Bawden won the contract – which commenced on 1 May - after a competitive tender process. The contract comprises all tree surgery works, the surveying of tree stock in the city centre, woodland management, planting, consultancy on tree biomechanics, defects, pests and diseases, development of a tree safety strategy, and emergency call out works.

Tree care manager David Abrahams said: "Bawden Tree Care is a local company that employs local tree surgeons. We are proud to hold this contract and relish the challenge of maintaining Salisbury's existing tree stock and ensuring future generations continue to enjoy this beautiful tree-filled city."

Bawden has been carrying out tree surgery works in Wiltshire and Dorset for over 35 years. Since achieving 'Approved Contractor' status with the Arboricultural Association in December 2014 the company has won several large contracts and framework ppointments for County Councils and other organisations for which accredited professional competency is a pre-requisite.
