Trees benefit us in many ways as they give us cleaner and less polluted air, reduce stress levels, at a local level reduce the impact of flash flooding, address urban heat islands and other extreme weather events.
At Arbor Cultural Ltd. we are passionate about promoting these benefits and where possible sharing their economic value, their social value and their intrinsic value with our clients.
We are able to achieve this by using the various tree valuation systems that are currently available. This will enable us to educate and inspire our clients about the valuable assets that their tree resources are.
We keep up to date with the latest industry developments in terms of scientific discoveries as well as technological advances. We use these discoveries in the day-to-day application of tree management and tree care.
We have invested in the latest technology in terms of cloud-based tree management software, surveying equipment, tree decay detection and vitality testing equipment. We use this to promote the better understanding and management of trees for all of our clients.
We have just purchased some soil decompaction equipment as this is a really important development in the future management of our tree resources.
Our founder Tom Thompson is passionate about this and created the Building Information Modelling for arboriculture (BIM4Arb) group 3 years ago. This has now changed into the Digital Arboriculture Practice group (DAP).
The aim of this group is to find the best way of incorporating digital technology to showcase the importance of trees and the urban forest in the process from conception to design through construction to ongoing use of our urban environment.
We promote trees in everything that we do and are looking to inspire the public by speaking out about the importance of trees at every opportunity. This includes public events, to organisations and corporations, online using our website and social media presence as well as speaking to schools.
It is an incredible opportunity where trees can be used within schools to reinforce educational goals, promote outdoor learning and enable science to be applied practically. This works well within the school curriculum.
Schoolchildren are an important generation, that are increasingly environmentally aware, so this is a massive opportunity to give them the information and tools they need to make a difference when they go into their adult lives, future jobs, and careers.
