The contract, which begins in February next year with the option to extend for a further two years, will see Gristwood & Toms maintaining more than 100,000 trees across the city's streets, parks, green spaces and education establishments.

Gus Hoyt, the city's assistant Mayor with responsibility for parks, said: "In Bristol we are proud of our rich heritage of trees.

"Through this new contract, we aim to maintain the very highest arboricultural standards and that this will be an efficient and responsive service."

Gristwood & Toms head of sales and marketing Darren Kilby said: "The paybacks from economies of scale allow us to deliver more efficient and cost-effective services to Bristol City Council and we look forward to expanding our commitments."
