Glendale opens new depot and expands arb team following contract win

Glendale is expanding with a new depot in Essex after winning the £3 million grounds maintenance contract at Lee Valley Regional Park in November.

The depot in Waltham Abbey opened on 1 December and the company is recruiting four new tree surgeons to join two tree and timber apprentices from Capel Manor College in north London.

Contract manager Jamie Parish said: "As part of our investment in Waltham Abbey, four new positions have been created and a further three positions are in the pipeline for the coming year."

As well as providing support for the Lee Valley Regional Park Parish, the new Waltham Abbey team will provide a 24-hour call out service for tree related emergencies as well as advising on the tree risks to watch out for over the winter period.

"Tree owners often fail to realise that it is their duty to make sure their trees are maintained to a safe standard," he said.

Lee Valley Regional Park attracts more than 4 million visitors a year and encompasses heritage sites, country parks, sports facilities, farms, golf courses, lakes and riverside trails.
