shaping, pollarding, pruning and stump removal. We’re also expert hedge trimmers and are well qualified to give advice on all aspects of tree care and maintenance.
