idverde has provided arboricultural services to Bournemouth Borough Council since the mid-1990s, with the current contract having been re-awarded in April 2011 and subsequently extended.
The contract encompasses tree works across the borough, including works on highways, in housing areas, and in parks and cemeteries, as well as woodland and heathland management, and supporting the Council’s planning and service units.
idverde’s local Arboricultural Association Approved trees team comprises five full-time arboricultural staff, who are supplemented with more of our own qualified staff as required. The works they typically carry out under the contract include:
idverde also provides a 24-hour emergency call-out service with a maximum one-hour response time on the contract. To date, idverde has never failed to meet this obligation, with call-outs varying from a single person removing a branch to multiple response teams working throughout the night.
idverde’s team has a range of equipment at its disposal on the contract to enable them to deal with any arboricultural task. These include:
In order to aid sustainability on the contract idverde plants trees annually to offset the carbon used in its operations, and has also supported biodiversity projects in Bournemouth’s parks by installing bird and bat boxes. We also assist local charity, Diverse Abilities, which collects Christmas trees after the festive season for a small donation from residents. idverde then chips the trees free of charge.
