We are a team of professionals passionate about trees and gardens and their best integration into urban landscapes:
Arbre Patrimoine’s mission is to provide advice to tree owners on tree management, in accordance to the best practices. It also aims to create sustainable parks and gardens, respectful of trees.
Opting for a collective work (group of independent consultants), Arbre Patrimoine’s purpose is to gather complementary ‘know-how’.
When the project requires it, the result is the fruit of a collaboration with Architects, Landscape architects, other Tree professionnals, Tree Experts or other disciplines.
‘Arbre Patrimoine’ was created by Rachel Casimir, trained in Garden Design at the Versailles National School of Landscape Architecture. She graduated in Tree Biology / Tree Management with the University UMR PIAF and INRA of Clermont Ferrand. She also followed the teaching of CFPPAH de St Germain en Laye on ornamental trees, the Luxembourg Horticultural School on fruit trees in Paris and the teaching of Eric Petiot on natural tree care. These studies have been supplemented by a rich professional experience in arboricultural consultancy practices.

Singularity of her approach:
Rachel has been trained to the latest Scientific tree’s researches by the Teacher-Researchers of the UMR PIAF and INRA of Clermont Ferrand. She has also been trained to best shrubs management techniques by respected professionals in this specialized field.
Her approach is to use this knowledge and know-how to preserve tree heritage. She aims to inform homeowners about their natural heritage and to optimize the cost of tree population management.
She takes into account existing trees and new plantations (their ecology and physiological needs), well upstream a landscaping project so that they can make a crucial contribution to the design of parks and gardens…
The tree is at the heart of design projects. Projects are then respectful of the biology of this incredible living being.
Keen to transmit knowledge on trees and nourished by previous international professional experience in IT, Rachel is also a webmaster and experimented in natural referencing.

Our passion for trees…
Trees have been often subject to bad treatments or negligence in this twentieth century in France. However, in recent decades, many professionals and scientists actively committed themselves in favour of trees.
A rich literature comments the amenities offered by trees.
Scientific publications and popular scientific information detail the biology and physiology of trees so that this information is accessible to all.
Software now calculates trees economic value in terms of carbon sequestration, storm water retention, air cleaning, heat control etc. Else, trees value is also quantified for their owner as a financial value.
However the protection of trees as a heritage is, in reality, still too little practiced and we aim to ensure that trees are taken into account very upstream in landscaping projects !!!
