Welcome to our new website

Welcome to the new website for Harper Tree Consulting. I am trying something new this time, and building a site to encourage regular visitors by updating the site as much as possible.
I plan to post regular articles and posts that are tree related and hope to include a facility for you to comment on them. This may be of use to Architects and Land Surveyors who may need to know a little more about trees in the course of their work. It may also be of use to home owners, builders, and property developers as well.
Of course, the site will still contain all of the usual information about Harper Tree Consulting as well as offering many ways to contact us.
So why not put us into your ‘Favourites’ folder and check back in from time to time to see whats new. Please don’t hesitate to contact us or comment on the site if you need to.
