Sharon Hosegood Associates is an innovative arboricultural consultancy providing advice on managing trees on development sites, in the wider landscape and within the community. I have particular expertise in tree root radar investigations, technical solutions with construction and trees and also design and deliver community engagement projects. We provide bespoke, yet pragmatic arboricultural solutions to the construction industry, the NHS, local authorities and landowners. We believe that the best way to ensure that treescapes are sustainable is to work with the community. Understanding how local people live with local trees can help our local authority clients tailor effective tree strategies. Volunteering in a wood and community garden is so much more than changing the landscape. It can change lives.
