Our depot situated in Brighton, East Sussex opened in 1994, just nine years after Connick Tree Care was established.This location allows us to serve residential and commercial clients along the south coast from Portsmouth to Hastings and inland towards Gatwick Airport and all of Sussex as well as areas in Kent and Hampshire.
Our Head Office in Reigate covers Surrey and into London.
Brighton is an important location for Connick Tree Care as we won the contract to provide tree maintenance services with Brighton & Hove Council in 1995.
National Elm Collection
Brighton & Hove is home to 17,000 Elm trees. It is Europe’s largest remaining population of Elm trees and was awarded status of holder of the National Elm Collection by Plant Heritage in 1998.
Dutch Elm Disease was introduced to the UK in the late 1960s on Elm logs that originated in the USA. Brighton & Hove is well known for its diligent work to combat this disease, hence the enormous number of trees in the borough.
Connick Tree Care not only maintains the trees within the streets of Brighton, we also survey, consult and manage the trees within the National Elm Collection.
Brighton and the surrounding countryside
It’s not only the beach and the sea that attracts residents and holiday makers to Brighton, 40% of Brighton & Hove is situated in the South Downs National Park. Brighton also has 14 beautiful large parks and just as close to the city are countryside and open green spaces such as Devils Dyke, a favourite spot for hang gliders, and Ditchling Beacon.
The best way to enjoy the many woodland trails is with helpful walk guides perfect for experienced walkers or a family fun day out.
