We are a team of trees and garden enthusiasts:
Valuable Trees was initiated by Rachel Casimir, trained in garden design at the Versailles National School of Landscape Architecture. She graduated in Tree Biology / tree management by the UMR PIAF and INRA of Clermont Ferrand. She also followed the teaching of the Luxembourg horticultural School on fruit trees and the teaching of Eric Petiot’s on natural tree care. These studies have been supplemented by a rich professional experience in an arboricultural expertise firm.
Opting for a collective work (group of independant consultants), Valuable Trees’ purpose is to gather complementary ‘know-how’. When the project requires it, the result is the fruit of a collaboration with Architects, Landscape architect, Tree Experts or other disciplines.
Valuable Trees’ mission is to provide advice to tree owners on tree management, in accordance with all the proper rules. It also aims to create sustainable parks and gardens, respectful of the Tree.
Our consulting zone:
We are present in Yvelines (Paris area) and visit regularly the French Riviera. Bilingual in English, we may also travel both in France and abroad.
We have been trained in the latest scientific trees research by the teacher-researchers of the UMR PIAF and INRA of Clermont Ferrand. We have also been trained on best shrubs management techniques by respected professionals in this specialised field.
We wish now to use this knowledge to preserve trees as an heritage and to make our contribution in sustainable landscape design.
We adhere to:
Our passion for trees…
Trees have been often subjected to bad treatments or negligence in this twentieth century. 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.
