Lancashire-based green services company Glendale has secured an £810,000 contract with the London Borough of Hillingdon.

The company’s specialists will provide a full range of arboriculture services during the three-year contract, which has the option of being extended for a further two years.

Glendale, which has its headquarters in Chorley, will manage Hillingdon’s arboriculture requirements which include tree surgery, felling, pruning, stump grinding and decay detection across the borough’s 200 green spaces and urban locations.

John McKenna, Glendale’s operations manager for London and the South East, said: “We have a comprehensive plan in place to deliver this contract with high standards and professionalism. It is a real coup for us to be working in partnership with the borough in helping it manage its trees and woodlands.

“The borough has taken a proactive approach in managing its arboriculture and in selecting us as its preferred private sector partner, has secured an expert service that is great value for money.”

Mr McKenna added: “This contract demonstrates Glendale’s strength in arboriculture as we look to grow our business further to secure more prestigious contracts.”

Glendale delivers nine specialist green services – landscaping, grounds maintenance, arboriculture, estate management, cleansing services, vegetation control, woodland management, the supply of plants and semi mature trees, and golf management.

The company is part of Parkwood Holdings plc, based in Lancashire

In July 2013, Glendale Horticulture acquired the trade and assets of RA Meredith and Sons (Nurseries) Limited, enabling Glendale Horticulture to become a major force in the horticulture market.
