Knighton has been an approved contractor on the Dorset County Council Greenspaces Framework for the last 10 years. As such, we carry out emergency and planned works on trees right across the county.

We also undertake repairs and maintenance of footpaths and other rights of way, and one of our specialisms is the building and installation of footbridges.

Felling trees behind the beach huts at Canford Cliffs

Recent projects for the Council have seen us working extensively on the A338 Bournemouth Spur Road improvement scheme. In partnership with Hanson Contracting, we carried out the tree and scrubcclearance work necessary to mitigate the effect on the protected species found in the area.

For Poole Borough Council, we have been clearing and managing the wooded areas behind the beach huts on Canford Cliffs over the winter, as well as carrying out vegetation management work on Canford Heath.
